My students are curious and excited to learn. They can't wait to hear about the real-world applications of what they are studying in physics that week and how it's applicable to their life.
It is continuously amazing to me how they can come up with such great questions and look at new concepts from fresh and unique perspectives.
They are a source of inspiration for me and I can't wait for them to get out into the world and prove their skills and knowledge.
Having a scientific calculator really opens doors for physics problems. Whether it's using trigonometric functions to break vectors into their components or being able to calculate minute electric forces using exponents and scientific notation, a scientific calculator is the perfect tool for an aspiring physicist.
Not only will my students be enabled with the features of a scientific calculator to do their own work, I will teach them the most efficient ways to use the tool so they know exactly how to take advantage of it.
Having this simple yet effective tool available for my students will give them the ability to do problems independently from start to finish!
