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

Archive for March 5th, 2010

Anybody planning on attending the NSTA national conference in Philadelphia on March 18th?  If so, I’d love to meet up for lunch or drinks or something.  I plan on being there on Thursday and Friday, maybe Saturday as well.

And check out the hit counter, the blog has seen 150,000 hits as of today.  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.
