Activity: Identifying a Solid Using Density
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Effective measurement techniques include the concept of measurement uncertainty. Students may make erroneous conclusions analyzing data using measurements that do not include the uncertainty of the measurement. In this lab, students determine a density range for a metal and identify the material based on this range.

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lab-based activity the students will use their knowledge about the law of conservation of energy to explain the loss of heat by warm water to cold water. Then, the students will use these concepts to design and carry an experiment to determine the unknown temperature of a hot water sample.

Afterimage
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity about light and perception, learners discover how a flash of light can create a lingering image called an "afterimage" on the retina of the eye. Learners will be surprised when they continue to see an image of a bright object after staring at it and looking away. Use this activity to introduce learners to principles of optics and perception as well as to explain why the full moon often appears larger when it is on the horizon than when it is overhead. This lesson guide also includes a few extensions like how to take "afterimage photographs."

Analyzing Forces and Motion Graphs by Riding an Elevator
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This activity is an indoor lab where students will make predictions of what a force vs time and acceleration vs time graph will look like for a ride in an elevator going down and up. Students will collect data remotely using a Force Plate and accelerometer and then download the data to the computer for further analysis.

Rating
0.0 stars

Ballistic Pendulum is an activity that utilizes the Law of Conservation of Energy and the Law of Conservation of Momentum to determine the velocity of a Peanut M&M that is shot from a cannon into a cup. The activity walks students through the problem step by step to get the outcome, asking conceptual and math problems along the way to obtain the final product: the velocity of the Peanut M&M.

Angular velocity and speed

In uniform circular motion, angular velocity (𝒘) is a vector quantity and is equal to the angular displacement (Δ𝚹, a vector quantity) divided by the change in time (Δ𝐭). Speed is equal to the arc length traveled (S) divided by the change in time (Δ𝐭), which is also equal to |𝒘|R. And arc length (S) is equal to the absolute value of the angular displacement (|Δ𝚹|) times the radius (R).

Anti-Gravity Mirror

Rating
0.0 stars

In this demonstration, amaze learners by performing simple tricks using mirrors. These tricks take advantage of how a mirror can reflect your right side so it appears to be your left side. To make the effect more dramatic, cover the mirror with a cloth, climb onto the table, straddle the mirror, and then drop the cloth as you appear to "take off." This resource contains information about how this trick was applied during the making of the movie "Star Wars."
