My Students

Help my students be creative and inquisitive! When they get to work on labs and projects instead of worksheets, they get to indulge their imagination and curiosity, but we need materials to make that happen. My students do are constantly collecting and analyzing data with computers, but having a print-out as a permanent record and an accomplishment adds an extra layer for their learning.

These students are juniors and seniors in an urban, high-poverty public high school, taking physics.

These classes are composed of a broad range of students of many ability levels. There are roughly as many girls and boys, which is unusual in physics, and the ethnic mix reflects the school. Many of these students haven't had much opportunity to do labs or to work on complex, technical projects before. They're smart but need more than a typical lecture and worksheet lesson to keep them engaged and learning. Labs and projects will help all of them explore and master the topics in physics that they find the most intriguing.

My Project

These materials will help my students by letting us continue to do some of the projects that I've posted before. Your support will let me continue to provide my students with the challenging labs and projects that have helped my students learn in the past, and just maybe let us try out some new ideas!

My students need things to put their hands on for "hands-on" learning activities.

Students will use the test leads and digital multi-meters for testing Ohm's Law, combinations of capacitors and resistors, and the relationship between magnetism and electric currents. We'll use the speakers to drive waves on strings so students can see (literally) the relationship between the frequency and length of a wave, and the link between the theoretical description of waves and the music they listen to.
