Newton's Laws

This page consists of a lists of activities relating to Newton's Laws. Created by David Willey at the University of Pittsburgh, these activities include a bowling ball pendulum, human air puck, a table cloth and crockery, a sewing hoop, an egg and a sheet and bicycle wheel gyroscope. This is a nice set on interactive lesson plans for physics instructors. Willey provides a brief description of each. Additional links are provided to more interactive lessons for those interested in physics. Instructors should be able to implement many of these ideas into their curriculum.
