Physics 4-25-17 Characteristics of Light & Plane Mirrors

PHYSICS: So much fun with light! Here’s the lecture on the characteristics of light, polarization, reflection and plane mirrors. We’ll play with mirrors and the reflection of light a bit more tomorrow!

Hallelujah! He is Risen!!

HE was born, but it didn’t end there. HE lived, but it didn’t end there. HE did great things, but it didn’t end there. HE died a horrible death, but it didn’t end there. My Savior is not dead, JESUS is alive! Happy Easter – yesterday, today, and forever!!!

Physics 4-11-17 Sound Intensity and Resonance

PHYSICS: Happy Monday! Good to be back to sound!

We had to play a little catch up today from last week, so this vodcast from last year will give you today and then a heads up for tomorrow!

Couple of items to apply for discussion (for tomorrow!) – so how does the whole hearing thing work? I mean, I know the little bones in your ear move, but why? Is resonance involved? Great item for application/discussion! And here’s another – why would different violins produce different sounds? I mean, is a Stradavarius valued so highly just because of the name? Let’s talk more about that!

ExploreZone 2017

Awesome, awesome day at ExploreZone! WOW!!!! You guys are the GREATEST!! Thanks to you, ExploreZone was a HUGE success! The elementary kids loved it and the junior high and high school did too! Everywhere I went, I saw faces with smiles and surprise and excitement. Your incredible hard work paid off. A special thanks to thosee who stayed late Wednesday setting up and Thursday cleaning up! We couldn’t have made it without you!!

I took some pics that you can watch in the slide show below (maybe it will work??), or click here for a link to all of the pictures here on I think you may be able to download photos as well. Holler if you have photos or videos that we can add to the collection.

What are your favorite memories? Post them below! Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“Wow, look at that!!!”


“Hit him again!! (elementary kids are brutal!)


And my all time favorite – “Whoa, I wanna do that!”

Physics 3-29-17 Waves

PHYSICS: Hey guys! Here’s our discussion on the properties of waves. Remember anything from your earlier 8th grade physical science days? Problems are pretty simple for you, I think. Do you remember the main formula from chemistry? Speed = wavelength x frequency (c = λf).

Easy peasy – and don’t forget the applications!

Physics 3-8-17 Overview of Chapter 8

PHYSICS: So I may have been a little wrong about the difficulty of last night’s problems, but aren’t you glad we went over them! Great review today. My apologies on the recording – I kept forgetting when I hit pause and when I didn’t!!

God bless you as you study for your test!
