Physics & Physical Science Demos, Labs, & Projects for High School Teachers

A Great Site by a High School Physics Teacher

Posted on: September 20, 2008

Cherilyn from Colorado told me about a site of lesson plans and lots of downloadable materials authored by Deborah Carder of Arkansas.  Cherilyn has been using this site as a guide for her first year of teaching physics.  I can see why, it’s loaded with great ideas. Deborah has the entire year mapped out from the first to last day of school.  Included as downloadable files are worksheets, lab files and Powerpoint files.

I plan on downloading every single file and going through it with the intent to steal it all.  Before you think poorly of me, Deborah gave me permission to use as much as I like on this site.  I’m an honest thief, I will certainly credit her for all of her hard work.

Thanks to Cherilyn and Deborah.

What’s the status on this site? I’ve been checking on this every other day to see (hopefully) great news. I’m a first year teacher for some inner city HS students in Richmond and would love the help for planning. Thanks! If you like, you can email it to me.

What is the address of the site you are talking about?I teach in Ma.

I’m sorry, it’s listed on the Blogroll on the right. Her site is

This site no longer works. I tried looking for it by actually going through teacherweb and it doesn’t work. Do you have a different site?

I think I still have an email exchange from her. I’ll try to contact her and see what’s going on.

Any word on that site? I’m a new teacher and could use all the help I can get!

What’s New in 2013/2014?

Every year brings a change, this one is no exception.

I will be picking up the sophomore honors Algebra II class to keep them separate from the juniors. This should help accelerate them and put them on a stronger track towards Calculus. Looks like there will be only one section each of Physics and Calculus, but still two of Robotics & Engineering.

Hot topics this year are going to be the Common-Core Standards, Standards-Based Grading (SBG), improving AP Calculus scores, and somehow adding Python, maybe as a club.

Polls in the sidebar

Just a quick poll to help me understand who is stopping by my blog.

Yeah sure, lots from America, but look who else is here…

If you are badly in need of more email or for some reason jonesing for a physics fix, enter your email address so I can bother you with my newest rant on science.
