a tool for teaching physics
|Visualize a freshman physics class in
which students, working in small groups, are intensely calculating
and discussing the solution to a difficult problem involving
geometry, trigonometry and parabolic trajectories. Finally one
team is ready to check its collective solution to the problem.
When their calculations prove correct, they break out in cheers and
high-fives. This actually happens...
