HyperPhysics Concepts

About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network. The bottom bar of each card contains links to major concept maps for divisions of physics, plus a "go back" feature to allow you to retrace the path of an exploration. Part of the intent for this exploration environment is to provide many opportunities for numerical exploration in the form of active formuli and standard problems implemented in Javascript. New content for HyperPhysics will be posted as it is developed. A resource that was initiated as a resource for local high school physics teachers whom I had taught has expanded into an intensively used website worldwide. HyperPhysics

The Virtual Lab Series BioInteractive’s virtual labs have won several awards, including top honors in the Pirelli INTERNETional Award competition, which recognizes the best multimedia products designed to use the Internet to educate about science and technology. Designed in close consultation with educators and scientists, these virtual labs are fully interactive biomedical laboratory simulations and provide students with skills and techniques used in scientific research. BioInteractive’s series of virtual labs allows students to examine heart patients, analyze DNA sequences, probe the nervous system of a leech, use human antibodies to diagnose disease, and measure physical traits of stickleback fish and anole lizards to examine key concepts in evolution.

History of physics "If I have seen further, it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants." ―Isaac Newton.[1] Physics (from Ancient Greek: φύσις physis "nature") is a branch of science that developed out of philosophy, and was thus referred to as natural philosophy until the late 19th century—a term describing a field of study concerned with "the workings of nature". Currently, physics is traditionally defined as the study of matter, energy, and the relation between them.

Evolution of the Universe - GigaPan Time Machine Jump to: From GigaPan Time Machine Direct Cosmological Simulations of the Growth of Black Holes and Galaxies This timelapse shows the distribution of matter in a simulated universe on large scales. The computer simulation was carried out using the cosmological hydrodynamic simulation code P-Gadget on facilities provided by the Moore Foundation in the McWilliams Center for Cosmology at Carnegie Mellon University.

Calculators for Kids! Figuring out fun things like a how old your cat is in human years or how many calories you just burned is possible using the World Wide Web. Calculators are a very important part of life today and the web offers many free activities and games using calculators. Some websites provide you with a free, online calculator while other sites require you to use your own calculator. Introduction to Physics Physics is often described as the study of matter and energy. It is concerned with how matter and energy relate to each other, and how they affect each other over time and through space. Physicists ask the fundamental questions how did the universe begin? how and of what is it made?

Math, Physics, and Engineering Applets Oscillations and Waves Acoustics Signal Processing Electricity and Magnetism: Statics Electrodynamics Science Science Clips Definitely one not to be missed! Fabulous interactive Flash science activities for primary-aged children matched to curriculum requirements throughout the UK. Brilliant for use on interactive whiteboards too. Blackbody Radiation introduction Newton's laws of motion and universal gravitation, the laws of conservation of energy and momentum, the laws of thermodynamics, and Maxwell's equations for electricity and magnetism were all more or less nearly complete at the end of the Nineteenth Century. They describe a universe consisting of bodies moving with clockwork predictability on a stage of absolute space and time. They were used to create the machines that launched two waves of industrial revolution — the first one powered by steam and the second one powered by electric current. They can be used to deliver spacecraft to the ends of the solar system with hyper-pinpoint accuracy.

Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration By Tanner Higgin, Graphite The success and popularity of Minecraft in and out of classrooms is no surprise. It’s one of the best examples of the potential of learning with games because it embraces exploration, discovery, creation, collaboration, and problem-solving while allowing teachers to shepherd play toward any subject area.
