Physics Tutorial

1-D Kinematics The motion of objects in one-dimension are described using word, diagrams, numbers, graphs, and equations. Newton's Laws Newton's three laws of motion are explained and their application to the analysis of the motion of objects in one dimension is discussed. Vectors - Motion and Forces in Two Dimensions Vector principles and operations are introduced and combined with kinematic principles and Newton's laws to describe, explain and analyze the motion of objects in two dimensions. Momentum and Its Conservation The impulse-momentum change theorem and the law of conservation of momentum are introduced, explained and applied to the analysis of collisions of objects. Work, Energy, and Power Concepts of work, kinetic energy and potential energy are discussed; these concepts are combined with the work-energy theorem to provide a convenient means of analyzing an object or system of objects moving between an initial and final state.

Free Diploma in Environmental Science Course Description This free online diploma course is ideal for professionals working in the area of environmental science, for students who wish to pursue a career in environmental science, or for those who simply want to learn more about building a sustainable existence on this planet. Environmental science is the field of science that studies physical, chemical and biological aspects of the environment and determines solutions to environmental problems. Gain thorough knowledge and understanding of environmental science such as understanding the earth's processes, evaluating alternative energy systems, pollution control and mitigation, natural resource management, the importance of global water supplies, and the effects of climate change. To qualify for your official ALISON Diploma, Certificate or PDF you must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments. Manage a Group of Learners

Free Exploring Planet Earth - Its Systems and Resources Online Course Course Description Planet Earth is unique in the Solar System as it has just the right systems and resources to give rise to life. This free online course will review the systems and resources found on Earth such as the flow of energy around the planet, the cycling of matter, the geology of the planet, the Earth's atmosphere and biosphere, groundwater and surface water, and mineral, soil and biological resources. The course reviews the impact humans are having on these systems and resources and will look at air, soil and water pollutants, and how humans manage the land. This course will be of great interest to professionals working in areas related to the environmental sciences or earth sciences, to all teachers of geography and science, and to students who are thinking of a career in the environmental sciences or earth sciences. It should also be of interest to anyone who simply wants to understand better our physical place in the universe which is constantly evolving around us.

Planet Earth 1. The Living Machine Plate tectonics, one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century, is explored at such sites as the erupting Kilauea volcano and the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the submersible craft Alvin. 2. The Blue Planet Perhaps the last great unexplored frontier on earth, the oceans reveal major new revelations as detected by scientists aboard the space shuttle and submerged to the depths of the "middle ocean" to view rare life forms. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Monster Manual - Teaching Kids Genetics | ASU - Ask A Biologist Game to Teach Kids Genetics Monster Manual is a fun way to introduce the fundamentals of genetics to a wide range of grade levels. The interactive game lets students build monsters while learning how information is packaged in complex codes that help to build and maintain living organisms. The center of the fun is a monster maker that students use to decode and build monsters. Introduction Materials For Teachers Monster Manual includes two stories you can use to introduce the basic concepts of genetics. Don't have computers in the classroom? Monster Genome Sheets For classrooms that do not have access to computers and the online Monster Builder, we have created a Monster Genome Generator.
