## Teacher Resources

The Physics Classroom has been devoted to helping students, teachers, and classrooms since the 1990s. We are as passionate about that mission now as we have ever been. If you are a teacher of Physics or Physical Science, we encourage you to use our Video Tutorial with your students. And we also encourage you to consider the use of other resources on our website that coordinate with the video. We have listed a few below to help you get started.

Curriculum Corner, Circular Motion and Gravitation

Get students active and thinking with our free Think Sheets from the Curriclum Corner section of our website. Here's a couple to get you started ...

Speed and Velocity

Acceleration and Circular Motion

Try a Teacher Toolkit ... you might be very glad that you did. Each toolkit includes annotated links to vetted resources from across the web that we feel reliably support the specific topic. Give this one on circular motion a try.

Physics Interactives: Uniform Circular Motion

There's nothing like fun on the playground. And here at our Physics Interactives section, students can alter a variable and observe the effect. Rich visual displays enhance the experience. Grab our free activity sheet and plan a lesson around this simulation on uniform circular motion.

Minds On Physics: Mission CG1

Minds On Physics is like good medicine. It may not taste good going down but once its effect kick in you feel better. Give your students a dose of MOPs with this mission on the topic of speed and velocity.

Concept Builder: Circular Logic

This Concept Builder gets students thinking quantitatively about the topic of velocity, acceleration and force for objects moving in circles. And with a Task Tracker account, you can assign this as out-of-class work and check students' progress results.

The Calculator Pad is the go-to place for anything pertaining to problem-solving. You'll find problems, answers, and audio-guided solutions. Point your students to these five problems to improve your skill their calculating speed and acceleration values.

A portion of this video tutorial pertains to the concepts of speed and velocity. This written tutorial page provides a great reference for freshening up on the topic. Include a link on your course management page.

Physics Classroom Tutorial: Circular and Satellite Motion Chapter, Acceleration

A portion of this video tutorial pertains to the concept of acceleration. Students can get the skinny quickly with this written Tutorial page.  Include a link on your course management page.
