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.
Materials:
Long springs
stopwatches
meter sticks

DIAGNOSTIC: Breakdown of January 2007 Regents Physics Exam
By FizziksGuy In Exam Prep
Guide sheet to allow students to break down their performance on the January 2007 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.

Plotting Equipotentials and Electric Fields Lab
By FizziksGuy In Electrostatics
From Barry Hopkins at Severna Park High School
"I use the inexpensive clear plastic storage containers (shoe box size) from the dollar store and a couple of 9 volt batteries. Small pieces of copper wire and aluminum strips are placed into the tubs and water in the various configurations shown on page 3 of the Word document. We eventually print out each group’s results and make copies for everyone, and they use the equipotentials to help them trace out the electric fields.
If you’ve never done this before, you’ll find it’s extremely tedious and timeconsuming, so I usually get them to come after school (for some extra credit) to collect the data, rather than waste valuable class time."
