Introduction to "Stargazers" (for Teachers) All these files (except for solutions to problems) can also be found on the world-wide web, and this note applies equally to those accessing them via the web. The files can be reached from If you have the disk and mount it on your computer, or copy it (about 45 Mb), you can access all of the material directly, using a web browser in an "off-line" mode with no internet link (i.e. by commanding"open file" rather that "open location"). Capital letters in any address must stay capitalized, and the above file is named simply "readfirst.htm". If your link is the internet, you can download everything in condensed format ("zipped" or ""tarred and zipped"), following instructions in "prospect.htm". All files were created by Dr. Feel free to copy this material onto your school computers and distribute it by disk to students and to other teachers, non-commercially. Additional web pages (also described further below here) support this material.

Wall of Films! | Over 500 Social Change Documentaries on 1 Page Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries above. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves. Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover. From all the documentaries above, it's evident that our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day - all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible. But most of all, we need to see the promise of the alternatives - we need to be able to imagine new exciting ways that people could live, better than anything that the old paradigm could ever dream of providing. So take this library of films and use it.

Physics Tutorial 1-D Kinematics The motion of objects in one-dimension are described using word, diagrams, numbers, graphs, and equations. Newton's Laws Newton's three laws of motion are explained and their application to the analysis of the motion of objects in one dimension is discussed. Vectors - Motion and Forces in Two Dimensions Vector principles and operations are introduced and combined with kinematic principles and Newton's laws to describe, explain and analyze the motion of objects in two dimensions. Momentum and Its Conservation The impulse-momentum change theorem and the law of conservation of momentum are introduced, explained and applied to the analysis of collisions of objects. Work, Energy, and Power Concepts of work, kinetic energy and potential energy are discussed; these concepts are combined with the work-energy theorem to provide a convenient means of analyzing an object or system of objects moving between an initial and final state. Circular Motion and Satellite Motion Thermal Physics Waves

Movie Sheets - Teacher Submitted Movie Worksheets for the Classroom Understanding Evolution The bacteria that changed the world - May, 2017 The make-up of Earth's atmosphere, once the domain of Earth science textbooks, has become an increasingly "hot" news topic in recent decades, as we struggle to curb global warming by limiting the carbon dioxide that human activity produces. While the changes that humanity has wrought on the planet are dramatic, this isn’t the first time that one species has changed Earth’s atmosphere. Three billion years ago, there was no free oxygen in the atmosphere at all. Read the rest of the story here | See the Evo in the News archive

The Royal Institution Create a wine glass orchestra in your kitchen and explore how sound is caused by vibrations. For more ideas, and to download an info sheet click here: Marieke and Tilly experiment with making music and doing science experiments at home. Using wine glasses filled with different volumes of liquids, they investigate how sounds are caused by vibrations and how changing the volume of liquid affects the pitch of the note. Simply rubbing your fingers around the rim of a glass can make an amazing noise. Explore sound, music and science in this fun activity to do with kids. With enough glasses and little bit of practice you might be able to play 'Ode to Joy' like Marieke! ExpeRimental, brought to you by the Royal Institution of Great Britain, is a series of free short films that make it fun, easy and cheap to do science at home with children aged 4 to 10.

Everything Dies, Right? But Does Everything Have To Die? Here's A Surprise : Krulwich Wonders... A puzzlement. Why, I wonder, are both these things true? There is an animal, a wee little thing, the size of a poppy seed, that lives in lakes and rivers and eats whatever flows through it; it's called a gastrotrich. It has an extremely short life. Hello, Goodbye, I'm Dead It hatches. Sad, no? It's a hydra. So we made one. I have so many questions. My friend Carl Zimmer introduced me to the gastrotrich in his introductory essay to Rachel Sussman's book, The Oldest Living Things in the World.
