Science in Sports: Inquiry-based learning about physical forces via video analysis (iStage 1)


How can you connect sports with classical mechanics? In the teaching unit “Science in Sports” students take videos of various motions, e.g. the flight of a ball or a moving bicycle. The underlying physical laws are later analysed by using the program ‘Tracker’.

This unit is recommended for students age 13 to 19 as prior knowledge in physics and information and communication technology is required. The teaching unit can be adapted to the specific level of knowledge of the students.

Please find the additional material mentioned in the text below. The project is taken from the brochure ‘iStage: ICT in Science Teaching’ from the unit ‘From Bicycle to Space’. You can download it here. The material has been developed by 22 teachers from 15 countries. The project has been supported by SAP.Please find additional material for this teaching unit here.
