    Who Am I?

    I love this introductory blog post, and your willingness to keep pushing yourself year after year. I am interested to hear what folks think the other two hardest classes are... my guesses would be Calc BC and AP Music Theory? Just curious. Sounds like you're up for a fantastic and fun year.
  2. I'm with you Ethan... the physics behind curveballs (curving soccer balls, etc.) and the Magnus Effect is soooo cool!!!
  3. Work hard and things have a way of working out... as for the Trolls movie, with two little girls at home, I think I know it by heart (and am certain my girls can sing and dance to all the songs by heart). The little one's preschool graduation included a dance routine to Sunshine in My Pocket.

    About me

    Welcome to AP Physics C! I'm a baseball nut as well, and even had the opportunity to take a course last year on the physics of baseball, taught by the physics department head at SUNY Geneseo, who is also a huge baseball fan. It was fantastic. Thrilled to have you aboard!
  5. Welcome to APC! Thrilled to have you here. Yes, APC is challenging, there's no doubt about it, but much of that 'pain' is offset by the extreme level of independence you're afforded in the class. You're given a roadmap for each unit, a due date, and resources to work toward that goal. How you get there is up to you. Like working in groups? Do it! Like working independently? Do it! Want to take a weekend and just plow through tons of stuff? Fine... Prefer to space things out evenly? It's up to you. It is a lot of work, but I've found that when I know what my ultimate goal is and can see how the work I'm doing pushes me toward it, I feel much more willing to dive in and tackle what needs to be done. Hoping you feel the same at the end of the year!
  6. Glad to have you hear HegelBot. Hoping that half year's worth of resolve can be expanded to a full year's worth of resolve before we hit the halfway point!

    All About Me

    One of the most important things you'll learn this year is that ongoing "I'm struggling with this stuff" feeling... I don't know as it ever truly gets better, but you do get used to it and start to appreciate that even though things feel fuzzy, you have the skills to get through it. Confidence building, that's it!
  8. Glad to have you in the class. I think you'll find that although the workload is significant, the amount of work doesn't seem nearly as "painful" when you have control over it... when you're working toward a goal yourself, and can easily see how that effort pushes you closer toward your goal.
  9. Love this as an introduction to rotational kinematics and centripetal acceleration. Perfect for AP-1!
