Product Description

Web videos that involve physics are fun to watch. They can be even more engaging with the addition of a few well-crafted questions.

This activity engages students with a practical problem. A video shows a backyard water slide enthusiast who slides down a formidable incline that bends into a jump. The enthusiast overshoots the intended landing point. Onlookers burst into laughter. Students work through the physics of why things turned out as they did, even if reasonable precautions were taken.

An understanding of rotational kinetic energy in rolling is required here. Appropriate for AP Physics 1.

Add this to your mix of classroom demonstrations and lab activities to thoroughly teach the topic at hand. I developed this resource for use with my own AP Physics 1 students.
