Discovering Friction
With a simple demonstration activity, students are introduced to the concept of friction as a force that impedes motion when two surfaces are in contact. Then, in the Associated Activity (Sliding and Stuttering), they work in teams to use a spring scale to drag an object such as a ceramic coffee cup along a table top or the floor. The spring scale allows them to measure the frictional force that exists between the moving cup and the surface it slides on. By modifying the bottom surface of the cu

2.1 Who are the paraprofessionals?

So who are the paraprofessionals in the UK and, given the relatively recent need for their labour, where have they come from? As we noted earlier, the great majority of paraprofessionals are women. Between 1995 and 2004, The Open University trained some 3775 teaching assistants through its specialist teacher assistant (STA) course. Many of the women were mothers, and only 37 (about 1 per cent) were male. Heather Wakefield (2003), head of local government liaison at UNISON, emphasises the link

Qu’est-ce qui se répète d’un film à l’autre : L'expérience de la parole ?

Comment perçoit -il les évolutions d’une œuvre à l'autre ?

Both Fields at Once?!
This lesson discusses the result of a charge being subject to both electric and magnetic fields at the same time. It covers the Hall effect, velocity selector, and the charge to mass ratio. Given several sample problems, students learn to calculate the Hall Voltage dependent upon the width of the plate, the drift velocity, and the strength of the magnetic field. Then students learn to calculate the velocity selector, represented by the ratio of the magnitude of the fields assuming the strength o
