A set of instructional pages written in an easy-to-understand language and complemented by graphics and Check Your Understanding sections. An ideal starting location for those grasping for understanding or searching for answers.
A large collection of GIF animations and QuickTime movies designed to demonstrate physics principles in a visual manner. Each animation is accompanied by explanations and links to further information.
A collection of pages which feature interactive Shockwave files that simulate a physical situation. Users can manipulate a variable and observe the outcome of the change on the physical situation.
The Minds On Physics Internet Modules utilize a collection of carefully crafted questions to improve students' conceptions of physics. Interactive Shockwave files have been combined with web-based instructional resources to engage students in an exercise in thinking, reflecting and learning. Students will enjoy using these for practice and teachers can use them as homework assignments.
With problems, answers and solutions, The Calculator Pad offers the beginning student of physics the opportunity to conquer the most dreaded part of a physics course - physics word problems. Each problem is accompanied by a concealed answer which can be revealed by clicking a button. And each audio-guided solution not only explains how to solve the particular problem, but describes habits which can be adopted for solving any problem.
A collection of pages with questions and answers/explanations which serve as reviews or practice. Each review complements a chapter from The Physics Classroom Tutorial.
A variety of question-and-answer pages which target specific concepts and skills. Topics range from the graphical analysis of motion and drawing free body diagrams to a discussion of vectors and vector addition.
Calling all high school juniors: You've trusted The Physics Classroom to help prepare you for that unit exam in physics. Why not trust us to help prepare you for the biggest test of the year - the ACT test? That's right. Let the TPC help you with the ACT.
A collection of classroom ready worksheets for use by teachers with their classes. Pages are synchronized to readings from The Physics Classroom Tutorial and to assignments of The Minds On Physics Internet Modules. And now teachers can purchase the Solutions Guide CD containing complete answers, explanations and solutions to all worksheets. This is a section of great usefulness to teachers and of little interest to students.
The Science Reasoning Center includes teacher-friendly and classroom-ready resources for culturing your students' science reasoning skills. A resource CD is also offered to assist you in your efforts to develop a plan that both improves and assesses your students' abilities to interpret data, analyze experiments, and evaluate models and theories.
While you explore the approximately 150 labs here at The Laboratory, you will likely generate some questions about how they are used and how you can use them. This page, and the pages it links to, are hoped to provide some answers to those questions.
The Photo Gallery provides teachers a toolbox of physics-relevant photos from the wealth of photos on Flickr. The Photo Gallery offers teachers three things: access to photos, organized by topic; a collection of nearly 30 galleries; and an invitation to join this exciting project of capturing and sharing physics phenomenon with a camera. Of course, students are welcome to participate as well.
