Abstract

Physics teachers have long used visual media to show how principles of physics are applied to everyday events. Visual presentation seems to motivate the students and improve their understanding of the concepts being taught. The approach taken in most of these presentations has been a qualitative one. Few quantitative visual presentations have been used in instructional settings, particularly in the laboratory, with some notable exceptions (Super-8 Film Series for Project Physics, 1971). The difficulty of working with films and slides limits the amount of quantitative information that can be acquired from them.
