Good vibrations – A Workshop on Oscillations and Normal Modes

The article “Good vibrations – A Workshop on Oscillations and Normal Modes”, was published in the proceedings of GIREP 2014 as an outcome of the TEMI training activities. In the article, TEMI Italy – Barbieri, Carpineti and Giliberti and two secondary school teachers –  describe some theatrical strategies adopted in a two hour workshop in order to show a number of physics experiments.  The structure develops from harmonic motion to normal modes of oscillations and makes extensive use of video analysis, data logging, slow motions and applet simulations.
