Einstein's theory of relativity actually spans two theories: his special theory of relativity, and his general theory of relativity. The earlier of the two theories, special relativity, takes for its basis the idea that the speed of light appears to be the same no matter in what context one observes or measures it. For this idea to hold true for observers moving at very fast speeds, these observers must necessarily experience space and time differently than stationary observers do. Thus, to moving observers, time can be measured to pass more slowly, and the lengths of objects can appear to be reduced in comparison to what a stationary observer experiences. In other words, observations of space and time are relative to an observer's frame of reference.

The theory of special relativity allowed Einstein to come up with his famous equation, which equates mass and energy. It also provided the basis for Minkowski to combine the concepts of space and time into the concept of a space-time continuum. However, special relativity did not account for the ways certain concepts like gravity, motion, and forces interacted with the concept of space-time. General relativity integrated these concepts with the tenets of special relativity to provide a more accurate picture of the universe. Einstein's equations outline the relationship between the geometry of space-time and the properties of matter, and account for how matter warps space-time and how space-time influences the motion of matter. Numerous observed phenomena have provided evidence supporting the theory of general relativity, including the phenomenon of redshift, slight anomalies in the orbit of Mercury, and other cosmological phenomena. In addition, global positioning satellite systems require extremely accurate measurements of time and would not work if the principles of general relativity were not taken into account.

The student and I worked on his biology study guide for his final next week. We focused on the scientific method, cell structure/parts/processes, and basic chemistry. He was very thorough and did a good job! I do recommend lots of focused studying over the weekend.

The student and I reviewed for his biology final. We discussed the three theories of DNA replication. I explained the basics of glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and electron transport chain and the differences between fermentation and cellular respiration. He and I also talked about prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

During our session today, the student and I worked on completing a review sheet that his teacher had given him for his final. This review sheet was comprehensive, covering the vast swath of material that makes up the 9th grade biology curriculum. Because he had not gotten much time to work on the sheet, we started near the beginning and worked forward. Overall, I was pleased to see that he was now retaining some of the material that we had covered in our previous sessions. For instance, I was pleasantly surprised to find that he remembered and could articulate the difference between an autotroph and a heterotroph. Overall, we made good progress.

We went over some practice questions today in preparation for the student's quiz tomorrow. We covered food and nutrition, the digestive system, and the excretory system. He did well with the multiple choice questions and seemed to remember most of the material from the book. He was struggling a bit with expanding his answers for short-response questions. Although I could see that the way he answers is on the right track, he might not be providing detailed enough explanations for his teacher's liking.

We discussed replication, transcription, translation, and the eukaryota cell. We also looked over the student's notes and tried to figure out where her weaknesses are. We spent the second part reviewing calculus, specifically, logarithms.
