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, it's 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: Vibrational Motion, Period and Frequency of a Pendulum

Students love Concept Builders! And they help. Here's one on the period of a pendulum. Give it a try!


Concept Builders: Vibrational Motion, Pendulum Motion - Velocity and Force

This Concept Builder provides a great opportunity to put to practice the ideas in the first half of the video. Give yourself the essential check for understanding as the video and Concept Builder were designed to be paired together.
