I created this page as a resource for other teachers. I do not claim these are perfect, in fact I know there is much fault to be found in them, however as the perfect is the enemy of the good, I share them here. If you find something useful please feel free to use it.
These are resources I used in the 2020-21 school year. I can't take anything resembling full credit for them, I have used in the past the resources of Mr. Trask as well I inherited a collection of notes when I started teaching physics which are credited to R. Messer. To varying extents the works here are derivative of these sources. Beyond these two I borrowed every good idea I read on Twitter, every blog I browsed, and every teacher I spoke to.
These are the resources I used in the terrible year of the pandemic, and were created with the goal of meeting the new curriculum in British Columbia. However, I did not cover everything in the curriculum, largely due to the very odd nature of the year. In particular there are no resources here covering waves or sound, as that was covered quickly and in a rush, and the majority of the electricty outcomes were covered in labs. In addition these were created for 3 hour blocks, which I hope to never endure again. In short this is not a full course, and many of the files listed will likely require modification. It is also likely there are errors in the files. If you find one please let me know.
Intro and Scientific Notation
Error and and Sig FigsNote that I use the simplified sig fig rule of always rounding to the least number of sig figs in a calculation, it seems to me that the few cases where using the adding rule is better are not enough to warrent confusing a subject students already find confusing. And more formal error analysis will have to replace sig figs rules at some point in their future career anyway.
