...Static Electricity; Electric Charge and Its conservation Static Electricity – amber effect, Electric charge Unlike charges attract, like charges repel. Two types of electric charge: positive and negative (amber). (By Benjamin Franklin) Whenever a certain amount of charge is produced on one object, an equal amount of the opposite type of charge is produced on another object. Net change in the amount of charge produced is zero. Charges are separated, but the sum of the two is zero. Law of conservation of electric charge – the amount of electric charge produced in any process is zero: no net electric charge can be created or destroyed. If one object acquires a positive charge, then an equal amount of negative charge will be found in neighboring areas or objects. Electric Charge in the Atom Atom – tiny but heavy, positively charged nucleus surrounded by one or more negatively charged electrons. Nucleus – contains protons, neutrons. Protons – positive Electrons – negative Neutrons – no net electric charge. All protons and all electrons have exactly the same magnitude of electric charge; but are opposite. Neutral atoms contain equal numbers of protons and electrons. Atom may lose one or more of its electrons or may gain extra electrons, in which case it will have a net positive or negative charged called ion. When an object is neutral, it contains equal amounts of positive and negative charge. Object by rubbing can be explained by the transfer of electrons...

Computerized Definition Reviewer According to Atkinson, once something has been learned, it becomes stored in our memory and to maintain our ability to retrieve what we have learned from memory becomes essential to review. The review of definitions has become common in education and in studying and while using markers to highlight terms in texts of book or notes after hours of leafing through piles of scribbles to find the right pages is a tried and tested way to review terms and their definitions. Printed commercial examination reviewers are available in bookstores. In Lee Morgan’s article “What are the Limitations of Print Media,” he touches on two issues printed material face: they are unchangeable and no motion. It is particularly significant for printed reviewers available in bookstores because while memory involves an “organism’s ability to store information about events in a retrievable format,” and the re-use of printed reviewers promotes memory retrieval, not learning, because printed reviewers are static....

A Thesis "Definition Reviewer"

...through piles of scribbles to find the right pages is a tried and tested way to review terms and their definitions. Printed commercial examination reviewers are available in bookstores. In Lee Morgan’s article “What are the Limitations of Print Media,” he touches on two issues printed material face: they are unchangeable and no motion. It is particularly significant for printed reviewers available in bookstores because while memory involves an “organism’s ability to store information about events in a retrievable format,” and the re-use of printed reviewers promotes memory retrieval, not learning, because printed reviewers are static. Another significant finding is that the critical learning stages are those before the age of eight for two reasons: first, children under the age of eight learn 200% faster than adults, and second, thinking patterns become habitual after age eight, and difficult to change. Information Technology has influenced society in ways that have made assessing information so much easier (Hodge, 2010). Computers help people perform tasks easier and faster. Technology also has a systematic and organized way of keeping data records, computing, and accomplishing a lot of transactions and reports It is after the consideration of all these that the researchers came upon the idea of developing a definition reviewer Software, designed for first to third grade students of Master’s Vineyard Academy(MVA). They further considered that in learning, abstract......
