Direct Measurement Videos

Remember word problems from your high school physics class? For example, students are given a velocity at which a car drives down a road and the length of time it takes, and must find the distance the car will move. Now digital media offers a new and improved “word” problem: direct measurement videos. With this technique, students are given video clips with data to solve the problem instead of a verbal description or drawing and explicitly stated numerical information. At this website, educators will find a library of video problems that teach introductory physics mechanics at the high school or college level. Problems explore forces and motion, rotation, impulse and momentum, energy, waves, sound, light, and other topics. The site also has student activities and tips for teaching with direct measurement videos.
