Giant Wave Model! - 1 views

  •  
    Why hello there, I didn't see you waving! With your new gargantuan wave model, you'll never have to miss a wave again. Transverse, interference, standing waves, nodes, this lovely science giant has got it all. Put it up in a classroom, at a homemade science museum, or to wow your auntie at the next family reunion. Let's model! What: Giant Wave ModelConcepts: waves, transverse waves, interference, nodes, periods, amplitude, particle motionTime to make: ~2 hoursCost: $15 not using wooden balls, another 40 withFun: foreverMaterials:Cord (about 40 ft)Big straws (40 or so)Wooden dowels (we started with 5 x 4' sections of 3/4" dowels)Weights for ends (we used 1.5" craft wood balls)2 Carabiners (optional, good for mounting) Tools:DrillScissorsSome needle tool (to help push string through holes)Onwards! Thank you to noahw and Robb for being excellent wave model models. :)

Interactive educational simulations: Explain 3D - 13 views

  •  
    Explain 3D has simulations explaining all kinds of machines and more. This is a 3D simulation built upon the "unity" platform, so you can move around the object in 3D. If you are teaching engineering, run a STEM lab, or work with physics, you'll want to check out what they've done on this site.

What Does It Mean to Flip a Class? (A Visual Answer) - Flipping Physics - 3 views

  •  
    Just got this note from my friend Jeff Stanzler at U Michigan. This looks very cool and is a website dedicated to flipping physics, algebra, and calculus. Lots of great videos and resources. The note from Jeff to me about this site and his student: " I wanted to share the work of a former student of mine named Jon Palmer, a Physics teacher who has done some wonderfully creative work "flipping" his classroom. He's now devoting himself to making videos for free use by Physics teachers everywhere. Knowing you, I figured you might appreciate his work. Here's an intro video about his vision of the flipped classroom model. Here's a link to his you tube channel, with more goodies."
