Abstract

This book is designed to be a quick and easy resource for anyone teaching physics for the first time. Written after extensive research, this book is filled with reliable labs, demos and activities that work well in the classroom. Also included are lesson plans, diagrams, and teacher notes for every activity. The book is not the end--it is just a beginning, a bag of tricks teachers can build upon. Soon you and your students will realize that a day without physics does not exist and that physics is a "phun" adventure. Contents include: (1) Teacher Background Information; (2) Getting Started: Possible First Day Activities; (3) Analysis of Data; (4) Kinematics: Motion in One Dimension; (5) Motion in Two Dimensions and Vectors; (6) Dynamics; (7) Momentum; (8) Universal Gravitation; (9) Centripetal Motion; (10) Energy, Work, and Power; (11) Electrostatics; (12) DC Circuits; (13) Magnetism and Magnetic Fields; (14) Waves and Sound; (15) Optics; and (16) Assessment Ideas and Suggestions.

Article
The constant velocity car, or Tumble Buggy as it is sometimes known, is the perfect vehicle (pun intended) for introducing kinematical concepts and conducting experiments that call for objects that move at a constant speed. This article will revisit a few of the car’s more familiar uses as well as describe some novel applications.
