Motion graphs: displacement, velocity and acceleration
Motion graphs: displacement, velocity and acceleration Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

A motion simulator that helps pupils understand the relationship between real-world motion and how it is represented using displacement-time, velocity-time and acceleration-time graphs.

The displacement-time graph game
The displacement-time graph game Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

Believe it or not, we've managed to turn learning about displacement-time graphs into a game (and a great game it is too!). This software is also a great teaching aid when describing the relationship between real-world motion and its graphical representation.

The equations of motion: solver
The equations of motion: solver Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

There are four equations of motion that can be used to solve problems whenever an object moves in a straight line with a constant acceleration. This equation solver will show you how to use these equations by taking you through a simple five step process.

In this game you must use your knowledge of moments to balance the seesaw and save the princess. What terrible fate will befall her if you fail?

Representing vectors
Representing vectors Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

This gentle introduction to vectors helps your pupils understand what a vector is and how to represent them. The resource contains a set of tasks that can be undertaken at the interactive whiteboard.

Vectors and scalars
Vectors and scalars Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

An activity to teach pupils to identify scalar and vector quantities. Pupils are given a physical quantity and its definition which they must categorise as a scalar or vector. This resource also contains a word-gap exercise.

Vector addition
Vector addition Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

This powerful application allows the teacher to illustrate vector addition in several ways. The addition can be graphically visualised using free vectors, a common origin configuration, the parallelogram construct or vector chains. The addition can also be analysed numerically by a consideration of the horizontal and vertical components.

Vector chains
Vector chains Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

This simple resource visually illustrates how the sum of several vectors can be found by arranging them as a chain.

Pulleys
Pulleys Tablet enabled - iPad | Android | more...

View the details of a series of pulley systems providing different levels of mechanical advantage. A great resource for introducing pupils to the concepts of work and conservation of energy.
