12:00 AM 
Private Universe Project In Mathematics  "Are You Convinced?"  Proof making is one of the key ideas in mathematics. Looking at teachers and students grappling with the same probability problem, we see how two kinds of proof � proof by cases and proof by induction � naturally grow out of the need to justify and convince others. [G]

1:00 AM 
Science In Focus: Force and Motion  "Bend and Stretch"  We all expect a spring to stretch or compress when a force is applied, but forces can even deform solid objects like the floor or the top of a table. In this workshop, students in a high school classroom explore ideas about tension and normal force. By applying a force to a spring and measuring the distance the spring is stretched, the students calculate the force constant or stretchiness of the spring. Lecture demonstrations using student volunteers help to illustrate that even rigid objects bend when a force is applied. [G]

Primary Sources: Workshops In American History  "The Lowell System: Women in a New Industrial Society"  In the earliest days of American industry, the Boston Manufacturing Company created an innovative, single-location manufacturing enterprise at Lowell that depended on the recruitment of female mill workers.
