What suggestions do you have for hybrid learning on chromebooks for assessments?

Most teachers that we have been talking with have been using google forms for assessments. They are taking our word files and then making them a google form that the students can answer.

Elvin - is this a website you have been using that you find to work out good? Is there a charge for it? - Melissa

Hello, I seem to remember that you used to have a midterm exam posted. Is that still available?

Melissa Axelsson • 1 year, 6 months agologin to reply

Annette - we have three separate tests for this course in addition to the final. Since we can't predict exactly what will be the mid point for different schools. On this page under implementation resources you will see: 1- Mechanics Final Test 2- Electromagnetism Final Test 3- Waves & Modern Physics Final Test Hopefully you can use questions from those three tests to create your midterm. - Melissa

Thanks Melissa!

I am finding many incorrect answers in the key PSI Algebra Based Physics - Momentum Presentation Answer Key. Please advise.

Is the file at this link the one you are referring to? https://njctl.org/materials/resources/momentum-presentation-answer-key-1/attachments/

Irving - we have decided to remove these from the website - they weren't being updated as changes were being made to the presentations so they no longer matched up. The answers to the formative assessment questions in the presentations can be found by downloading the PDF file that says "with answers". That file will have a slide that shows the question followed by a slide that shows the answer tab pulled out. - Melissa

Thank you!!!

Hi, what is the course progression you recommend for physics? After Algebra-based physics, would students then take Trigonometry-based physics? Or would they jump to AP Physics 1? Or could they do either one? Thanks -Kayla

Melissa Axelsson • 1 year, 3 months agologin to reply

Kayla - After Algebra-Based Physics we recommend that students go into AP Physics 1. Algebra-Based Physics and Trig-Based Physics are very similar. - Melissa

Where can I find the spanish versions of the each unit?

Melissa Axelsson • 1 month, 1 week agologin to reply

Heather - it can be found at this link: https://njctl.org/materials/courses/algebra-based-physics-en-espanol/ Melissa

Hello! Is the textbook for algebra based physics available? I cannot find a link to it anywhere. Thanks!

Melissa Axelsson • 2 weeks, 2 days agologin to reply

Jesse - we do not have a textbook that goes along with our materials. The presentations for each unit are what comprises of the textbook for the course. - Melissa
