In this video from Teaching High School Physical Science, teacher Michael Griffin discusses how he prepares his students for physics day at an amusement park. He describes his goals for the lesson, and in the classroom, reviews the concepts of motion that are relevant to amusement park rides, including roller coasters.

In this video from Teaching High School Physical Science, students in Michael Griffin's physics class investigate the physics of roller coasters, including the concepts of energy, friction, and centripetal and centrifugal forces. Griffin describes how he tries to create a more effective learning environment.

In science, a physical reaction happens when forces like temperature, pressure, and motion change an object’s state of matter.  In this simple science experiment, you will add heat to a bar of Ivory soap and observe the physical changes that happen to it. Then you will repeat the experiment and add heat to different kinds of soap to see if heat affects all soap in the same way.

Just because you don't have a large physics lab doesn't mean you don't have the means to teach large scale Physics lessons.... use virtual labs instead!
