SL: So these participants are Primary Teachers in the first of four of workshops looking at teaching aspects of Primary Mathematics through French. PP: This was our introductory beginning activity. We wanted students to get up and to move about and we were here introducing some basic vocabulary, ‘forwards’, ‘backwards’, ‘to left and right’, large

Science — perhaps man’s greatest tool in understanding how the world works. But does it lead us to truth? German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was an avid science enthusiast. But, he also recognized that even science has its limitations. See, science touts the ability to explain the world, when according to Nietzsche, it can only describe

I had this skill with mathematical tools, and I played these tools as well as I could just because it was beautiful. Rather in the same way a musician plays a violin: Not expecting to change the world, but just because he loves the instrument. My name is Freeman Dyson, and I’m a professor retired

SucceedSchool.com. Learn to Succeed. Terminal Velocity. Terminal velocity is the maximum velocity a falling object can reache. Friction, usually in the form of air resistance, opposes its weight. We can also get terminal velocities as an object falls through any fluid other than air, with lower terminal velocities for more viscous fluid such as water,

SucceedSchool.com. Learn to Succeed. Kinetic Energy is movement energy and can be calculated as 1/2 times mass times the square of the velocity. KE equals 1/2 m v squared. Because the kinetic energy is proportional to the square of the velocity, tiny changes to the velocity can have a big effect, making fast moving objects

SucceedSchool.com, learn to succeed. Acceleration. The rate of change of velocity of an object is called acceleration. To calculate it we first need to know how much that velocity has changed. Sometimes we represent this as delta v and sometimes as v minus u. They both mean the same thing; subtract the start velocity from

SucceedSchool.com. Learn To Succeed. Forces. A force is a push or a pull which acts upon a mass and is caused by an object with mass. This is usually, though not always, another object. Contact forces are where two objects are touching and include friction, air resistance (which is really a type of friction), tension,
