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 Griff Jones' classic, Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics (YouTube v=yUpiV2I_IRI). I use this as a review of mechanics. The activity then goes on to have students find the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's rating of vehicles they drive or are passengers in. Or aspire to own. The activity finishes with a pair or head-on collision tests showing that vehicle safety regulations have demonstrable, positive effects on vehicle design. Students are very interested in cars, so they find this activity very engaging.

Add this to your mix of classroom demonstrations and lab activities to thoroughly teach the topics at hand.

I developed this resource for use with my own students.
