Description

This program covers the important topic of refrigerators in Physics. We begin by discussing how refrigerators are just “heat engines” operated in reverse because they require energy to pump heat away from an object. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that...

Description

Physics is frequently one of the hardest subjects for students to tackle because it is a combination of two of the toughest subjects for most students: Math and Word Problems. What sets this series apart from other physics teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked...

"Shoshana Zuboff, named "the true prophet of the information age" by the Financial Times, has always been ahead of her time. Her seminal book In the Age of the Smart Machine foresaw the consequences of a then-unfolding era of computer technology. Now, three decades later she asks why the once-celebrated miracle of digital is turning into a nightmare. Zuboff tackles the social, political, business, personal, and technological meaning of "surveillance...

"Humanity has reached a critical moment. Our world is unsettled and rapidly changing, and we face existential risks over the next century. Various outcomes--good and bad--are possible. Yet our approach to the future is characterized by short-term thinking, polarizing debates, alarmist rhetoric, and pessimism. In this short, exhilarating book, renowned scientist and bestselling author Martin Rees argues that humanity's prospects depend on our taking...

Description

From the invention of scripts and alphabets to the long misunderstood "talking drums" of Africa, James Gleick tells the story of information technologies that changed the very nature of human consciousness. He also provides portraits of the key figures contributing to the inexorable development of our modern understanding of information, including Charles Babbage, Ada Byron, Samuel Morse, Alan Turing, and Claude Shannon.

"When the technologies we use every day collapse our experiences into 24/7 availability, platforms for personal branding, and products to be monetized, nothing can be quite so radical as . . . doing nothing. Here, Jenny Odell sends up a flare from the heart of Silicon Valley, delivering an action plan to resist capitalist narratives of productivity and techno-determinism, and to become more meaningfully connected in the process"--

Description

This program covers the important topic of traveling sound waves (part 1) in Physics. We begin by discussing how sound waves propagate through the air and other mediums. We discuss the mathematical form of the compression wave and discuss the speed of sound, frequency, and more. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students...

Description

This program covers the important topic of the first law of thermodynamics in Physics. We begin by discussing how this law is derived and how it is applied to practical problems in physics. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section...

Description

This program covers the important topic of transverse waves (part 2) in Physics. We begin by discussing how transverse waves arise in nature and conclude by learning in detail how to write down the mathematical representation of these waves. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual...

### 16) Physics 2 Tutor (Thermodynamics, Oscillations & Waves): Learning By Example. Pendulums and Resonance

Description

This program covers the important topic of Pendulums and Resonance in Physics. We begin by discussing how under the right conditions a pendulum can be made to perfectly transfer energy which is known as resonance. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills...

Description

This program covers the important topic of thermometers and temperature scales in Physics. We begin by discussing the concept of temperature and various ways in which temperature can be measured. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this...

Description

This program covers the important topic of oscillations (part 3) and simple harmonic motion in Physics. We begin by discussing how oscillations arise in nature and how everyday processes such as pendulums lead to simple harmonic motion. We also discuss how this motion can be modeled by a sinusoid. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed...
