https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=705832
<p>This is an interactive PowerPoint presentation to be used in Kiosk mode with students. It is intended to be a stand-alone resource that Student will be able to navigate through on their own. It covers a basic introduction of the concept of force along with an introduction to Newton's Laws. It would be appropriate for a physical science or conceptual physics course. The presentation includes audio files for most slides so that students completing the lesson on their own have the opportunity to have the slides read to them. Each section includes instructional slides, "check for understanding" questions along with real-time feedback and links to resources for students. There is also an ineractive exploration element using a link to a PhET applet.</p>Sat, 03 Nov 2012 02:54:54 GMTElizabeth KupieckiConservation of Energy
