  Abstract: Camcorders can help students to observe simple circular motions of a bicycle wheel and a simple pendulum. Video analysis will be used to study the circular motions, and allow students to build up concepts of vectors involved in the kinematics of circular motions, such as angular velocity and angular momentum. How to build the mathematical formula for students based on their observation will be discussed.
