Bicycle Wheel Demonstration: Practical Uses of Angular Momentum
Students balance a wheel using one of the wooden handles. In this physics lesson plan, students predict what direction the wheel rotates after the teacher lets it go. They explain how this demonstrates angular momentum.
9th - 12th Science
New Review Work, Energy, Power, Momentum
Planning a physics unit on energy can take a lot of work, luckily this instructional presentation is here to help. Covering everything from work and energy to elastic collisions and the conservation of momentum, this comprehensive resource is an excellent supplement to the content presented in physics textbooks.
11th - Higher Ed Math CCSS: Adaptable
THE PHYSICS OF MOVING THINGS (AND NOT A MOMENTUM TOO SOON!)
Students list three examples of momentum found in their local environment; describe the importance of mass and velocity on momentum; and determine what is necessary to produce the greatest amount of momentum within a particular system.
7th - 9th Science
Ring Around the Rosie
Young scholars work together to discover the concept of angular momentum. They participate in experiments in which they test rotation and relate it to an object's mass. They participate in a literacy activity in which they compare mythology to discover why spinning and weaving are common motifs.
5th - 7th Science
Work and Energy
The first activity may not work for your class if you don't have access to an open area of 30 meters and two cars of different masses, but the remaining activities can be used in any physics course. They all involve the investigation of Newton's first law of motion.
9th - 12th Science
Hooke's Law, Vibrations, Mechanical Waves, and Sound
Dangle a spring to experiment with vibration and discover if period is dependent on amplitude. Strum a guitar and adjust the strings to compare displacement and sound. Use a Slinky® and guitar strings on a ring stand to uncover the mystery of resonance.

AP Chemistry Topic 4: Atomic Structure & The Periodic Table, Part A, Examples
Instruct your new chemists about quantum numbers and the associated principles with this illuminating handout. It can be used over and over again as a reference sheet while they practice the concepts taught. This can serve as classroom notes and reinforcement practice.
10th - 12th Science
Physics: Angular Solution of Hydrogen Atom
Students discover the angular solution of hydrogen activity. Depending on the undergraduate course, this activity can illustrate eigenvalue problems, to introduce Shrodinger's equation and particle wave duality, or to introduce numerical solutions for Schrodinger's equation.
