Roller Coasters

Roller Coasters | Project Based Learning in Science | Scoop.it

Many extreme roller coaster these days have vertical loops. Have you noticed that these loops are never circular? Why is this?

They all, also, seem to have the same similar ‘inverted teardrop’ appearance. Why is this?

Clearly there is the same physics and mathematics involved in their designs. Let’s take a look and see if we can derive a formula to describe their shape.

Why are roller coaster loops not circular?

Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement | The Thinking Stick

Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement | The Thinking Stick | Project Based Learning in Science | Scoop.it

"I’m in love with Flipboard. I have been for awhile now….it’s one of the first apps that gets downloaded on all devices. But lately as I’ve been thinking about the death of textbooks and what might replace them I have started to dig deeper into Flipboard and really think it has a ton of potential to be that core curation body of knowledge for teachers and students."

I complete agree with the points Jeff makes in this blog post.  I've been using the magazine feature of Flipboard since it was released and can agree with all of the recommended uses that Jeff includes in this post.  There are just so many possibilities.

I love this! This is why the arts (typically thought of more highly related to creative thinking) are being seen, more and more, as an integral part of science and math (typically seen as a spot for critical thinking).

Evernote has so many classroomapplications. As a research tool, note-taking platform, and student e-portfolio it is fantastic, but perhaps its most impressive application is it’s ability to collect ongoing qualitative formative assessment that can be accessed from anywhere and shared easily.
