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

Archive for October 9th, 2008

I know this outside of my usual posting, but when I saw this I just wanted it.  No, I won’t be bidding, it’s a bit out of my price range.

Here’s the eBay link:

On the eBay page, you can see the inside page with the signature.  The starting price is $1000 and they are estimating it will sell for between $2000 and $3000.  I think it’s worth $1000, but I’m a little short on cash this week.

If any of my students are looking for a Christmas present for Mr. Physics, I have the perfect item right here.

Epilog: The link is still live;  the book went for a mere $1000 and there was only one bidder.  I could have been a contender.  Damn.


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.
