This resource set describes how to implement "direct measurement videos" for active learning in introductory physics and/or physical science classes. These high-resolution short videos feature tools that allow students to easily analyze physical situations: including grids, rulers, frame-counters and other screen overlays for making precise measurements. They allow analysis of quantities such as position and time without requiring additional video analysis software. This material includes best practices for using these videos, a library of videos, example class activities, and a set of model lesson with teaching tips, activity sheets, and answer keys. This material is part of <i>Pedagogy in Action</i>, a library of resources for educators provided by SERC, the Science Education Resource Center. <b>See Related Materials</b> for a link to the portal for the main library site.

This research-based collection features a set of activity-based tutorials and worksheets on waves and optics, developed for introductory physics. It was designed to be implemented in student-centered cooperative learning environments. The tutorials feature thematic workshops across a broad range of topics relating to wave phenomena. <i>Workshop Tutorials</i> were deliberately designed to not be part of the formal assessment procedure, allowing students to openly discuss problems in physics and explore solutions in a stress-free environment. Solutions are provided to students as they leave the class, giving them immediate feedback on their ideas. All materials, including worksheets/solutions and activities, are available in Word and PDF formats. Created by the University of Sydney Physics Education Research group (SUPER) this item is part of a larger collection of activity-based physics tutorials. (less)
