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.

Physics Interactives, Work and Energy section, Chart That Motion

This concept-building activity provides 11 different scenarios and you must match each to the corresponding work-energy bar chart. This is great practice. 

Minds On Physics, Work and Energy Module, Mission WE6

We are particularly fond of this mission from our Minds On Physics program. It combines an interactive equation with a bar chart selection. You must tap on equation terms to cancel 0 terms and then select the bar chart that matches the stated motion. It's an awesome follow-up to the video.


Concept Builders, Work and Energy section, Match That Bar Chart

Concept Builders are always great for ... building concepts. This one stands up to the claim. You'e given a motion scenario and must tap through about 5 or so options of bar charts that match the scenario. Great thinking. Great learning. 


Physics Classroom Tutorial, Work, Energy and Power Chapter, Bar Chart Illustrations

Our written Tutorial section is the go-to place to freshen up on a concept. This page is the written equivalent (more or less) of the video.
