Day 165: I sort of hate this time of year and a Complex Circuit Assessment

Yeah, I know, a bit hard to believe me when I say I hate this time of year.  It’s not that I don’t like or absolutely need my summer, but there is so much that is happening.  Senior scholarship ceremony, senior award ceremony, senior trip, graduation, final exams, and grading of final exams….  We hardly have time to celebrate all that the physics kids have learned and done.  I realize that this is totally my fault… I need to create ways for this to happen and to communicate it.  Capstone (or end of year ) projects? Just more for me to think about.

Advanced Physics:

Today the students took a complex circuit assessment:

After the assessment, we started WB’ed a set of circuit problems.  It is a nice set that includes some old AP-B tests.

General Physics:

I saw my Mod 4 class, but not Mod 7.  During mods 6 and 7, the Fire Marshal talked to the seniors about fire safety in a dorm room, and during mod 7 the Senior Award Ceremony was held.

With the Mod 4 class, we completed the bulk of the circuit ILD.
