Everyday events make us wonder. Some of these events happen every day, some only once in a while. Some events can easily be investigated, some not. However, each of these events provides us the opportunity to THINK. Why do some things float and other sink? What happens when you drop a golf ball from the top of a tower? What is a Lunar Eclipse, What is a Solar Eclipse? How long do they last, how often do they occur? Using online simulations teachers and students can be Tricked into Thinking about these and other math and science events.
