Instructional Ideas

  • Use as an introduction to an experiment that examines Hooke's Law
  • Flip your classroom by assigning the video as homework
Classroom Considerations

  • Assumes an understanding of gravitational potential energy
  • The 19th installment in a series of 49 video lessons

  • The video is short, but it is packed with content and descriptions, making it very efficient
  • Examples are relevant to young scholars, and the video presents them in a clear manner

  • Does not show examples of how to use Hooke's Law to calculate force or extension
