We call it the "Skirt Rule" in my class. It has to be long enough to cover everything, but short enough to keep it interesting.

I'm pretty sure the kids go home for the Easter holidays. I feel like they are really missing out on an epic egg hunt, though.

I feel like I am at a crossroads with this as well. It's a scary thought.

With building my new class, it's been too easy to fall into the trap of teaching the middle. Now that I have a skeleton plan, I think I can make the different levels work a bit better :)

I did this several years ago. I moved away from it when I started modeling, but am thinking of going back to it next year.

I wouldn't get near as much done if I didn't.

With my freshmen this year, I started with balanced forces and N1L. We then spent a little bit on constant velocity before moving into momentum. As we talked about a change in momentum, we got into impulse and that "outside force" and N2L and acceleration.

Perfect timing! I was just looking for a not boring way to review for a test next week!

I did this forever without really realizing that was what I was doing. Once a student mentioned that she appreciated it, I have made more of a conscious effort

If you're going to game on your phone, why not walk away understanding quantum physics? Believe it or not, for ages 4 and up (truly!) Built by physicists and undergrads at , "Quantum 3" is now live:

Cephalopods' intelligence allow them to understand and solve even complex problems, like this not easy test of opening a jar from the inside [source: ]

I just went through this as well. My hour long discussion turned into several more hours with my admin and a hearing with the school board. Keep your head up!

My kids (even my college kids) do this all the time. I think they spend so much time talking about linear relationships that it just never occurs to them there can be curves in their data. They always try to make it be a problem with the data collection instead

Nice! What do you use to crash you eggs? I haven't found a method I like yet

Yep. And the middle school teachers assigned is to "prepare them for high school." Then the high school teachers assign it to "prepare them for college."

This looks much less messy than having them catch an egg!
