Title: Newton's First Law of Motion
Description:
Khan Academy podcast on Newton's First Law of Motion. Part 1
Standard(s): [S1] PHS (912) 7: Relate velocity, acceleration, and kinetic energy to mass, distance, force, and time. [S1] PHY (912) 3: Explain planetary motion and navigation in space in terms of Kepler's and Newton's laws. [S1] PHY (912) 4: Describe quantitative relationships for velocity, acceleration, force, work, power, potential energy, and kinetic energy.

Title: Lunar Landing
Description:
Can you avoid the boulder field and land safely, just before your fuel runs out, as Neil Armstrong did in 1969? Our version of this classic video game accurately simulates the real motion of the lunar lander with the correct mass, thrust, fuel consumption rate, and lunar gravity. The real lunar lander is very hard to control
Standard(s): [S1] PHS (912) 7: Relate velocity, acceleration, and kinetic energy to mass, distance, force, and time. [S1] PHS (912) 8: Relate the law of conservation of energy to transformations of potential energy, kinetic energy, and thermal energy. [S1] PHY (912) 1: Explain linear, uniform circular, and projectile motions using one and twodimensional vectors. [S1] PHY (912) 2: Define the law of conservation of momentum. [S1] PHY (912) 3: Explain planetary motion and navigation in space in terms of Kepler's and Newton's laws. [S1] PHY (912) 4: Describe quantitative relationships for velocity, acceleration, force, work, power, potential energy, and kinetic energy.

Title: Motion in 2D
Description:
Students will learn about position, velocity, and acceleration vectors. Move the ball with the mouse or let the simulation move the ball in four types of motion.

Title: Motion in 1D
Description:
Explore the forces at work when you try to push a filing cabinet. Create an applied force and see the resulting friction force and total force acting on the cabinet. Charts show the forces, position, velocity, and acceleration vs. time. View a Free Body Diagram of all the forces (including gravitational and normal forces).
