Dr. Bill Robertson has an amazing ability to explain physics in an engaging, and understandable manner. He also shows computer simulations available to use for professional development and student learning. Even if you know the content inside out, you will walk away with new ideas to explain physics in an engaging manner.

Good review of force and motion for teachers. It gives a great description of inertia for teachers to use in the classroom, valuable discussion on the use of deceleration, and the value of teaching formulas to the students.

Newton's Second Law is evident to everyone who has tried to move any object at a certain distance. A greater force is required to move a heavier object as compared to a lighter one for a certain distance. Newton's Law has quantified this concept providing us with a mathematical formula to understand it better. The presentation is simple enough to grasp the relationship of the variables. Clear and specific examples were very helpful even for an eager learner.
