Physics Win
or Physics Fail?

Use your knowledge of physics to put these videos to the test!

Inspired by Rhett Allain's physics explanations at Dot Physics, Dan Meyer's blog series "What Can You Do With This?", and Dan's TEDx plea for a math curriculum makeover, I have been collecting video clips that are prime for my physics students to analyze.

Videos are categorized by topic to help teachers locate videos for the concepts at hand. Several videos are listed under multiple topics. The videos are presented without any further questions other than "Physics win or physics fail?" (real or fake?)

Please leave questions and suggestions for using a video in class under the video's comments section!

If you wish to convert a YouTube video (.flv format) into a format that Logger Pro or Tracker can read for detailed video analysis (like .mov), simply enter the YouTube URL into a file converting website like Zamzar.
