    Uh, what possible excuse could there be for using such a stupid picture in the first place

  2. Polish Peter Says:

    Wrong on so many levels:
    gory
    creepy
    gruesome
    misogynistic
    disturbing
    for fifth graders
    obscene
    teaching physics to fifth graders
    stupid
    ….

    They’ll do anything to get kids to study physics…

    That image easily could be part of a 21st century Garden of Earthly Delights.

  5. theprofessor Says:

    Perhaps this is a new approach to teaching physics that avoids the patriarchal, authoritarian methods of the past, following the lead of feeling-based math?

    Farmer Brown is selling two steers at market. Live cattle sell at $162 per hundred pounds, and Farmer Brown’s steers together weigh 2500 lbs.

    Old math question: how much will Farmer Brown receive for his cattle?

    New math question: how do you feel about Farmer Brown’s participation in the exploitation and murder of animals?

    The new physics (?)

    The radius of a blender’s blade is 3 cm. The blade spins at 5000 rpm for 1 minute.

    Old question: how far does one tip of the blade travel?

    New question: explain how the blender symbolizes the grinding domestic oppression of women at the hands of men suffused with rape culture propagated by the resistance of late-capitalist ideology to its inevitable collapse.
