From Riverdeep:

Students can explore forces and the laws that govern forces.

By using Circular orbits, students can explore how increasing orbital distance affects the velocity required to keep a satellite on a circular orbit.

With Data for the Earth, students put satellites in circular orbits around the Earth and record revolution times for various radii.

Students can investigate Kepler's Second Law.

Using Orbiting Jupiter , students manipulate a planet's mass to set the moons in proper orbits and determine the mass of Jupiter.
