From a simple parlour trick to driving a car, host David Heil learns that Newton's three laws of motion can explain much of the world around him. Your students learn what Newton's laws are, what they have to do with motion, and how they enable us to explain and predict events involving force, mass, and motion.

Concepts: Energy, force, friction, inertia, mass, velocity, acceleration.

Doppler Effect- Why does the pitch of a train whistle change as the train passes by? Host Peggy Knapp explains how sound waves move. She demonstrates how waves can be compressed and expanded by movement. Your students learn what the Doppler effect is, how it is related to waves, and the important characteristics of waves.
