"Take Chances": Original Song for USC's 2011 Graduating Students
Just as he was finishing his last bit of coursework, USC Thornton School of Music student Derik Nelson was commissioned by USC to write and perform an original song articulating the feelings and experiences of graduating students. The result, "Take Chances" — completed just in time for Commencement 2011 — is an instant USC tradition: a singable and moving anthem for spring on college campuses, written for the thousands of young adults who are about to enter the world and find their way.

Students perform a simple demonstration to see the mechanical advantage of using a pulley, and they identify modern day engineering applications of pulleys. In a hands-on activity, they see how a
Magnetic Fields Matter
This lesson introduces students to the effects of magnetic fields in matter addressing permanent magnets, diamagnetism, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, and magnetization. First students must compare the magnetic field of a solenoid to the magnetic field of a permanent magnet. Students then learn the response of diamagnetic, paramagnetic, and ferromagnetic material to a magnetic field. Now aware of the mechanism causing a solid to respond to a field, students learn how to measure the response by l
