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.

Charge and Charging Concept Builder

Concept Builders are great learning tools for developing and refining an understanding of a topic. This Concept Builder allows students to explore the manner in which objects become electrostatically charged in terms of protons and electrons.

Minds On Physics the App, Part 4, Mission SE1 in the Static Electricity Module

Minds On Physics is not for the meek-hearted. They are interactive questioning modules that provide a rigorous workout in careful reading, analytical thinking, and conceptual reasoning. Mission SE1 from our Static Electricity module is an perfect complement to this video.

Physics Interactives, Static Electricity Chapter, Charging Simulation

You can learn a lot by playing. And with this simulation, you can see those + and - charges as you play with charged balloons and conductors. But don't play too long ... you probably have some work to do.

Physics Classroom Tutorial, Static Elecricity Chapter

Sometimes you need a written reference to freshen up on what you're learning. And that written reference would be the Tutorial section of our website. The following two pages will be helpful complements to this video:

Structure of the Atom

Neutral and Charged Objects
