Newton's First Law of Motion
By Kim Ristow
The learner views several animations to study Newton's First Law of Motion, also known as "The Law of Inertia."
Construction of Free-Body Diagrams
In this learning activity you'll explore a step-by-step process to solve simple free-body diagrams. They identify forces acting in the x or y direction in interactive exercises.
Newton's First Law of Motion - Video
Newton's Second Law of Motion - Video
In this learning activity you'll examine force, mass, and acceleration to understand this "Law of Acceleration."
Slope and Intercept on Graphing Calculators
By Ron Keys
The learner reads directions for finding the slope, intercept, and correlation coefficient for a group of ordered pairs using one of eight different scientific calculators.
Newton's Third Law of Motion - Video
In this learning activity you'll examine Newton's Third Law: for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction.
Using Graphs to Explain Motion
By Henry Merrill
In this learning activity you'll observe two vehicles moving across the screen at different rates then describe the motion. Additionally, you'll select the corresponding graphs of distance vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for each vehicle.

Mass Versus Weight
In this learning activity you'll explore the difference between mass and weight.
