Exploring Alternative Conceptions of Force

Force is a fundamental concept in Newtonian mechanics that teachers and teacher educators are expected to understand well. However, even when teachers and teacher educators are familiar with Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation, they continue to hold several misconceptions about force. This article presents a series of experiments that explore and challenge these alternative conceptions.

Weekend Activity Vibrating Snake

You have read in the class that snakes don't have ears and they only respond to vibrations. Arvind Gupta invites you to make an artificial snake that dances not to your tunes but the wind you blow!

If you think your pen on the table is still, think again

Many of the inanimate objects around you probably seem perfectly still. But look deep into the atomic structure of any of them, and you’ll see a world in constant flux — with stretching, contracting, springing, jittering, drifting atoms everywhere. Ran Tivony describes how and why molecular movement occurs and investigates if it might ever stop.

Train wheels

You can't find a simpler explanation & demonstration of why train wheels are not cylindrical but have a conical taper. Rajkishore send us this video made by Team Arvind Gupta.

Games: Force and Motion

This is a game through which children can learn the concept of force. Apart from learning about 'pull' and 'push', they can also experience that force can change the speed or direction of a moving object.

Forces at work

We use forces all the time to move things, lift things and travel. A force is a push or a pull that makes an object do something. For instance, when you kick a ball, it is the force that you apply while kicking that causes the ball to move. Forces can make things change directions, speed, and shape. Force is one of the most important aspects in the discipline of science and it is essential that we have at least a basic understanding of this concept.

Levitating Pencil ~ Arvind Gupta

The Concept of how magnetic train runs is explained in a very simple manner. It also gives a hint about the ‘perpetual’ motion.
