Busy, busy time here at Woodberry. We're approaching trimester exams; today was the last day of class before exam week. Sunday is "consultation day," during which teachers will be in their classroom all afternoon.
My general (non-AP) physics class follows approximately the AP physics B curriculum... except that we spend from September through February on mechanics only. The upcoming exam in that class will consist of seven problems, each one based on an authentic AP physics B problem from the last 20 years.
I've spent the week creating new exam preparation exercises, especially for general physics. I wrote some new exam-style questions based on AP problems; I followed these up with quizzes, and then multiple choice review exercises with the "clickers," a.k.a. classroom response system.
Things are still too hectic for now to post specifics -- baseball tryouts concluded yesterday, and I'm way behind on my grading. But next week I will be able to start posting again. I think these clicker review exercises will be well worth a look.
P.S. In case you're confused, the picture is of Woodberry Forest baseball captain and soon-to-be Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Paul Kronenfeld. And yes, Mr. Kronenfeld IS in fact a physics student.
