Using WebAssign to Manage your Lab Sequence
  Location: Grand Ballroom 3
  Date: 1/11/11
  Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  Price: Member: $0.00

  Sponsor: WebAssign
  Leader(s): Mark Santee
  Co-Leader(s): Eric Boyd
  Description: Since 1997, WebAssign has been the online homework system of choice for the introductory physics courses. Through our partnership with every major publisher, WebAssign supports over 100 introductory physics textbooks with precoded, assignable questions and advance learning tools. WebAssign For Your Labs is a simple solution to deliver WebAssign’s same powerful course tools already in use at over 1700 schools, but with your own original lab experiments as the source material. We don’t expect to replace the traditional lab sequence with virtual lab experiments, and you don’t need computer stations in your laboratory. WebAssign For Your Labs works with your existing experiments and lab materials to let you collect and instantly grade student lab results; provide immediate guidance and feedback for students; and standardize grading across all lab sections. Learn how WebAssign can help you increase student preparedness and decrease student costs in the introductory lab sequence.

What Einstein Did Not See
  Location: Grand Ballroom 2
  Date: 1/11/11
  Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00

  Leader(s): Thomas Sills
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: The book, What Einstein Did Not See, presents a paradigm for understanding time and space. Its author, Thomas W. Sills, will demonstrate how three new concepts, timespace, universal time, and universal reference frames, can create a new framework for physical space. In this simple approach, Euclidean geometry describes the complex nature of higher dimensions with basic physics principles. Attendees will learn how time can be redefined as a vector of timespace and a scalar of universal time. The invisible world of four-dimensional space will be examined using four three-dimensional projections from four-dimensional space. With this paradigm the twin trip becomes visible, contraction of the fourth dimension equates to time dilation, and Einstein’s quote, “no empty space exists,” becomes clear in a new way. The first 20 arriving attendees receive a free copy of the book. Available at Amazon.com, or at your local bookstore. Now on YouTube.com. Since 1974 Dr. Sills is an editorial consultant for the production of college physics and astronomy textbooks.
