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.


Minds On Physics, Work and Energy Section: Mission WE5

"MOPs" is a tough task-master. But when you finish a mission, you know you understand the material. Take the challenge. Do a Minds On Physics mission.

Concept Builder, Work and Energy Section: Work

In this Concept Builder, you will learn to identify whether positive, negative, or zero work is being done, to identify the force that is doing the work, and to describe the energy transformation associated with such work. This is a great follow-up to the video.

Concept Builder, Work and Energy Section: Stepping Up with PE and KE

Review the three forms of mechanical energy with this interactive exerise. 

Physics Tutorial - Work, Energy, and Power Chapter, Internal vs. External Forces

When you need to brush up on any topic, we recommend a trip to the Physics Classroom Tutorial. Its easy-to-understand language combined with informative graphics and appeals to your sense of reason make this a powerful learning tool. This page is the written equivalent of the video.
