  Abstract: Many introductory physics students have problems understanding when they try to learn physics concepts through the knowledge real representation during lab sessions. The research group named Physics and Mathematics in Context from the University of Ciudad, Juarez, Mexico, has developed an instructional approach based on videos to help students to recognize and learn the properties of concepts as forces, Newton's second law, and tension force. These videos are projected during the lab sessions to allow a direct interaction between the object knowledge (physical concepts) and the knowledge subject (the students). These videos show the materials, instruments, procedures, and the corresponding description of the cognitive and physical abilities students demand to develop the labs successfully. This didactic design is based on the theories of mathematical representations and visualization. We will show and describe samples of these videos and their students' attitude effects.
