Teacher 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.


Being Impulsive About Momentum Concept Builder

Our Concept Builder program may be the very thing your students need to solidify their learning. When combined with our Task Tracker program, it makes an excellent and cost effective homework-tracking tool. This particular one has three levels of difficulty and addresses the mathematical analysis of collisions from an impulse and momentum change perspective.


Curriculum Corner: Momentum and Collisions

Our free cuuriculum coordinates with all sections of our website and consists of a large collection of Think Sheets that work well as both independent work and in cooperative group settings. The Momentum, Impulse, and Momentum Change think sheet is an excellent classroom tool for a follow-up to this activity.


The Calculator Pad, Momentum and Collisions Section, Problems #3-#11

If your course provides a moderate to heavy emphasis on the solving of Physics word problems, then the Calculator Pad should become your friend (and more importantly, your students' friend). Each chapter contains a set of problems with answers and an audio-guided solution. Send your students there to improve their problem-solving skills.


Minds On Physics the App, Part 3, Mission MC2

Minds On Physics is not for the meek. But many teachers swear by it ... particularly teachers of honors, IB, and AP Physics 1. If you've not seen it in operation, it's worth taking a look. For devoted students, it can be an awesome tool. Mission MC2 on App #3 correlates with this video lesson. 


Physics Classroom Tutorial, Momentum and Its Conservation Chapter, Lesson 1: Impulse-Momentum Change Theorem

Our Tutorial section always comes through with a common sense explanation of a topic. It makes a great written reference. Many teachers include links to our Tutorial from their course space. This particular page complements our video lesson.
