Take-Home Physics is an excellent resource for high school physics teachers who want to devote more classroom time to complex concepts while challenging their students with hands-on homework assignments. This volume presents 65 take-home physics labs that use ordinary household items or other inexpensive materials to tackle motions and kinematics; forces and energy; waves, sound, and light; and electricity and magnetism. The results: Students learn background knowledge, reinforce basic process skills, practice discovery, and bridge classroom learning with real-world applications, all while getting excited about homework. Teachers can also integrate science and literacy by requiring the use of lab notebooks with formal write-ups , Materials lists and safety notes, as well as both student activity pages and teacher notes are included.Ehrlich, R. 1997.
