Off to a good start with this site. I'm interested to see how the students respond to this style of Physics lab. Keep us posted. I may have to borrow your Kepler lab later on in the year.
My sincere thanks for posting the link to your students' lab report site.For the third year in a row, my (smaller) school has not had the numbers tomake a class of AP Physics, but I'm ever hopeful. I do teach a good crowdof fairly dedicated Pre-AP students each year, so maybe next year...Their one shortcoming is their short and lazy lab reporting, so I'm lookingforward to showing them an option that steps up to the next level.Jean GiffordPhysics I/Pre-AP PhysicsTaylor High SchoolTaylor, Texas
Dear Ms. Geddes:
I am so pleased that you are using my article on the I35 bridge collapse as part of your AP Physics course. You did a beautiful job with the material. Please let me know how your students react to the material, if you have time to get back to me. Also, you might look at some of my other papers as possible laboratory exercises--in particular, my articles on automobile accident reconstruction, solar cells, and the analysis of the flight of birds.
Hey Mrs. Geddes!
Today was the first day of GT classes, and I had my Physics 2 class and lab. For the lab we did VPython programming, and I just wanted to let you know that I had to help my two partners figure out how to create an arrow and its direction. I wanted to tell you, mostly because I feel like I may be more prepared for this class--at least the lab--than some of the students who are in their 2nd or 3rd year here. I hope everything at school is going well!
Have a great day!
Good post dude
Yeah I used some of the lab reports an got an A thanks a lot.
So glad the website was helpful, and congratulations on your A!
