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

Archive for June 2012

REVISED:

I’m not one to reblog.  Once in a while I get an email asking me to post something.  I usually ignore the request or politely tell them, “No thanks.”

This is from one of those spamish emails I get.  I have searched the site and it links mostly to University of Phoenix.  Regardless, ignore the rest of the site if it bothers you, but the article is worth your time.  It’s called the “25 Female STEM Superheroes of Today”, here is the link: (http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/06/25-female-stem-superheroes-today/).”

I know if you asked me to list influential female scientists and engineers, I’d be very hard pressed to name five, let alone twenty-five.  It’s kind of a shame, but it’s nice to know someone is keeping score.


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.
