I currently teach Chemistry and AP Physics 1 and 2. My students are very diverse in terms of ethnicity and socio-economic background. This diversity is also reflected in student's performance in my classroom. This wide gap in students' learning is one of the challenges I have to address. As a science teacher, I tried to address this challenge by using various strategies and activities. One of them is student collaboration. My students lab working in group and collaborating in projects. It makes them really engaged and efficient in doing their work in class.
All of my students are excited whenever we perform lab experiments in circuits. However, we currently have limited number of ammeter and voltmeter that we can use and they are also very hard to read. Having access to new ammeters and voltmeters with better calibration will help them in a big way. It will make a big difference in doing laboratory experiments in circuits. My students will be able to read the equipment better and hence perform the lab more efficiently.
By donating to our project, you will not only help improving our laboratory equipment but you will help my students in being more engaged in learning physics.
