It was a very bizarre day. We had the farewell assembly for the seniors. The schedule was all askew (to accommodate that farewell assembly), and the school was a bit unsettled.
The class was AP physics. Almost half the class was missing because they were seniors. (After the farewell assembly, the seniors were done. They won't be in class again.)
Their teacher left a video or "go to YouTube and look up Vsauce..."
So, I went to YouTube, looked up Vsauce, and the students directed me to click on something else. Vsauce3.
Which is not Vsauce. But it's the end of the year. And it didn't look inappropriate. Sure, the topics were video game related, but it's not like we were doing any physics...
Some of the videos we watched:
If you checked any of those out, you might notice something. Not physics related? Um, no. Not really. They are very physics related.
The Pokemon one? They're talking terminal velocities and acceleration due to gravity. The Superman one discussed the speed of light and how hard a punch like that would be.
So, I guess we were kind of on task. Sort of. Even though they were done.
I wonder if they realized how much physics they were seeing. I bet they did.
