This site, provided by the Center for Science Education at the University of California Berkeley, contains an activity to experiment with shadows and light sources and to understand the relationship between the angle of illumination and the shadow's length. Inquiry-based science is used to explore u more
The Double Pendulum model displays the motion of a two-part pendulum and its Poincare map. A double pendulum is a simple pendulum with another pendulum attached to its end and the state of this dynamical system is specified by two angles and two angular velocities. Because there is no friction, the more
The Ejs Rocket Car on an Inclined Plane model displays a car on an inclined plane. When the car reaches the bottom of the incline, it can be set to bounce (elastic collision) with the stop attached to the bottom of the incline. The car consists of the car body, two rotating front wheels, and two rot more
The Relativity Metric program displays the effect of relative motion on the spatial and temporal separation of events in special relativity. In the default scenario, by dragging the red circle at the center of the simulation, two events are observed in a stationary reference frame (the Other Frame) more
Created by Leonard Lipkin and David Smith for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purpose of this module is to study a standard model of population growth in a constrained environment. This is one lesson within a larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.
This compendium, created by Dr. Michael P. McLaughlin, describes distributions appropriate for the modeling of random data. The number of distributions, fifty-six, is large, including: continuous distributions (30), symmetric (11) and skewed (19), continuous binary mixtures(17), discrete distributio more
This article, created by Gary Smith of Pomona College, discusses a project-based approach to teaching statistics. The article focuses on the team aspect of learning, it introduces concepts such as: working with data, learning by doing, learning by writing, learning by speaking, and authentic assessm more
Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this lesson, part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook, contains links to web pages which have tables of values for various distributions. More specifically, these distributions consist of: the cumula more
