    BLOG: APlusPhysics Community Blog Starter Assignment

    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.")

    Lab: Rolling Without Slipping (Moment of Inertia by Inquiry)

    Students roll various objects down an inclined plane and use their knowledge of rotational motion to determine the moment of inertia of the objects. Two equally valid paths to the answer make this a great inquiry lab, and you can differentiate easily by having advanced students search for BOTH paths to the answer, verifying both paths give you equivalent solutions.

    Tutorial: Creating Graphs in Excel

    A very brief and simplified tutorial to assist students in getting started with making graphs in Excel. The tutorial does include adding a linear trendline, but does not discuss the importance of understanding how these lines are created/fitted.

    Honors Physics Essentials - Digital Download

    Honors Physics Essentials is an easy-to-read guide to algebra-based introductory physics, featuring more than 500 worked-out problems with full solutions and covering topics such as: kinematics, dynamics, momentum, impulse, gravity, uniform circular motion, rotational kinematics, work, energy, power, electrostatics, circuits, magnetism, microelectronics, waves, sound, optics, thermal physics, fluids, and modern physics.
    This book is designed to assist beginning physics students in their high school and introductory college physics courses as an invaluable supplemental resource in class as well as a review guide for standardized physics assessments such as the SAT Subject Test in Physics, PRAXIS Physics, and CST Physics exams.
    Honors Physics 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.

    Praise for Honors Physics Essentials:
    "This book is thorough and entertaining. The physics concepts are explained clearly enough for anyone to understand." -- Jeff, Physics Teacher.
    "If you are looking for an SAT Physics review book, or a review book for any non-calculus physics test, I'd recommend the Honors Physics Esssentials book. The charts and illustrations helped me organize key information, and I felt like I understood the concepts behind every question on the test." -- Nick, High School Physics Student.
    "I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having a hard time with entry level college physics. Quite frankly, I wish my school would adopt this book as our official text." -- Missy, College Physics Student.

    This is a license for a digital download of the PDF version for use by one person only on up to five electronic devices. This document may not be re-distributed, re-sold, or licensed to any other user.
