Visualize a freshman physics class in which students, working in small groups, are intensely calculating and discussing the solution to a difficult problem involving geometry, trigonometry and parabolic trajectories.  Finally one team is ready to check its collective solution to the problem.  When their calculations prove correct, they break out in cheers and high-fives. This actually happens...
