2010 Gifted Child Today  
The explorations on Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion are tiered in content according to readiness and tiered in product according to learning styles.  ...  Kepler's Laws are organized into three main thoughts: (a) Law of Ellipses, (b) Law of Equal Areas, and (c) Harmonic Law.  ...

Exploring the explaining quality of physics online explanatory videos

Christoph Kulgemeyer, Cord H Peters
2016 European journal of physics  
(36 YouTube explanatory videos on Kepler's laws and 15 videos on Newton's third law).  ...  In this study, a framework for explaining quality, which has emerged from surveying explaining skills in expert-novice face-to-face dialogues, was used to explore the explaining quality of such videos  ...  At this point, it is important to understand that it is not our objective to find the best explanation among 51 YouTube videos on Kepler's laws and Newton's third law as learning is way too complex a process  ...

It must also explain the fact that some analogies and some interpretations of a given analogy are preferred over others, even when no differences in factual accuracy are at stake.  ...  It was in fact crucial to his derivation of the First and Third Laws. The Third Law appears in the Harnwnice Mandl in 1619. 12 However, Kepler's system was not accepted by his contemporaries.  ...

A historical method approach to teaching Kepler's 2nd law

Wladimir Lyra
2021 Astronomy Education Journal  
Kepler's 2nd law, the law of the areas, is usually taught in passing, between the 1st and the 3rd laws, to be explained "later on" as a consequence of angular momentum conservation.  ...  In doing so, it naturally paves the way to finishing the module with an active learning computational exercise, for instance, to calculate the timing and location of Mars' next opposition.  ...  According to variation theory, for learning to occur, some critical aspects of the object of learning must vary while other aspects remain constant.  ...

Duhem's Analysis of Newtonian Method and the Logical Priority of Physics over Metaphysics

Eduardo Salles de Oliveira Barra, Ricardo Batista Dos Santos
2017 Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science  
It is argued that in General Scholium to the Principia, Newton is not advocating what Duhem suggests in his best-known criticism, but he is proposing something very close to the establishment of a logical  ...  This article offers a discussion of Duhemian analysis of Newton's method in the Principia considering both the traditional response to this analysis (Popper et alii) and the more recent ones (Harper et  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Dr.  ...

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I would like to thank Elizabeth Wrigley-Field and Daniel Schneider for very helpful comments on an earlier draft. BIBLIOGRAPHY  ...  The consequences that Kepler's laws have concerning the (unobserved) instantaneous accelerations of the planets will be crucial in Newton's higher level colligation of Kepler's three laws, according to  ...  But it gets much larger in the Kepler example because it is not merely a circumnavigation that is inferred, but also the exact path (Kepler's first law) and rate of motion (Kepler's area law).  ...

Stefano Gattei
2009 Rethinking Popper  
Abstract Some of Kepler's works seem very different in character.  ...  Nothing is more conducive to progress than criticism of the current situation; nothing is more likely to herald the new than discontent with the old.  ...  Acknowledgments I wish to thank Joseph Agassi, Donald Gillies, Ian Jarvie, Carlo Rovelli and Michael Segre for comments on previous versions of this paper.  ...

Scientific explanation and the troubles with Causal explanations in physics

Andrés Rivadulla
2017 Revista Filosofía UIS  
What I intend to do is to focus on the issue of whether the explanation of Kepler's empirical laws of the planetary motions can be a causal explanation.  ...  Since there exist incompatible gravitational theories, it is impossible for the scientific account of Kepler's law to be a causal explanation of the planetary motions.  ...  model learning from experience.  ...
