    Physics! :D
  1. Great job on the truss! Lol there are people in that pic... We should add a "tag your friends" feature to aplusphysics

    The last...

    "I've never done so poorly on so many exams before in my life." I totally agree with you! This course and calc were doozies in terms of exams. Cheers to conquering them both! Happy summer!

    the end

    Haha, I saw your Kerbal creations! It's a good thing that Jebediah regenerates each launch, or else the number one cause of death on Kerbin would be by rocket ;]
  4. Haha I agree! The blog posts were a way to explore the realms of physics, whether it be the possibility of reaching temperatures below 0 Kelvin or simply the physics of a toaster
  5. Right! It's funny to look back and reflect upon how scary integrals were at first. Happy last day! We will miss you, Mr. Fullerton! Thanks for all of the help
  6. yay toast physics! There's also physics in the springs, because they hold potential energy when displaced ***this blog makes me want a slice of toast***
  7. I hope you're able to post it, Charlie! It was painful to watch though ^^;
  8. You're one to talk! "Gravity."
  9. It's too late for the first one, but this one is still unsolved
  10. Nope! Hint: it's one of Jool's moons.
  11. I can't believe it's the last day! I'm going to miss this class so much D:
  12. Hahahaha, this is the most in depth blog post I've ever seen. Well done, Dave!
  13. Hahaha, your daughter is the coolest 3 year old on the planet and I've never even met her.
  14. Soooo, because this is my last blog post for this year ( ), I thought it would be fitting to do a course reflection on the AP-C physics class this year. I thought I'd do it in a "bests-vs-worsts" top 5 format, kind of like you could find on collegeprowler.com when viewing different schools. Top 5 Bests: 5.) Blog Posting [i thought this was really fun! I've never done anything like this before for a class. It brought up interesting physics applications and I thought it was fun to converse with classmates on the site ] 4.) Independent Units [As uncomfortable as I was at first, independent units forced me to manage my time, work harder than usual to learn the topic, and was great preparation for college. I feel like everyone sould experience this kind of a unit before graduating] 3.) Assigned practice problems from the readings [Assigned problems were REALLY helpful. I would've struggled a lot more than I did had I skipped doing the sample problems] 2.) Units with Lecture & book follow-up [This is my favorite way to learn things! The read-then-lecture method] 1.) VIDEOS <3 [Hands down the most helpful resource in Physics] Top 5 Worsts: ...I think this is my biggest beef. I really don't have 5 things to complain about. 1.) Readings weren't assigned [When life gets busy in the middle of the year, especially with a number of APs, sports, etc., readings are the first thing to get cut out for me if they're not assigned. Confession: when the going got tough, I would often skim or not read. I reccomend assigning readings in the future. Kids will complain, but they'll thank you when they see better grades and their AP score.] Overall, this was a successful year. A note to future students: This is by far the hardest AP course I've taken throughout high school. If you want to succeed, you must: A.) Read the textbook and do some practice problems B.) WATCH THE VIDEOS. Whether you're confused or simply want review, these are soooo outrageously helpful. It's like being in class a second time, except in 15 minutes or less instead of 42. Plus, you can skip over any sections that you feel you know solid. C.) REVIEW THE EQUATIONS AND FREE RESPONSE BEFORE THE AP. I went through most of the E&M free response questions as well as both E&M and mechanics equations before the exam. KNOW THE EQUATIONS! I swear equations and key concepts are the majority of the test when it comes to the multiple choice Qs. Any favorite parts of the year? Things you wanted to change? Post below with your opinion! ...I can't believe we only have 1 more day of physics
  15. Yes! Mathgeek15 has a cookie coming her waaaay!
