Science 8 – My grade 8 students went to playland today. It was another warm and sunny day and an overall good experience. I must admit that I really question the purpose behind this field trip. I’m not sure if it will happen in subsequent years for grade 8’s with the new curriculum.
Physics 11 – Today my physics classes went to PlayLand for their amusement park physics field trip. It was a beauty day. A few of my students managed to get to “The Beast” quickly and avoided the big lineup for it.
One of the things I think my classes have gotten quite good at is taking some minimal instructions and using their physics knowledge, they can apply their understanding to situation with good detail. I’m curious to see what I get back from this assignment.
