A Welcome to Let's Code Physics

March 17, 2021 by W. Brian Lane

The Let's Code Physics YouTube channel has many tutorials freely available for you to integrate into your physics course. Designed for physics courses of any level, these tutorials introduce physics concepts and computational methods together to help your students explore interesting problems that would otherwise remain inaccessible.

Capture, Code, Compare: Integrating computational modeling with video analysis

March 9, 2020 by W. Brian Lane

Capture, Code, Compare activities combine hand-on labs with computer modeling.  Students use video tracking to capture the motion of an object, code a model that reproduces the behavior of the physical system, then compare the quantitative results of the video analysis with the results from the computer model.  I'll go through an example of one of my activities in an introductory mechanics course.
