FRQ Student Guide
Michael Shoenthal
(Work in Progress) - From a 2/28/2019 PGP Post
"The question guide is a work in progress as I haven't added waves or electricity to it yet. Here is what I do with it. I have the kids sit in pairs when they get a free response. I give them 2-4 minutes to to read the prompt. Then I give them 1-2 minutes to select any questions from the first page they think are applicable and jot down ideas or answers to those questions. Then I give each student 30-40 seconds to explain which questions they chose and what they jotted down. The reason I do this is because the biggest struggle my students have is figuring out which physics concepts apply to which question. After that, one student from each group rotates around the room and they discuss again with a new partner. I rotate them a few times until they have heard a number of ideas about the question. Administrators love this because it gets the kids out of their seats and forces them to explain to one another. Then, after they finish the discussions they end up with a final partner. At this point I break out the whiteboards. I give each student a different colored marker and they work together on one large whiteboard. Student A will do half the question in one colored marker and Student B will do the other half in a different colored marker. I do this so I can be sure that each student is contributing equally. They are free to discuss and collaborate together as necessary. Then we randomly pick a few groups to present their solutions and see if we can all agree. "

Dan Hosey
Inspired by AP1 2017-4, The time for two different tracks is calculated. 20 dots are superimposed on an image of the tracks. You drag the dots around. Energy is used to calculate the intial and final velocities, which are then used to compute the time for each interval. The 20 times intervals are then summed to give an approximate time to complete the track.

You can also toggle on a graph of speed vs horizontal position.

This is a Direct Measurement Like video of the flying pig lab. Rulers are in the frame that one can use to get the radius or height of the conical pendulum. The video includes enough footage to time about 40 revolutions.

It can be derived that T=2pisqrt(H/g), where H is the vertical distance from the ceiling to the cm of the pig. Measuring H to be 65cm gives a period of 1.618 seconds. Timing 64.5 seconds/40 rev gives 1.613 seconds.

Equilibrium & Torques I give my students a meter stick, a loop of light string with which to suspend it from a pole stand, a standard mass (200 grams works well) and another loop of string to use in suspending that from the meter stick. The task: determine the mass of the meter stick. I let the kids check their result with a balance scale after they have finished their calculations. Usually, they find the task hard and do much more complicated calculations than are needed!

Adjustable Projectile Motion Problems - This is not a lab. It is a spreadsheet that allows you to create projectile motion problems on the fly with answers. The standard questions such as flight time, range, velocity components at landing etc are included. I have also found it useful in a lab situation where students must predict the landing point of a projectile where the initial velocity and launch angle are known. It serves a a cheat sheet for the instructor. It's also a great way to generate sets of projectile motion problems with answers for extra student practice, for example in a jigsaw type activity.

Projectile Motion Lab - At this point I cannot remember whether I made this lab or not, but I do know I have modified it beyond recognition if its from another source. I think the students appreciate going out to the football field and chucking tennis balls for a few minutes during the day. If they can do this on their own then they really know how to solve projectiles.

Coffee Filter Lab - Brendan Crowley
I do this lab during the first week of school for my AP-C students. It is adapted from the coffee filter lab presented in the AP Lab Guide from the College Board. I typically have the students use Excel to analyze their data, but I have them do it by hand in this lab since it is the first lab
