 WFU Physics Demo Video: Boomerang (Outside and Inside) This video demonstrates the operation of a boomerang. A boomerang is shaped such that air passing over it will cause it to lift and turn. If thrown correctly, it will return to the thrower. The video is part of a collection of demonstration videos put together by the physics department at Wake Forest University. http://physics.wfu.edu/demolabs/demos/2/2c/2C2055.html
 Aerodynamics: The Mathematical Implications This unit from the Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute is "an attempt to develop a unit in mathematics that will provide topics for students interested in the aviation trades." The unit can be used to cover all areas of mathematics from areas in geometry sectors to basic addition of fraction and decimal numbers. These general math concepts will be introduced using aerodynamics and aviation... http://www.yale.edu/ynhti/curriculum/guides/1988/6/88.06.07....
 Historical Developments of the Aircraft Industry with Mathematical Applications A unit written as an enrichment lesson for students in basic geometry or geometry; also, the section on spherical geometry can be used in an Algebra II Trigonometry class as an extension or an introduction to spherical geometry. It includes an introduction to graph theory. http://www.yale.edu/ynhti/curriculum/guides/1990/7/90.07.10....
 Airplane Mathematics A unit designed to teach the history of aerodynamics, to develop some fundamental mathematical skills relating to the field of aviation, and to study the history of flight, including the first transatlantic flight, the Wright Brothers, and supersonic flight (old and new). Math criteria include the computation, concepts, and problem solving of velocity; acceleration, speed, distance traveled, and... http://www.yale.edu/ynhti/curriculum/guides/1988/6/88.06.11....
 Problem Solving through Aviation A unit that focuses on problem solving through real life situations that involveaviation. In spite of a variety of shapes and sizes all airplanes fly in the same way, and the problems of the aviation industry are basically the same. Some of the problems in this unit deal with the tests that have already been in the United States by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Federal... http://www.yale.edu/ynhti/curriculum/guides/1990/7/90.07.02....
