Light in Slow Motion

Posted on: August 26, 2012


My father just sent me this TED Talk.  He doesn’t read my blog and didn’t know about the other TED Talks I posted.  This one is a little different, Ramesh Raskar from MIT has developed a camera that can slow motion down to the point of being able to see a pulse of light travel.  You just have to see it to believe it.

And in case you aren’t seeing the embedded video:

Scott,

This sounds truly worth seeing, unfortunately none of the URL links take us to the site; they simply show your blog in different formats. can you repost the TED link for us? Thanks!

Allan

I posted the link under the video. Are you having the same problem with the previous post? Nobody else mentioned that it wasn’t working.

This is Awesome!! I’m a college student to become a high school science teacher– I love your blog!

Bri, I’d love to have some contributions as you pick up ideas or tricks from your instructors. There is lots for me to learn.

I will be glad to pass along anything interesting I happen to come across! I’m from a very small town in Arkansas but am continuously amazed at the creativity of teachers in this area. I look forward to sharing ideas.

What’s New in 2013/2014?

Every year brings a change, this one is no exception.

I will be picking up the sophomore honors Algebra II class to keep them separate from the juniors. This should help accelerate them and put them on a stronger track towards Calculus. Looks like there will be only one section each of Physics and Calculus, but still two of Robotics & Engineering.

Hot topics this year are going to be the Common-Core Standards, Standards-Based Grading (SBG), improving AP Calculus scores, and somehow adding Python, maybe as a club.

Polls in the sidebar

Just a quick poll to help me understand who is stopping by my blog.

Yeah sure, lots from America, but look who else is here…

If you are badly in need of more email or for some reason jonesing for a physics fix, enter your email address so I can bother you with my newest rant on science.
