From an exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, this site offers an introduction to Einstein's work that mere mortals can understand. Einstein set the world of physics and cosmology on its head by showing that forces like time and gravity are variable, not constant. The implications of these discoveries let to the creation of entirely new sciences. There is much to learn here. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): scientists (69)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a research tool into the life and mind of Albert Einstein. Use the links and information as an anticipatory set for a unit on gravity, energy, light, and other topics available at this site. Don't forget to use your interactive whiteboard or projector so all students can see and participate.

While we're not experts, Robots.net appears to be a robots site for those who already know what they're doing. Written for those with some engineering expertise, the site offers a collection of articles posted by members, an index of projects (but without much explanation) and a members' area. Those looking for advanced ideas or solutions to robotics problems may well find leads here.

tag(s): engineering (124), gifted (96), robotics (25)

In the Classroom

If you teacher tech ed, gifted, or physics students at an advanced level, this might be just the site they will love to reseacrh and create independent projects.

This is another of the many sites offering Java-based illustrations of mathematical and physical principles. Since these sites typically offer only a handful of simulations, you may need to search through several to find the exact simulation for which you're searching. Math and physics teachers like these because they offer students a chance to test various values and see how functions and principles behave.

Written for adults, this introduction to GPS from Trimble (a GPS manufacturer) explains GPS in more detail than many grownups can swallow. The animations will interest students, and physics teachers will no doubt find ways to translate the information in ways their students can grasp. The explanation itself is a great "problem solving" example.

Here's one worth waiting for! This interactive roller coaster page uses a java applet that lets students adjust the layout of a roller coaster, as well as the forces for gravity, friction, etc. to see how the roller coaster behaves under different circumstances. The measurements are all relative, of course, but the interrelationships are all there, and students can readily draw conclusions about how all these forces are interrelated. Truly neat.

tag(s): friction (12), gravity (46)

In the Classroom

In a computer lab, have students create their own roller coasters at the end of a physics term. The site requires knowledge of acceleration, motion, and the laws of physics and is an excellent way for students to put their new found knowledge to use. For a twist, have students compete in teams to see who can build the scariest, highest, craziest or most creative roller coaster. Or use this site to spur a class discussion as to how physics is used in the real world!

This is an extensive collection of multi-media physics lessons that are both instructional and entertaining. These lessons cover a wide range of topics using Flash and (optionally) short Quicktime movies. There are lots of instructional possibilities here.

tag(s): experiments (71), gravity (46)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free lesson plans, for any unit in a physics class. Search the site to find the appropriate lesson tools, and bring them up on an interactive whiteboard or projector. A lot of the activities can be used for a class activity, or you could also break students up into cooperative learning groups and have them complete them seperately. Make sure to post this site on your teacher web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom for review.
