as tools to interpret equations.
Tools - Use content-specific tools, software and simulations
(e.g., environmental probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments,
Web tools) to support learning and research.
and Decision-Making Tools - Routinely and efficiently use on-line
information resources to meet needs for collaboration, research,
publications, communications, and productivity.

access the list of slides. Open the slide called Velocity
Effects (with text) and read the explanation on how lift varies
with the square of the velocity. Using the information shown at Lift/Velocity
complete the problem designed to demonstrate your ability to solve and
graphically display text equations.
You, or you
and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy or feasibility
of your answers and graphs.
You will demonstrate
the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web to learn
about lift/velocity relationships.
