Teaching 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.

Curriculum Corner: Newton's Laws Chapter

The Curriculum Corner provides classroom-ready Think Sheets that fuel great in-class discussions. The think sheets on Mass and Weight and The Elephant and the Feather might be great follow-ups to this video tutorial.

Minds On Physics App #2, Newton's Laws Module, Mission NL5

Minds On Physics isn't for the weak. But those who are passionate about their studies in Physics and who have the patience and willingness to adjust their thinking will benefit greatly from this rigorous app. Carefully-crafted questions on specific topics, combined with an in-depth question specific tutorial make the app a great choice for those who wish to master physics. Mission NL5 is a great follow-up to this video.

Physics Interactives:Your Weight on Other Planets

Weight varies with location. Mass is independent of location. This concept can be explored with our Your Weight on Other Planets simulation.


Physics Interactives:The Value of g

So the value of g is 9.8 N/kg on Earth. This fun little simulations allows one to view the value of g at approximately 50 locations about the Earth. What's the pattern in the data?


The Physics Classroom Tutorial, Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 2, Types of Forces

You need a written reference? We have one. It's called The Physics Classroom Tutorial and it has a long record of helping teachers and learners of Physics.
