This CoolStuff post walks you through an investigation for students to learn about projectile motion and several different lab challenges you can do with your students related to projectile motion.
This CoolStuff post leverages a unique low-tech approach that allows students to leave their first day of class with the memorable experience of creating a model to explain their hypothesis.
Walk through an introductory physics lab that allows students to develop a model for the relationship between an object’s kinetic energy and velocity.
This CoolStuff post describes an introductory physics lab that allows students to develop a model of the relationship between an object’s acceleration and its mass using Newton’s 2nd law of motion.
This introductory physics lab helps students separate the concepts of mass and weight and uses experimental data to build a model of the relationship between the two variables.
An easy way to introduce students to some of the different representations of motion is to have them investigate the motion of a Constant Velocity Car.
Explore the concept of the essential topic, Electric Circuits, with experiments that cover the conservation of charge, the conservation of energy, the flow of current and the concept of voltage.
Explore illustrations on how Newton's cradle utilizes the conservation of energy. These demonstrations allow for students to engage with the conversion of kinetic energy and visualize it in memorable way!
