Additional Learning Tools and 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 the use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives: Vibrating Mass on a Spring

This interactive simulation allows you to explore the back-and-forth motion of a mass on a spring. Change the mass, the nature of the spring, and the amount of damping and observe the result. A few minutes with this sim will spring you forward in your understanding of vibrational motion.
