2.5 Mind mapping
The focus of this section has been on encouraging you to gather evidence about what qualities, knowledge and skills you have already. This is an important first step, especially if it helps you to realise that you have more than perhaps you realised.

Collisions and Momentum: Bouncing Balls
As a continuation of the theme of potential and kinetic energy, this lesson introduces the concepts of momentum, elastic and inelastic collisions.

L'histoire du cinéma sonore est-elle seulement technique ? Une conférence de Claude Bailblé
Depuis le phonautographe de Léon Scott (1857), nombre d’inventions techniques en cascade (microphone, lampe triode, haut-parleur, modulateur optique…) finissent par se rencontrer en un seul dispositif : le cinéma sonore des années 1930. Commence alors l’exploration des possibilités expressives de la monophonie, que d’autres progrès technologiques (l’enregistrement magnétique, la caméra silencieuse, le montage et mixage multipistes) viennent faciliter.
