Mr. Rzucidlo from Athens GA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need rotation motion sensors, electroscope kit, Newtonian demonstrator, poppers, gyroscope, wave demonstrator set, and other materials to perform experiments in rotational mechanics. Flying plane and cars will be used to investigate circular motion.
My Physics class usually starts with a demo that introduces and engages students in a specific Physics problem or concept. Then through inquiry lab, students investigate and explore the concept. After the exploration, they have a chance to apply learned concepts to solve various physical problems.
I teach in a high school with majority of black and Hispanic students.
In addition, more that 75% of students qualify for free or reduced lunches. However, in most cases, the socioeconomic challenges do not impede students' academic achievements. Most of our students are motivated and eager to take challenges in order to succeed academically. By taking highly rigorous classes like IB (International Baccalaureate) or AP courses, these students set an example for others that it is possible to perform at the high academic level. Our school provides many opportunities for students to enroll into interesting and academically rigorous courses and teachers in our school are dedicated and knowledgeable professionals who strive to motivate and inspire students to perform to their full potential.
The rotation motion sensors, electroscope kit, Newtonian demonstrator, poppers, gyroscope, wave demonstrator set, and other equipment and materials will be used for various laboratory experiments and class demonstrations in Physics classes. Specifically, students will have hands-on experience in learning concepts of motion, acceleration, Newton's Laws of motion, momentum, and conservation of energy. Most importantly, students will be exposed to the state of the art equipment that will engage them in performing experiments and interpreting the results of observation. It will foster the development of critical thinking skills and understanding of the basic physics principles and the ability to apply these principles in the solution of problems. With the benefit of the technology and equipment, students will be able to develop their own inquiry experiments related to their interest, collect precise data, read, understand and interpret physical information, describe and explain sequence of steps in the analysis of a particular physical phenomenon or problem.
The opportunity to use the state of the art equipment will inspire and motivate students to study physics.
This exposure, for many students, will be a trigger to develop greater interest in physics and engineering. Moreover, interesting and engaging Physics classes will attract more students to enroll in high school Physics courses.
