Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Student 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 he use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives - Vector Walk

Like all our Interactive simulations, this Vector Walk simulation will give you an interactive experience that targets the distinction between distance and displacement.


Distance vs. Displacement Concept Builder

Students love Concept Builders and this one on Distance vs. Displacement will give you plenty of practice with those troubling Back-and-Forth problems.


Minds on Physics App#1: Mission KC2 of Kinematic Concepts Module

If you're serious about learning Physics, our Minds On Phyiscs apps may quench your thirst. Master any concept using this interactive questioning module available as an app on mobile devices. Having difficulties? Then tap the textbook and get question-specific help.


Tutorial on Distance vs. Displacement

If you need a quick reference, the Tutorial section of our website can deliver. Visit the 1D Kinematics Chapter and see the page on Distance vs. Displacement in Lesson 1.
