Laboratory work is an essential part of an AP Physics course. The links posted on this page belong to various courses websites and are divided as follows: Basic lab skills and lab report write up. Lab experiments links. Links for resources using Video Analysis. Over 40 ideas for open-ended labs.
PHYSICS LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS A listing of my AP Physics course lab experiments. Excellent collection of labs in pdf or WORD format from the Rutgers University Physics and Astronomy Education Research (PAER) group. Archived link to 22 Mechanics experiments and 9 Electricity and Magnetism projects. Each experiment includes a brief intro, instructor's guidelines and equipment. All files can be downloaded as pdf. Collection of links to activity and simulations for low-cost investigations The AP Physics Web Guide includes links to labs for every single topic of the AP Physics (B and C) curriculum. Brockport High School Science Department Very good AP Physics B lab resources. Each lab is given with objectives, materials, background theory, analysis and questions. Excellent labs for introductory level college physics. It includes mechanics, electricity and magnetism and waves and optics experiments for algebra-based and calculus based physics. Over 600 lab ideas in several topics from the Institute of Physics. Collection of over 50 experiments (mostly Mechanics) that use PASCO interfaces, sensors and computers. Designed for an IB Physics curriculum. It contains lab experiments procedures with diagrams and suggested investigations for every topic in an AP Physics B course.
PHYSICS LABS USING VIDEO ANALYSIS Downloadable software and sample videos. Logger Pro to do video analysis Dr. Joel Bryan. Ball State Univerrsity A collection of 19 Mechanics videos with experiment suggestions. Grids, rulers, and frame-counters are added as overlays on the videos. These allow students to make precise measurements of quantities. Collection of videos and classroom-tested curricular materials. NSF-funded LivePhoto Project. Dr. Eugenia Etkina and David Brooks. Rutgers.
