Teaching Harmonic Motion Online Using Tracker
written by Kathleen M. Koenig and Sarah Baker
A University of Cincinnati physics laboratory that demonstrates how Tracker, together with prerecorded videos, can be used to deliver online force and motion experiments that maintain the rigor and essential features of in-person labs.  The  Harmonic Motion experiment is organized around a central research question that explicitly targets causal and hypothetical reasoning embedded in cycles of inquiry, reflection, evaluation, and communication of outcomes.  

Supplemental documents available here include:

  • A Tracker trz archive with sample videos and student handouts.
  • Harmonic and motion videos in zip archives.
  • Harmonic Motion instructions.
  • Harmonic Motion handout.
  • Instructor notes.

See The Physics Teacher paper titled "Maintaining Essential Course Features When Moving Introductory Physics Labs Online" by Kathleen Koenig and Sarah Baker for a detailed description of the online course.
