A Quote in the Honor of Albert Einstein!

March 14 is a day with a big significance in the scientific and mathematical world. Not only is it Pi Day, but it is also Albert Einstein's birthday. In his honor, I have picked out one of his quotes and am discussing it in the Prezi below. Happy Birthday Einstein, I hope that my analysis meets your expectations!

Albert Einstein's Quote Discussion

And in the honor of Pi day, I post a poem that will indeed say...

Roses are red, violets are blue
Pi is a number that is mighty fine
Practice often until it sticks
Practice when there's nothing else to do
Let no one ignorant of Pi enter this door
Numbers rule the Universe, I'm sure you'll agree!

The Physics of Short Track Speed Skating

Below is the link to my Prezi that demonstrates the Conservation of Momentum with the Winter Olympic Sport of Short Track Speed Skating. In it, you will find information about various aspects of the sport and how the Conservations of Momentum and Energy relate to it. I would like to say that I couldn't have done it without my partner, Chris, so I thank him.


Although I prefer to use the link, you can watch my Prezi below:
