Frames of Reference : Richard Leacock

The fine cinematography by Abraham Morochnik, and funny narration by University of Toronto professors Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume is a wonderful example of the fun a creative team of filmmakers can have with a subject that other, less imaginative types might find pedestrian. Run time 26 min.Producer Richard LeacockProduction Company Education Development Center, Inc.Sponsor Eric PrestamonAudio/Visual sound, black and white Reviewer:leacevedo - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 12, 2012 Subject: Small correction Hello, I just want to point to a detail in this movie Frames Of Reference that may create confusion. There is a part where one of the characters states that the motion of the Earth relative to the Sun produces even smaller fictitious effects than the motion of the planet around its axis.

Science and Technology of WWII

Teachers, here you will find classroom lesson plans related to the science and technology of WWII. Social studies and history teachers can use these lessons to imbue science and math into their classrooms. Science and math teachers can use these lessons to bring real-world applications to their theories and concepts. Feel free to adapt these lessons to best suit your classroom needs and environment.

The D-Day invasion of June 6, 1944, has been called the climatic battle of World War II. In addition to numerous political and military advisers, Eisenhower was guided in his choice of an invasion time and date by a team of astronomers and meteorologists. The Moon and Tides of D-Day, pt. 1Download PDF version The Phases of the Moon Part I of this exercise dealt with the timing of the invasion and the phases of the moon. Reinventing the Wheel (for Mars)

How do we study the surface of Mars if we can’t go there?

Reinventing the Wheel (for Mars)

Mars is one of our closest neighbors in the solar system and likely the next planet that humans will set foot on. One big reason we’re interested in Mars is because water once flowed there, and may still flow there today. Almost everywhere water is found on Earth, we find life. Mobile Device Models. Open Source Physics. Computational Resources for Teaching The OSP Collection provides curriculum resources that engage students in physics, computation, and computer modeling.

Focus on Physics: The Equilibrium Rule—A Personal Discovery

Burl and Paul on a scaffold. Before college, I worked with master sign painter Burl Grey, who, like me, was passionate about science but didn’t study physics in high school. One day Burl asked which of the two ropes holding up our sign-painting scaffold (Figure 1) experienced more of the “stretching force” called tension. Burl twanged the rope near his end of the scaffold—like a guitar string—and I did the same with mine. Figure 2. Would it affect the tensions, we wondered, if I walked to the middle of the scaffold, toward Burl (Figure 2)? Figure 3. We agreed that my rope’s tension would decrease as I walked toward Burl—but would the decrease be compensated—exactly—by increased tension in Burl’s rope? The equilibrium rule In my first physics class, I learned that things at rest, such as that scaffold, are in mechanical equilibrium. ∑F = Tension1 + Tension2 – 140 pounds – 110 pounds – 100 pounds = 0.
