Some of television's most popular networks make their home in midtown Atlanta, so Fast Forward goes behind the scenes to find out what makes these networks … work. We learn all about their creative technologies as well as other aspects of multilevel media. Teachable Moments include a description of metadata and an explanation of how understanding gravity is essential for a cartoon animator.
Construct an argument to support the claim that gravitational force affects the motion of an object.
Construct an argument using evidence to support the claim that fields (i.e., magnetic fields, gravitational fields, and electric fields) exist between objects exerting forces on each other even when the objects are not in contact.
Analyze and interpret data to identify the relationship between mass and gravitational force for falling objects.
Evaluate the economic impact of various industries in Georgia including agricultural, entertainment, manufacturing, service, and technology.
Analyze Georgia's role in the national and global economy of the 21st Century, with regard to tourism, Savannah port expansion, and the film industry.
1. If animators need to know gravity to make their work more realistic, what other principles do they need to remember (or what do you see them getting wrong a lot)?
2. Pairing music with situations is something many organizations take very seriously, from sporting events and tv stations to grocery stores. Which leads us to wonder, why do grocery stores play the kind of music they do in the background?
3. Creative technologists are some of the people behind infographics. Why are infographics so useful and where do you think they could be utilized to have an even bigger impact?
Musicologist: an expert in or student of music as an academic subject, as opposed to someone trained in performance or composition
