What on Earth is Spin?

For Students 7th - 12th Standards
If your head is spinning when you consider teaching the action of spinning, this video is sure to settle things. First, the motion is defined and described. The conservation of angular momentum, the Coriolis effect, and the air pressure...

Ring Around the Rosie

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Young scholars study the law of conservation of momentum and how mass and radius relates to it.  In this momentum lesson students know where axes are on their bodies and what type of rotation they have.

Centripetal Force

For Teachers 4th - 6th
In order to investigate cetntripetal force and angular momentum, youngsters compare the motion of erasers hung from a string. It is not clear what type of Amish toy is needed in the warm up activity, so you may not be able to use it. The...

The Spin Doctor Is In

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are given the difintion of translational motion, which is the object in motion stays in motion. If you are in a car and the car stops, you keep moving. They then discuss rotational motion, which is a spinning object continues to...

The Spin Doctor Is In

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are introduced to rotational inertia with some example of objects that rotates: Throw a Frisbee acroos the field and it rotates as it moves. The same is true for a baseball and a football. The two motions, translational and...
