Vi and Sal Talk About the Mysteries of Benford's Law
Challenge your students to come up with their own explanation of why this interesting mathematical law works! Sal, accompanied by Vi Hart, demonstrates BenfordÕs Law. They challenge the listeners to see if they can give an intuitive reason for why this law fairly accurately models certain number patterns.

Inverse Square Law
The inverse square law is revealed when your class participates in this activity. They move a graph paper or perfboard square back and forth in a square of light to see how the intensity changes. You will definitely want to add this illuminating activity to your collection of physics demonstrations.

Lab: Kelper's Laws of Planetary Motion
High school astrophysicists perform the classic activity of using a loop of string and two push pins to draw ellipses and calculate eccentricity. They also answer questions and solve problems using Kepler's laws of planetary motion. The worksheet sends learners to consult a "Planet Data Table" in their notes, so you will need to provide individual planet orbit information.

Experiencing Newton's Laws of Motion
Fifth graders study Newton's three laws of motion in a whole group setting using their textbook as a resource. They work in small groups to create a multimedia presentation of one of the laws to present to the class. They design an activity that demonstrates one law, and photographic using a digital camera.

Students give examples of each of Newton's three laws as they occur in everyday experiences. They visually represent and differentiate the difference between a direct proportion and an inverse proportion. Students explain how the gravitational law affects the tides of the earth as they calculate the actual gravitational force between the sun and earth and the moon and earth to conclude which has the stronger influence.
