The Art of Approximation in Science and Engineering: How to Whip Out Answers Quickly
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

The purpose of this learning video is to show students how to think more freely about math and science problems. Sometimes getting an approximate answer in a much shorter period of time is well worth the time saved. This video explores techniques for making quick, back-of-the-envelope approximations that are not only surprisingly accurate, but are also illuminating for building intuition in understanding science. This video touches upon 10th-grade level Algebra I and first-year high school physics, but the concepts covered (velocity, distance, mass, etc) are basic enough that science-oriented younger students would understand. If desired, teachers may bring in pendula of various lengths, weights to hang, and a stopwatch to measure period. Examples of in- class exercises for between the video segments include: asking students to estimate 29 x 31 without a calculator or paper and pencil; and asking students how close they can get to a black hole without getting sucked in.

ان الغرض من هذا الفيديو التعليمي هو إظهار الطلاب لكيفية التفكير بحرية أكبر حول مشاكل الرياضيات والعلوم. ان الحصول في بعض الأحيان على إجابة تقريبية في فترة أقصرهو أمر يستحق الوقت الموفر. يستكشف هذا الفيديو تقنيات لصنع خلفيات تقريبية سريعة للمغلف الذي ليس فقط مستغرب من جهة الدقة، ولكنه أيضا منيرا لبناء الحدس في فهم العلم. يقترب هذا الفيديو من مستوى الصف العاشرالخاص بالجبر 1 ومن مستوى الفيزياء للعام الأول الثانوي، ولكن المفاهيم المتضمنة به (السرعة، المسافة، الكتلة، إلخ) هي أساسية بما يكفي لأن يستوعبها طلاب العلوم الأصغر سنا. إذا رغبت، بامكان المدرسين جلب بندول الساعة من مختلف الأطوال , الأوزان لتعليقه, و ساعة وقت لقياس الفترة. تتضمن الأمثلة على التمارين التي تمارس في الفصل فيما بين مقاطع الفيديو: سؤال الطلاب لتقدير 29 × 31 دون آلة حاسبة أو ورقة وقلم رصاص؛ وسؤال الطلاب عن ما مدى امكانية وصولهم الى الثقب الأسود بدون الانزلاق بداخله.

This activity explores the main algorithms that are used as the basis for searching on computers, using different variations on the game of battleships. This activity demonstrates three search methods for finding information in data: linear searching, binary searching and hashing. It also includes an optional introductory activity as well as a video showing a fun demonstration related to the same content.
