5 Inertia
This tutorial is really helpful because it is very easy to understand and provides me with the real world understanding of the first law of motion. I have demonstrated the coin and card trick for my classroom in the past. I have seen the dishes and the tablecloth demo but, I have never tried it. I think I will give it a shot because it will help my students to understand the first half of the law easily.This tutorial really helped me understand inertia. I saw a presenter demonstrating the curved ball track demo for us during the PISA summer workshop. However, at that time I did not understand it. The video clip gave me clear understanding of this concept. The self check questions and the videos helped to broaden my understanding of the law. They cleared some of my misconceptions about inertia.I definitely plan on using this resource in my classroom.

4 Force and motion
This tutorial is excellent. I have taught this law in my class using a Knex cars, washers and ramps. I already had a pretty good understanding of this law but this tutorial have excellent visual aids, hands on activities and self check questions which will be very useful for the students. I have always used the balloon racer activity with the third law of motion but after this tutorial I can try to teach second and third law with the same activity.
