Galileo's Law of Falling Bodies - HS Physics - Problem Solving Video Tutorial
- Mpeg-4 Video File
New and motivating video for high school physics students to have problem solving experience in the area of kinematics, the study of motion. This video shows 30 original and carefully designed problems in high quality MP4 video format in the topic: Galileo's Law of Falling Bodies. It can provide about 90 minutes of problem solving practice.
After each exercise is presented to the students as a multiple choice question, the video needs to be paused for about two minutes, to give time to the students to solve the problem on their own. Afterwards, the video will display the correct answer and also the detailed step-by-step solution, enabling the students to examine the work they did and compare it with the one displayed. This is a good opportunity to practice cooperative learning in the classroom.
This video does a great job in keeping the students working diligently to the last problem. It can become another motivating learning tool. Using this physics video in a computer lab or in a digital projector with an entire class, could be a very positive experience, as other teachers have discovered.
We highly recommend the use of the VLC Media Player to play the mp4 video. VLC is an excellent media player, and it is free. In addition, VLC runs on all versions of Windows, from Windows XP SP3 to the last version of Windows 11. The link to download VLC is https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html.
The preview video you can download now about Newton’s Laws in Introduction to Dynamics, shows the format and style of the video exams and tutorials we have created.
