Tool # 3.2 Videos to use in class


MythBusters Cell Phone vs. Drunk Driving, part 1 of 3 (6 minutes)


MythBusters Cell Phone vs. Drunk Driving, part 2 of 3 (7 minutes)


MythBusters Cell Phone vs. Drunk Driving, part 3 of 3 (4 minutes)

By selecting parts of MB episodes from YouTube, you cut out all of the other segments in that episode, leaving time for student reflection.  Whole episodes on DVD take an entire class period. This particular episode goes with a Reaction Time lab where students drop, and others catch, a meter stick; knowing freefall equations, distance is converted to time, their reaction time.  Of course, this episode should be mandatory for all young drivers, but we tell them it's for the science, so it doesn't seem like preaching.

Okay, now I'll try copying embed code from nasa.gov.  If it works, this is really worth watching -cool science, for Physics OR Earth and Space Science.

Ahhhh, nuts! It didn't work. I pasted the html code here, but when I switched to compose, it wasn't here.

Here's the link, anyway:  http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html?media_id=144582391
