This topic is broken into units to help in formulating cohesive, effective lessons. Clicking on each unit title will display appropriate activities, lesson plans, or labs. Units are intended to help students understand the interconnectedness of the concepts of conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum underpinning the basis for much of physics. Units are not listed in a prescribed order.

This is a standards-aligned lesson plan for secondary education on the topic of mechanical wave motion. The lesson blends a six-minute video with a classroom activity that uses Slinky springs to model transverse and longitudinal waves. Explicit directions are given to support new or crossover teachers, including background information on wave energy and discussion questions. The resource was developed for use with the video <i>"Making Big Waves"</i>, which may be freely downloaded for classroom use. Teachers' Domain, a network partner of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), is a growing collection of free educational resources compiled by researchers and experienced teachers to promote the use of digital resources in the classroom.

This is an interactive activity for middle school on the fundamentals of waves, adapted from the University of Utah's ASPIRE lab. It features animations of wave motion and a simulation that explores how a wave moves through different mediums. Students can adjust the density of the medium and choose to view longitudinal, transverse, or circular wave motion. The animation on water waves clearly depicts the movement of periodic waves, which can be difficult for learners to visualize. This resource also includes background information, discussion questions, and links to applicable national science education standards. Teachers' Domain is an NSF-funded network partner of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). It is a growing collection of free educational resources compiled by researchers and experienced teachers to promote the use of digital resources in the classroom.

This interactive Flash animation allows students to explore size estimation in one, two and three dimensions. Multiple levels of difficulty allow for progressive skill improvement. In the simplest level, users estimate the number of small line segments that can fit into a larger line segment. Intermediate and advanced levels offer feature games that explore area of rectangles and circles, and volume of spheres and cubes. Related lesson plans and student guides are available for middle school and high school classroom instruction. <i>Editor's Note: When the linear dimensions of an object change by some factor, its area and volume change disproportionately: area in proportion to the square of the factor and volume in proportion to its cube. This concept is the subject of entrenched misconception among many adults. This game-like simulation allows kids to use spatial reasoning, rather than formulas, to construct geometric sense of area and volume.</i> This is part of a larger collection developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET).
