Today, AP Physics 2 students prepared and presented whiteboards on a variety of topics. The problems I selected integrated multiple concepts from previous units as well as the current unit on circuits. I was especially looking forward to one problem on electroplating, but didn’t realize only our AP Chemistry students had done an electroplating lab! After a brief tangent to explain electroplating, we continued with our whiteboards. One problem had students analyze a graph of current vs. time to determine the charge. This isn’t a representation that I had used before, and it was good way to reinforce students’ understanding of the relationship between charge and current.
