Video transcript

I have taught ap physics classes for the last seven years AP Physics 1 AP physics be back in the day and AP Physics II now I try to make my lessons personable relate to the student offer them real-life examples where things happen but also focus on instead of a bunch of little memorization facts like what's the big idea that helps you figure all these different situations for like allows you to be more of a robust problem solver so we're focusing on the big core ideas of our subject being physics and I think you'll find that across all the different AP content subjects we are finely tuned to what the AP exam is going to be like directly and we are building in videos for instructions specific to that and also we have practice exercises that I'm really excited about that you can assign it to students and there's hints and there's feedback why a certain problem is wrong and why certain problems right and then Mike it shows you the solution path of how you would get to the solution so when you assign a student a problem they don't have to wait a whole 24 hours until they get back to class they can get it wrong fail early try another one fail often and do a couple times on that and I actually think my students might actually do more home like homework because they're getting instant feedback on the process rather than just trying a couple and getting stuck and like I'm frustrated I'm out of here they can like really get in the seat and stay in there because they're getting an instant feedback and in the help as they're working through problems I think that's gonna be really powerful you
