Riding the Radio Waves
Through this lesson students learn how AM radios work through basic concepts about waves and magnetic fields. Waves are first introduced by establishing the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves, as well as identifying the amplitude and frequency of a given waveform. Students then learn general concepts about magnetic fields, leading into how radio waves are created and transmitted. Several demonstrations can be performed in order to help students better understand these concepts.

The Gravity of the Situation
Its time for a no-holds barred match to see who was right Aristotle or Galileo as we answer the question.. Do heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects? And, of course, what Mr. O video would be complete without something just plain ridiculous like say dropping water balloons off a 20+ foot balcony.

In this case the result of your analysis is an outcome, and using your number skills is part of the process by which you achieve that outcome.

Try to express the outcomes you hope to achieve as clearly and accurately as possible, asking others for help and comments if necessary. To h
