Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Student 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 Builder: Name That Motion

Students love Concept Builders. In this one, you have to match a given motion to the proper verbal description. You are shown an animation and corresponding dot diagram. You have 11 sets of words to chose from that describe the motion. The CB requires an understanding of acceleration; watch that video before doing the Concept Builder..

Concept Builder: Motion Diagrams
This is the perfect follow-up to the video. You have to use your understanding to create motion diagrams - dot diagrams and vector diagrams combined. You will need to understand acceleration to be successful. If you have not learned about acceleration, Watch that video before doing the Concept Builder.


MOP the App #1: Kinematics Concepts, Mission KC5: Oil Drop Representations

Here's a bold statement: you will not find a better exercise for putting knowledge to practice than the Minds On Physics program. Available as an app on several devices, the MOP program consists of carefully crafted questions that target discrete concepts. Mission KC5 on App#1 is a great follow-up to this video lesson. If you are serious about learning Physics, this is a great activity.

The Tutorial, Kinematics Chapter, Lesson 2, Ticker Tape Diagrams

The Tutorial section of our website remains the most visited section on the site ... and for good reason. Visitors walk away having learned something. It makes a great written reference to this video lesson.
