Richard  K. ...One of the projects I've developed is the "Tightrope Snowman": a balancing snowman made from Styrofoam and screwdrivers, which I use in teaching the principle of center of gravity. Another project is a bull's-eye game using a mirror to teach the principle of the angle of reflection.

Gillis W. ...My marks and grades are the best for those subjects but I can also help with history/government, and English/language arts.

Learning isn't linear or exponential.
