THE ANIMATED CHALKBOARD

click for details

These short animations are designed to be used in a classroom setting, but can also be used individually by students to enhance the understanding of basic principles. See the link above for more details.

I have converted all animations to the GIF format (this precludes interaction) that will run in both the Windows and Mac worlds. These are supplied both as raw GIFs for your own applications and in short, self running Power Points with accompanying instruction. The older True Basic, Windows only animations have been discontinued since newer versions of Windows and the current Mac OS have added difficulties to running the old software that can no longer be repaired.

 

 

 

 

 

ENERGY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY COMPLETE COURSE

This is a 14 lesson course based on one I have taught often. Here the target audience is more general so the amount of physics and math has been reduced. The lessons are Office 365 Power Point Shows which should run on most Windows and Mac computers. There are a number of embedded animations included in the set. For those with Windows computers or access to Windows computers the International Energy Simulator is highly recommended as a capstone exercise.(Work is in progress to provide a new capstone exercise to replace the older simulator software.)

The whole course was updated late in 2022.


 

THE PHYSICS OF MOTION

COMPLETE COURSE

This is a semester of material aimed at a general student. There is a considerable amount of Algebra involved, but those segments are mostly optional. The focus is on the conceptual understanding. The course concentrates on motion since this is a common phenomenon and experience for all students. The course examines ideas about motion from Aristotle through Newton to Einstein. The Power Points used include embedded GIF animations on many topics. ThePower Points are self-running and should display on both Windows and Mac machines.

MACINTOSH

Earlier versions of my software were offered for both Windows and Macs but when Apple went to System 10 my Mac versions no longer operated and my development software was never updated. However, both of the full courses and the new Animated Chalkboard software are offered in a Mac friendly format. Converting all the animation sequences into the GIF format and embedding these in Power Point Shows (with appropriate choice of fonts) should allow Mac users to use this newer software.
