Where'd the midterm and finals go?

Yuriy Zavorotniy • 4 years, 5 months agologin to reply

We do not have final tests for AP Courses. All teachers who are authorized to teach AP courses have excess to AP materials on AP Central website (secure materials). You can use one of those tests as your final.

Is the final posted as part of the course materials for AP Physics 1 or is it in a different section? All I see is the 14 posted chapters. Is it inside one of the chapters?

For slide 52, I get 8.9 sec as the answer, not 28 sec

Melissa Axelsson • 4 years agologin to reply

Tom-which unit are you referring to and we will double check the answer. Melissa

Is there a pacing guide for the entire year somewhere?

Melissa Axelsson • 2 years, 11 months agologin to reply

Andrew - you can find the pacing guide at this link: https://njctl.org/courses/science/ap-physics-1/attachments/ap-physics-1-syllabus/ It is on the main page at the bottom, under "implementation resource" - Melissa

I am probably blind, but I couldn't find the overall pacing guide at the link.

Melissa Axelsson • 2 years, 6 months agologin to reply

Pam - you are correct there is not an overall year long pacing guide. However if you download the Unit Plan that is available under the "Teacher Resource" section of each unit, the number of days for each unit is indicated on that. - Melissa

How long will it take for the account to get approved?

Melissa Axelsson • 2 years, 6 months agologin to reply

Jenny - we are having trouble verifying your status as a teacher. Please email a copy of either you school id or teaching certificate to infor@njctl.org. Once we have that we will update your access immediately. - Melissa

Can the Kinematics materials from the honors course be moved into AP Physics 1? Where do I find the reading assignments?

Melissa Axelsson • 1 year, 11 months agologin to reply

There is a link to the Kinematics materials from Algebra Based Physics in this course. Here is the link directly to it: https://njctl.org/courses/science/algebra-based-physics/kinematics/ Are you referring to the reading quizzes?

Is there anyway to get the smart notebook files as PPT files?

Melissa Axelsson • 9 months agologin to reply

Ashley - unfortunately the presentations do not convert into Powerpoint very good at all. One thing you can do is you can download an older version of SMART Notebook that is still available to download for PC. You can find directions on how to do that at this link: www.njctl.org/notebook The presentations will also convert into Promethian Activinspire software. Melissa
