Physics to Go
Physics to Go is a collection of websites where you can learn physics on your own, through games, webcasts, and online exhibits and activities. Also included are physics on the road programs, which bring demonstration shows, and in some cases hands-on activities, to you, the audience. To find the resources you want, you can browse the collection and search our database by content topic, resource type, and grade level. We encourage your involvement in Physics To Go. Once you have registered and
In this class, students learn about physics principles by examining the physics responsible for producing music with electronic stringed instruments, while building, testing, and playing their own electric guitar. Students will design their own Guitar bodies, construct their own pick-ups, assemble their own guitars, tune them using a chromatic tuner, and use them to play a simple song. While the instructions here give enough detail that an independent learner could construct their own guitar, pl
Relevant material from MIT's introductory courses to support students as they study and educators as they teach the AP Physics curriculum.
"Everything Was Lively": David Hickman Describes the Prosperity Late Nineteenth-Century Railroads Br
The availability of rail connections often determined whether a western community would survive or die. The rails fostered prosperity by bringing both goods and people. This trade, and the local service industries that sprouted up to capitalize on the movement of people and goods, drove many local economies. Here, David Hickman talked about the boom years that followed the arrival of the railroad in the Latah County, Idaho town of Genesee in the 1880s.
"He'll Come Home in a Box": The Spanish Influenza of 1918 Comes to Montana
In 1918 and 1919, the Spanish influenza killed 550,000 people in the United States and 20 to 40 million worldwide. In a 1982 interview with Laurie Mercier, Loretta Jarussi of Bearcreek, Montana, described how people would pass through that tiny town seemingly healthy, only to be reported dead two days later. Her father went undiagnosed for many weeks and had plans to go to a nearby hot springs to rest. She believed that her father's death was averted only because the son of the local doctor was
Using Popcorn to Simulate Radioactive Decay
In this activity popping popcorn is used to illustrate the spontaneity, unpredictability, and irreversible change associated with radioactive decay. This site provides notes and tips, a list of teaching materials and methods, and links to related online resources.
Ten questions for planning an oral history project
Plan ahead to avoid frustration and to ensure that your students get as much as possible out of an oral history project.
TÜ Loodusteadusliku hariduse lektoraadi vastavatel kursustel (Loodusteaduste visualiseerimine) osalenud õpetajate koostatud interaktiivsed mudelid bioloogiliste protsesside tundmaõppimiseks. Kuigi mudeleid ei saa lugeda lõplikult viimistletuks, on nad õppeprotsessi visualiseerimiseks asjakohased: kasvõi ideede saamiseks. Kasutajal on soovitav fail enne oma arvutisse salvestada ning vajadusel täiendada.

Dept Seminar: Forms of detachment and ethical regard
In this Anthropology dept seminar (29 October 2010), Dr James Laidlaw (University of Cambridge) focuses on forms of detachment in North India, including the role of the anthropologist as observer
Hyundai in rare earth supply move
Hyundai Motor proposes changes to management rules, to allow greater flexibility when it comes to securing rare earth supplies for future hybrid and electric models.
In molecular physics it is recognized that there is a coupling of rotational and vibrational energy-levels. In molecular physics rotational-vibrational coupling is also called rovibronic coupling and Coriolis coupling. The physics of actual diatomic molecules is more complicated than the example in this animation, but because of its simplicity the animation is useful for illustrating the basic principles.
Record and report on sedimentation and clarification processes
This learning object contains resources and activities that focus on recording and reporting requirements for the sedimentation and clarification processes in a water treatment plant. The key areas are: record relevant information and report back. The task is to record and report on work completed in the sedimentation and clarification processes.

Description not set
This site provides a free physics textbook that tells the story of how it became possible, after 2500 years of exploration, to answer such questions. The book is written for the curious: it is entertaining, surprising and challenging on every page. With little mathematics, starting from observations of everyday life, the text explores the most fascinating parts of mechanics, thermodynamics, special and general relativity, electrodynamics, quantum theory and modern attempts at unification. The es
The book is intended to be a comprehensive resource for technologists in the developing world, providing the information that they need to build real networks. By bringing this knowledge to the outer edges of the Internet, we hope to help jumpstart the construction of vital network infrastructure. Besides the topics included in the first edition, covering from basic radio physics and network design to equipment and troubleshooting, the second edition includes a new chapter dedicated to Voice ove
