APC and AP2 Summer Work

Until we finally get highly needed lab periods like all other schools have in AP1, AP2 and APC Physics to get through all the material, you all will have to compete some summer work. The work will be the same for both classes, as the first unit is pretty much the same. APC will learn a little more when we come back.

AP Physics C

I know this is a little late, but I decided to force all of you and me to let our minds take a little break and remember to have fun during the summer. I also did not want to have you forget everything by the time September rolls around. I did not include too much summer work, just a little bit of a math check up and a hopefully not too difficult lab activity that you can do with stuff around your house to get your brain back into a science mind set. Please print out and complete the math stuff by hand and turn it in the first day I see you. Please do the lab activity with one or two partners, they could be your class mates if you know any, or they could be any friends or family member or whoever. This will be due turning in through Google Classroom by 11pm Thursday AFTER school starts.

If you run into any issues, I will be finally checking my email (I took a mental health break from that too) and I will be in the high school a few days (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) at various times the week from August 5 to 9. If you wanted to stop by for some crazy reason or to print something, please email me at mister.maloney@gmail.com and we can schedule a meeting. Otherwise, I will see you in about a month.

Summer Lab Activity of Rolling Something Down a Hill

AP Physics 2

I know this is a little late, but I decided to force all of you and me to let our minds take a little break and remember to have fun during the summer. I also did not want to have you forget everything by the time September rolls around. You work is just the first unit we do on Fluid Mechanics, which is like Forces and Energy but for water instead of solid things. It entails watching some short videos, reading a bit in your online text book and then working out some problems. The solutions to the problems are also provided so you can check your work as you go. The password to the sample problems will be provided in google classroom, or you can email me.

This will all be due to be checked for completeness (notes and problems) the first class we have. You will also be doing a couple lab activities in groups based on the problems the first class. You will then have either a take home test or inclass test due after Labor Day, we will take a class vote.

If you run into any issues, I will be finally checking my email (I took a mental health break from that too) and I will be in the high school a few days (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) at various times the week from August 5 to 9. If you wanted to stop by for some crazy reason or to print something, please email me at mister.maloney@gmail.com and we can schedule a meeting. Otherwise, I will see you in about a month.

  • Read through Chapter 11-12 in the OpenStax book
  • Watch the videos from one of the sources below (BU, DocPhysics, APlusPhysics, BozmanPhysics), you can try a couple and pick the presenter that works best for you. I may put up other presenters at some point. My videos are mainly problem solving videos.
  • Complete the 2 Column notes based on the reading, videos, my Lecture Notes and Unit Summary and extra notes if necessary to be turned in on paper.
  • Complete Example and Sample Problem Packets (4 total packets starred* below) to be turned in on paper.

Chapter 13 in Knight Book // *Chapter 11-12 in OpenStax Online book

Includes Pressure, Pascal's Principle, Buoyancy, Continuity Equation, Bernoulli's Equation

Unit Objectives (what you should end up knowing)

Class Notes

Lecture Videos (1,2 should watch when assigned)

From BU

or ... from DocPhysics

or from Me (mostly sample problem solutions)

or Quick Overview from CrashCourse

Unit Progression (*should be turned in at test time)


Summer Work Ideas

  • Watch into to Motion Video by me
  • do some type of constant motion and accelerated motion lab, preferably with real materials (hill, ball, stopwatch, ruler/tape measure) or if this is not possible use a simulation.
  • Hills can be: slanted table in house, driveway, really straight piece of wood that is long, pvc pipe with marble that fits inside*may be hard to see,
  • const speed: roll marble down ruler across table
  • make sure to add predictions ... maybe make a google form or classroom type thing to fill in as they go???
  • have them take data, graph it, look at the shape of the graph and predict the relationship, linearize it if necessary based on their guess (have different options for linearizing based on their guess that are videos) and see if they can get information about the slope.
  • make videos to walk them through all of this.
  • have ap kids help me maybe.
  • have them maybe do a video analysis lab in loggerpro as well ... have them verify they can install loggerpro before they leave.
