Hey folks.

I am Paul. I started this website some time ago.
You might have seen that wikispaces is shutting down. Bummer. I plan to move the site and all resources housed within it to another location. I am investigating options right now. There are a lot of options, but I want to make sure a few things work. My major concerns:
1- Keep it free.
2- allow access to members
3- keep exams & test questions restricted from non-teachers
4- Uploaded files cannot be edited or deleted from / on the site.

I think we will get there. It is a matter of timing. I'm a full time teacher (4 preps this year), I have two daughters (13 & 15), and I do some consulting on the side. That keeps me fairly busy.

I have already exported / downloaded the website and its content. It will be available in some for or another. It just might not be too pretty right after wikispaces shuts down. Hopefully it will all be available and clean by the end of this coming summer.
Have a good one.

Get Stuff: You do not need to be a member to download labs! If you are looking around for some good labs to use or to tweak, check the category links on the left. Items have been put here for physics teachers, by physics teachers, and range from first-year high school physics to AP material. The emphasis is on labs, but explanatory material is also available. The University sources on the bottom will direct you to even more great material.

Share Stuff: You do need to be a member to upload a file. If you have something, SHARE IT!
