In this episode, host Dianna Cowern conducts and explains 5 scary physics experiments. She uses dry ice, a Van de Graaff generator, and a plasma ball to demonstrate a few principles of physics. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
K-12 teachers attend a summer institute in physics education to learn the "guided inquiry" method of teaching physics. They learn inquiry skills by working through problems and experiments, questioning each other's rationales, and modeling the instructors' method of asking questions that "correct reasoning." The institute's purpose is not only to change the way physics is taught, but also to clarify teachers' understanding of basic physics principles.
Introduces physics concepts as they relate to mechanics, optics, and electricity. Supports the learning of these concepts in tandem with the textbooks also offered by the publisher. Encourages hands-on activities.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern provides exam tips and tricks. She discusses the hardest exam she took in college and explains how to answer questions from an exam on classic mechanics. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
Part of the "Active Physics, Third Edition" series. Contains the following sections: "Using Models: Intersections with a Yellow Light," "Sports Montage Introduction," "Conservation of Energy: Defy Gravity," "Safety Montage Introduction," "Acceleration Due to Gravity: Free Fall on the Moon," and "Modeling Human Motion: Bounding on the Moon."
During a trip to CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, host Dianna Cowern discusses dark matter with a theoretical physicist. Scientists at CERN are using the Large Hadron Collider to search for dark matter. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
Part of a series that features a wide variety of video footage, photographs, diagrams and colorful, animated graphics and labels. Begins with a simple definition of the term and concludes with a critical thinking question. For this particular video, students will focus on the term physics. Part of the Science Video Vocab Series.
What is physics? The Standard Deviants introduce students to some of the basic vocabulary and concepts found in physics. Topics covered include scientific notation, numbers, units, scalars, and vectors. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
It's not just movie magic, discover the science behind invisibility cloaks. Two MIT scientists explain the physics of light and how an invisible cloak could theoretically work. Part of the "Science Out Loud" series.
When Ryan spins a bike wheel, nothing crazy happens. But something weird happens when he flips it over. He explains the physics behind the conservation of angular momentum. Part of the "MIT Physics Demos" series.
When Natalia flips a switch, a huge explosion happens. She explains the physics behind Ohm's Law. Part of the "MIT Physics Demos" series.
It seems like something strange is happening with the laws of physics when falling thousands of feet from the sky. Turns out, everything relies on the simple force of drag. Part of the "Science Out Loud" series.
The Standard Deviants start off with the concept of heat transfer. Students learn how much energy it takes to raise the temperature of a substance. This episode also discusses how matter changes state. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern discusses the physics behind vortex rings. She uses some food coloring in a swimming pool to demonstrate the creation of vortices. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
What does it take to get a sailboat moving in the water? With the help of some of the Bay Area’s top aerospace engineers, students learn that sailboats don’t simply rely on wind to push them forward but that there are other invisible forces that are fundamental to the process. In fact, the physical elements that make a sailboat sail are the same ones that make an airplane fly.
In this episode, the Standard Deviants tackle thermodynamics. The study of thermodynamics involves the conversion of energy to useful forms of power. They discuss the three laws of thermodynamics, heat engines, work processes, heat sources, and entropy. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
The Standard Deviants discuss two-dimensional kinematics and motion in a plane. They also look at the role gravity plays in projectile motion and highlight some important equations for figuring out projectile motion and uniform circular motion. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
The Standard Deviants teach students how to multiply vectors. Students also explore kinematics, displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
The Standard Deviants discuss the three laws of Sir Isaac Newton. This branch of study is also known as Newtonian physics, and it applies to everyday conditions of speed, time, and gravitational pull. Other topics covered include forces in equilibrium, mass as opposed to weight, inertia, static and kinetic friction, and tension. Part of the "Standard Deviants School: Physics" series.
