Whether I am firing up a leaf blower to demonstrate Bernoulli's equation ; or presenting a Disney style music laser light show to illustrate sound waves, I know I am inspiring America's future scientists and engineers to embrace the world around them.
Over 70% of my students are of Hispanic origin.
Many have been brought to the USA by dedicated parents willing to sacrifice their homeland for a better life for their children in the United States of America. Subsequently, no matter how hard these students may struggle with a new language and culture, they still wholeheartedly embrace the educational opportunities provided. Some of my past students have performed so well on their AP and SAT exams, they've been accepted to the most prestigious colleges in the country. Last year, I had 3, 2 of whom were female, students admitted to MIT, mainly due to their achievements in science, and physics in particular.
As the AP Physics course has been redesigned to incorporate inquiry-based learning, it is my goal is to deepen my students' understanding of basic physical concepts by fostering critical thinking and a hands on approach to science. My students need high quality scientific equipment to carry out experiments on rotation. In particular, rotation motion and force sensors.The materials requested are for my students to carry out labs on rotational dynamics, a topic that is new to the AP Physics course. Without this understanding of rotational dynamics, even the most competent student could not explain the workings of a simple bicycle.
This is a college level introductory physics course; therefore, it is not only imperative, but essential that these students have the best physics experience possible.
Ultimately, I hope my students will be inspired to continue their science journey and keep the USA at the crest of scientific discovery.Read More
