Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Concept Builders: Free-Body Diagrams for Inclined Planes

Students love Concept Builders and this one is a perfect follow up to the video. Given a description of the motion of an object along an inclined plane, use the interactive tools to construct a free-body diagram. 


Concept Builders: Solve It! - Inclined Planes

Here's another Concept Builder to put your analytical skills to the test.  There are three levels of difficulty, each having two multi-part problems to solve. The problems bear a strong resemblance to Slides 9 and 10. Tap the Help Me! button to get some help specific to the problem. 


Minds On Physics, Missions 2DF5 and 2DF6

Minds on Physics can provide a student a rigorous work-out on any topic. Give your brain some exercise and your conceptual understanind a test with a MOP mission. Each question comes with a thorough commentary of the Physics associated with that question. Give Missions 2D5 and 2DF6 a try as a perfect follow-up to this video.

Tutorial Section, Motion and Vectors in Two Dimensions, Lesson 3

The go-to place at The Physics Classroom for a topic-specific and understandable discussion is the Tutorial section. The following page is a great complement to this video:
