AP Physics: Project Work
Students continued working on their final projects for physics. I had a fun conversation with a student who plays baseball and is planning to analyze hitting a baseball. I’m extremely ignorant about sports, so wanted to make sure there would be enough meat for him to dig into and, as he talked about everything that goes into an effective swing, it quickly became clear he will need to pick some aspects of the swing to focus on.
Earth Science: Plate Tectonics
Students played with PhET’s plate tectonics simulation to reinforce what is going on at plate boundaries. I think if I fleshed out what students are doing in the simulation, I could significantly reduce (or get rid of completely) the notes I did yesterday.
