  1. Throughout my life, one of my greatest interests has been baseball. I've been playing it since I was 4 years old and now, I even play it during every season of the year. As I've gained more knowledge about physics, I've been able to connect physics more to baseball. One thing I can apply, is that when a ball it traveling from the moment it leaves contact with the bat, to when it is caught by the outfielder, a v-t graph would have a line starting very positive and then decreasing at a constant velocity until it stops negatively on the graph below zero, since the ball falling would be the negative direction. Also, if you were to look at the displacement of a pitcher pitching the ball to the batter and the batter hitting the ball right back to the pitcher, in which he catcher it, the displacement would be 0 because the ball ended back where it had started. Furthermore, I'm taking physics because I hope to go into the field of engineering due to interest of math and science, compared to all other subjects in school. What I'm most excited about this year is doing the hands-on labs because I can't stand lectures. Also, what I'm most anxious about this year is finding out whether or not I actually have an interest in physics.
  2. I think that's cool that you play 3 varsity sports and hopefully this year will be as interesting as last year with Mr. Meredith.
  3. Hey Isaac, I think it's cool that you've been wrestling since freshmen year. However, I really think you should come to your senses, and become a Yankees fan.
  4. Hi, my name is Trevor, I'm a junior at IHS, and I would like to tell you about my busy and interesting life. I have a sister, Cailyn, a mother, Kim, and a father, Mike. I have many interests including, baseball, in which I play and practice for year round, being one of my most favorite hobbies on my life. Also, during the winter, I enjoy participating in Ski Club; however I only ski, not snow board. One my other hobbies are camping, in which I do with my close friends or family during the summer. Overall, you can see that my life outside of school is very packed, but cool. However, I can't forget about why I chose to take Physics this year. I chose Physics because I've heard that this science is different from any other, in that it has a little more math and hands on activities involved, which are my strengths in school. However, I also plan to take AP Physics next year because if I choose not to go into the medical field in the future, I would then want to be in the engineering field. As you can see, I have a packed, but athletic life throughout the year, and I hope it continues to be that way. -Trevor Hess
