Teacher Resources

The Physics Classroom has been devoted to helping students, teachers, and classrooms since the 1990s. We are as passionate about that mission now as we have ever been. If you are a teacher of Physics or Physical Science, we encourage you to use our Video Tutorial with your students. And we also encourage you to consider the use of other resources on our website that coordinate with the video. We have listed a few below to help you get started.



Case Studies: Impulse and Force Concept Builder

Our Concept Builder program may be the very thing your students need to solidify their learning. When combined with our Task Tracker program, it makes an excellent and cost effective homework-tracking tool. This particular one has two levels of difficulty and emphasizes a omparison of two contrasting collisions. This is the ideal follow-up to the video lesson.


Being Impulsive About Momentum Concept Builder

Here's another Concept Builder to strengthen your Conceptual understandings. The main outcomes of this Concept Builder is an understanding of the mathematical connection between impulse and momentum change. 



Curriculum Corner, Momentum and Collision Chapter

Our free curriculum is a rock-solid tool for a guided "next step". They can be used as an individual check-up or in cooperative group settings. Here's two Think Sheets to follow-up on the Controlling a Collision video.

Momentum, Impulse, and Momentum Change

Controlling a Collision


Physics Interactives; Egg Drop Simulation

Thinking about an Egg Drop project? This simulation would make a great pre-cursor or follow-up to the project. And it provides an awesome correlatoin to this video lesson on Controlling a Collision.


The Calculator Pad, Momentum and Collisions Section, Problems #3-#11

Not all Physics courses are created equal. If yours emphasizes the solving of Physics word problems, then get acquainted with our Calculator Pad section. You will find problems with a wide range of difficulty level, answers to every problem, and an audio-guided solution. This page has 8 problems to get you started with using the F•∆t = m•∆v equation. Check it out!


Minds On Physics the App, Part 3, Missions MC2 - MC3

Minds On Physics is not for the meek. But many teachers swear by it ... particularly teachers of honors, IB, and AP Physics 1. If you've not seen it in operation, it's worth taking a look. For devoted students, it can be an awesome tool. Missions MC2 - MC3 on App #3 correlate with this video lesson.


Physics Classroom Tutorial, Momentum and Its Conservation Chapter, Lesson 1: Real World Applications

Our Tutorial section always comes through with a common sense explanation of a topic. It makes a great written reference. Many teachers include links to our Tutorial from their course space. This particular page complements our video lesson.

Teacher Toolits - Impulse and Momentum Change

We love our Teacher Toolkits. You will too. They include a collection of annotated links to vetted resources from accross the web that we feel coordinate very well with the resources on our own website. Check this one out!
