Building The Net Force Particle Model (Part 1)

From “The How” to “The Why”: One of the three projects that the students will complete this year is a custom designed and fabricated rocket. One of the requirements of this project is for the rockets to carry a small solid state altimeter that collects vertical position data. This year I decided to give theContinue reading “Building The Net Force Particle Model (Part 1)”

Building The Net Torque Model – Part 1

A New Model (or Five New Models!) So, since I decided to incorporate AP Physics into the Academy as the singular curricular pathway for all students, I needed to see what models might need to be added (and mostly removed) from the past curriculum. The big change was to remove the study of thermodynamics andContinue reading “Building The Net Torque Model – Part 1”
