  Abstract: Not typically part of an undergraduate education in physics, courses on general relativity have been on the rise and in continued demand by respective students. In this article, we wish to share some techniques inspired by and derived from modern gravitational research (holographic duality) that help bring advanced topics in gravity theory into the undergraduate classroom. This serves to satisfy students excitement and curiosities about topics in black hole physics and their properties (mass, orbits, thermodynamics). The techniques included have been developed over several years and implemented in teaching general relativity and gravitation to undergraduates at primarily undergraduate serving institutions and major state universities.
