Url: http://www.phy6.org/stargaze/Smechopen.htm
Creator: Stern, David P. (David Peter), 1931-
Publisher: David P. Stern
Description: Created by David P. Stern this site consists of algebra-based material at the high-school level, oriented towards astronomy and spaceflight, which explores Newton's Laws and their application. Concepts are stressed such as vectors and applications, mass and inertia, frames of reference, and clarifying centripetal vs. centrifugal forces. This is part of a wider site "From Stargazers to Starships" which has related lesson plans, glossary, timeline, problems, and Spanish and French translations.
