 A unit designed to show how to use bicycles to teach mathematics and science, with applications to program in a computer class, experiments, and an appendix that discusses approximate numbers and significant digits. https://teachersinstitute.yale.edu/curriculum/guides/1987/6/... The subject of this month's feature column from the American Mathematical Society Online is the solution to the "Three Body Problem" of Newtonian mechanics. The problem deals with three orbiting bodies of equal mass and... http://www.ams.org/publicoutreach/feature-column/fcarc-orbit... This activity from the Exploratorium provides a technique for determining the center of gravity of a long, thin object using only one’s hands. A yard stick, with a piece of clay to displace its center of mass, is placed... https://www.exploratorium.edu/snacks/center-gravity Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this student tutorial illustrates how circular motion principles can be combined with Newton's Second Law to analyze physical situations. The author uses free-body... https://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/circles/U6L2a.cfm Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this seven-part resource is an excellent introduction to the characteristics of projectile motion and how projectiles are described numerically. Through in-depth... https://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/vectors/U3L2a.cfm This website, created by Robert Harris of Iona College's physics department, has links to many interactive applets that are useful to demonstrate physics principles. Topics covered include mechanics, waves, electricity... https://www.ionaphysics.org/lab/Demoes.htm This site, created by Tom Roger of Intuitor.com, is dedicated to describing the poor physics that can be found in many movies. It includes general discussions of common movie mistakes, with simple but thorough... http://www.intuitor.com/moviephysics/ Created by Edward Kluk of Dickinson State University, this web site provides course materials for an introductory mechanics class. Topics covered include: kinematics, forces, energy, and momentum. Each page features a... https://www.cc.gatech.edu/scivis/education/java/kluk/1/m_cop... This lesson plan, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides an approach to teaching circular motion. It covers uniform circular motion, and the relation of its frequency with the peripheral velocity v, the radius... http://www.phy6.org/stargaze/Lcircul.htm
