Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Student 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.


Concept Builder: Position-Time Graphs - Numerical Analysis

Students like Concept Builders! They're phun! And helpful. They include a collection of questions to answer. Feedback to your answers is immediate. Each question includes a Help page. Dataways, stars, and trophies are your rewards as you apply Physics principles to work your way through a variety of activities. There are three activities in this Concept Builder; the second activity - Know Your V - is a perfect follow-up to this video tutorial.


MOP the App #1: Kinematics Concepts, Mission KC4: Slope of a Position-Time Graph

You want a work-out? We got one for you. It's called Minds On Physics. You can download it to your phone as an app. You're looking for App #1 of the six-part App series. Each app consists of modules (topic). App #1 has three modules; you want the second module titled Kinematic Graphing. Each module consists of several missions. You want the fourth mission - it's titled KG4: Slope of a Position-Time Graph. Start it up, put on your thinking cap, and get some rigorous practice to solidify the skill of determining the velocity of a position-time graph. And by the way - as long as you have the app on your phone you should use it quite regularly. If you're serious about learning physics, then MOPs is a serious solution to your need.


Physics Classroom Tutorial: 1D Kinematics Chapter:  Lesson 3 on Determining Slope

We have a written Tutorial on our website. The language is easy to understand. It makes a great reference. You should know its there and use it as a resource when needed.
