Jenda Johnson has started posting an "Animation of the Week" from the
growing collection of video clips and animations that she has
created. See: http://www.iris.edu/about/ENO/aotw/

This week's animations and clips describe the block-and-sandpaper
model and show how it can be used to teach the concept of "elastic
rebound." In addition to geology and tectonics, earthquakes can
provide a useful context for teaching or reviewing many basic physics
concepts, such as sliding and static friction, forms of energy and
conversion from one form to another, and the elastic properties of materials.

Cheers,
John
