D. Wong, P. Sng, E. Ng, and L. Wee, Phys. Educ., 46 (2), 178 (2011).
We describe an example of learning with multiple representations in an A-level revision lesson on mechanics. The context of the problem involved the motion of a ball thrown…
Falling U-shaped Chain Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:

Byline:
W. Christian
The Falling U-Shaped Chain model simulates the dynamics of a discrete falling chain with total length L and n links. Each link is acted on by the force of gravity mg and by the…
Rotation About A Fixed Axis Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Rotation About a Fixed Axis example computes the angular momentum of a rigid rectangular box attached to a rotating axle. The fixed axis is in the z-direction. Users can tilt the…

Byline:
A. Duffy
The One Dimensional Collision model allows the user to collide two objects and investigate whether momentum and/or kinetic energy are conserved in the collision process. To keep…
Free Fall Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Free Fall model allows the user to examine the motion of an object in freefall. This is simply one-dimensional motion (vertical motion) under the influence of gravity. The…
Free Fall Air Resistance Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Free Fall Air Resistance model allows the user to examine the motion of an object in freefall, and you can compare what happens with air resistance to what happens without air…
Vector Addition with Integer Components  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Vector Addition with Integer Components model allows the user to split a vector into its components, and practice finding the magnitude and direction of a vector if you know the…
Vector Addition Patterns Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
The Vector Addition Patterns model illustrates the tail-to-tip method of adding vectors. The table at the bottom shows the components and lengths of the vectors. You can also rotate…
Graph Matching Motion Model  [ Computer Program ]
