MIT Tech TV: Physics Demos - Sep 10, 2016
Beautifully-crafted videos to help kids visualize motion, wave interactions, electricity, and magnetism. Superb videography; easy to embed.
Interactive Video Vignettes - Sep 10, 2016
IVV combines video analysis and conceptual physics questions, each designed to promote understanding of difficult concepts.
Virtual Microscope - Jun 2, 2016
Robust free tool to explore high-resolution images produced by electron, fluorescence, and atomic force microscopes. Datasets are shared via Java RE.
Free, simulation tool developed to help students grasp underlying concepts necessary to approach and solve heat transfer problems.
Tracker Video Analysis gives students a real edge over traditional video modeling. First, capture a digital file, calibrate scale, and define axes. Now the fun part: students define force expressions & initial conditions, then watch the model draw and overlay itself on the video. Great way to directly compare the model with real-world motion!
Periodic Table Live! - Mar 25, 2015
Excellent interactive resource for exploring the Periodic Table through image sets, videos, and 3D illustrations. Covers a broad range of information about the elements and their properties.
Concord Consortium: Phase Change - Mar 25, 2015
A very effective tool for helping students visualize the intermolecular attractions that underlie a phase change. Highlight an atom, view its trajectory, and see how the motion differs in each of the 3 primary phases. (Adaptable for grades 8-12).
Concord Consortium: Electrostatics - Feb 25, 2015
Exemplary digital lesson provides a rich way for students to visualize charge interaction and explore Coulomb's Law at the atomic level. Allow one full class period.
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory: Eyes on the Solar System - Jan 2, 2015
NASA brings together a rich array of visualization tools for a 3D exploration of our cosmic neighborhood. Informative, interactive,and great fun!
EJS Simulations by High School Physics Teachers - Jan 2, 2015
