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.

Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces Concept Builder

Students love Concept Builders. They provide a great way to solidify your learning on a topic. This one on Balanced vs. Unbalanced forces will help you associate the force diagram with the described motion of the object.

Which One Doesn't Belong (Newton's Laws) Concept Builder

Do Physics while you play the classic game of One of these things is not like the other ... which one doesn't belong?  Given three, four or five representations of a motion, you must identify which one doesn't correspond with the other ones.

Force and Motion Concept Builder

The forces acting upon an object are described by a force diagram and you must determine what the resulting motion could be. Put your thinking cap on and prepare to discard any erroneous ideas you have about force and motion.

Race Track Interactive

Engage in this turn-based game in which you tap on force buttons to guide a race car around a track in the least number of moves.  If first you don't succeed, try again. If you still don't succeed, watch more videos an think hard about the connection between force and motion and (as Mom and Dad would warn) watch your speed.

Physics Classroom Tutorial - Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 1

Our Physics Classroom Tutorial has a proven record of explaining hard-to-understand concepts in an easy-to-understand language. Lesson 1 of the Newton's Laws chapter provides exceptional support to this video lesson.
