#### LAB: Rolling Without Slipping

Objective: Moment of Inertia by Inquiry

Description: Students experimentally determine the moment of inertia of six different objects (2 solid spheres, 2 solid discs, and 2 rings) by rolling them down a ramp. They then compare their experimentally determined values to the theoretical values which they calculate themselves.

Equipment:
2 solid spheres
2 solid discs
2 rings
(note that these items can be purchased as a group set through lab supply vendors, or you may create your own)
stopwatch
meter stick
protractor
string

Procedure:
Students develop their own procedures for this lab. Note that the students can take one of two paths to determining the moment of inertia of the rolling objects... both result in the same values if derived carefully, and each is a good reinforcement of key concepts students have been studying up to this point in the class.

#### SimuLAB: Make Your Own Capacitor SimuLAB

Students are given online simulation tools at PHET Colorado as well as a set of key learning objectives. In teams, they are then tasked with using these resources to build a lab for future students which has students performing experiments using the simulations to better understand the learning objectives.

PHET Simulations Required:
Capacitor Simulation
AC/DC Circuit Construction Kit

My students do some pretty neat stuff when given such open-ended assignments, and the quality of the work is often times at a level where, with minimal modification, it could be handed out to another class as an actual lab learning activity.

#### DIAGNOSTIC: Breakdown of January 2006 Regents Physics Exam

Guide sheet to allow students to break down their performance on the January 2006 Regents Physics Exam by unit. Upon completing and scoring the exam, students fill out the diagnostic guide to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Once these areas have been identified, students may focus on areas with the greatest opportunity for improvement in order to differentiate their review time to their individual needs.

#### WS: Circuits Problem Dissection

For each problem, students are asked to begin by highlighting what information they are given, and what they are asked to find. Goal of the exercise is to have students begin to recognize start and end points of a problem, then search for pathways from the start to the end.
