AP Physics 2 Essentials  An APlusPhysics Guide
By FizziksGuy In Books
AP Physics 2 Essentials is an easytoread companion to the AP Physics 2 curriculum, featuring more than 450 workedout problems with full solutions. AP Physics 2 Essentials covers all major topics of the AP Physics 2 course, including fluids, thermal physics, electrostatics, circuits, magnetism, optics, and modern physics.
AP Physics 2 Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master the essential concepts of physics.
This book is designed to assist physics students in their high school AP Physics courses both as a guide throughout the course as well as a review book to assist in endofcourse exam preparation. Its focus is on providing the bare bones, essential concepts necessary for success in the course in a straightforward and easytoread manner, leaving development of indepth problem solving and lab work to the classroom, where it is most effective. In short, this is not intended as a substitute for a standard textbook or course, but rather as an invaluable supplementary resource.
This book includes more than 60 APstyle problems to test your understanding and help prepare you for the AP Physics 2 Exam. Additional supplemental problems are available on the APlusPhysics website.

LAB: Wave Speed with Standing Waves in Springs
By FizziksGuy In Waves
A lab in which students oscillate an extended spring to create standing waves. By measuring the period or frequency of the standing waves, as well as the wavelength, students calculate the speed of the wave using the wave equation.
Ultimate goal of this lab is to have students understand that the type of wave and the medium determine the speed of the wave. The wave equation, holds true and describes a relationship, but the speed of the wave is not determined by adjusting the wavelength or frequency.

BLOG: APlusPhysics Community Blog Starter Assignment
By FizziksGuy In APlusPhysics Guides
Handout and directions for student physics learning blogs on the APlusPhysics Community. I hand this out in the fall each year and have students write a blog post every two weeks as a great way to receive ongoing feedback from the students while also allowing them to practice their transfer skills. As a bonus, many find it fun, especially when they track the number of views the blogs get (view counts over 300 aren't uncommon anymore, and one blog post was even referenced in "The Physics Teacher.")
