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.

Physics Interactives: Graphs and Ramps

This phun simulation challenges learners to build a ramp along which a ball will roll in order to create a graph that matches a target graph. Correct your mistakes and learn as you work your way through the various levels of the game.


Velocity-Time Graphs Concept Builder

Students love Concept Builders. And here's one on the conceptual aspects of velocity-time graphs. Combine your understanding of constant speed and changing speed motions in order to answer questions and win the Trophy.

Words and Graphs Concept Builder

You can't beat a Concept Builder for providing a reinforcement of an idea and a check-up of your understanding. And this particular one will help you think through the use of slope calculations when making meaning of a verbal description of an object's motion that included numerical information.


Minds On Physics the App #1: Missioi KG8 on Slope and Area of Velocity-Time Graphs

Elevate your game to a whole other level with Minds On Physics. This mobile app is not for light-weights; it will provide a rigorous workout for those who are serious about learning Physics. Mission KG8 of the Kinematic Graphing module may be the perfect follow-up to this video.

Physics Classroom Tutorial: 1D-Kinematics Chapter, Lesson 4

Sometimes a student just needs a written reference. And that might be where our Tutorial fits into this presentation. You've watched the video but you need a quick refresher a few days afterwards. Our Tutorial provides the perfect review. The link above fast-forwards you to the page on slope calculations for velocity-time graphs. Perfect!
