All core instructional content is delivered through short and focused text, video, animations, and simulations.
- Over 900 activities, videos, and simulations deliver instruction in class or allow students to review on their own.
- Animations proceed step-by-step through each key idea and concept.
- Hundreds of animations illustrate physics in action, allowing anticipation, replaying, and discussion.
- Summary videos encapsulate the key ideas of each topic.
- Professional audio accompanies all instruction providing support for all learners.
- Pause at any time to record data points or rerun using different starting values.
- Simulations encourage collaborative learning and include
—driving a car through a 3D city to experiment with motion in two dimensions
—dragging a test charge into a field and observing the direction and magnitude of force
—recreating part of the Curies’ famous experiment on alpha particles
—analyzing a substance using a mass spectrometer simulation
—exploring advanced topics such as rotational motion and angular momentum
