AP2 Remind Text Messaging Information This uses "Remind.com" to send out text messages to students. Students must sign up. I send about 10 messages a year. Parents will receive text messages from a different system, "Talking Points." No sign up is needed.

Right click the image to download my "Physics Rsource Book" to your computer. This contains most of the problems and activities we will do in class. We will not do all of the problems or activities. But will do a lot of them.

Any teacher or student can download and distribute this pdf file under creative commons 3 copyright.

This is not a comprehensive "textbook." It is to serve as resource to help explain some of the main concepts that are covered in a first year physics class. The cool stuff happens in class with demonstrations, explanations, labs, and activities. It can be used as a review or as a primer before class. This resource contains a lot of animations and movies embedded from YouTube. It is meant to be different from a printed textbook. Hopefully more engaging.
Textbook Chapters are below.
  1. Scientific Notation
  2. Significant Figures
  3. Linearization of Data
  4. Introduction and Review (Kinematics, Projectile Motion, Mechanical Energy Notes.)
