Alliance for Physics Excellence

NSF Awards: 1238192

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

The Alliance for Physics Excellence (APEX), an NSF funded project awarded to Alabama A&M University in 2012 (DUE 1238192), is in its final year of implementation. The project is comprised of several components, each with its own subset of goals and objectives, relating to the project’s overarching goal of transforming secondary physics education throughout the state of Alabama. One of the goals of APEX is to provide professional development training to high school physics teachers to increase their depth and breadth of physics content knowledge and pedagogy. Additionally, instruction is infused with technology. Many of the laboratory activities performed during the APEX professional development training examines the relationship among different variables, such as the Four Step Analysis, online assessment tool called “Diagnoser” and action research. All of these variables are used to accomplish the goals and objectives of the project. The participants work in teams and use white boarding to understand, use and share concepts. This video was created by the PI, Dr. Mohan Aggarwal, and the Program Manager, Ms. Dianne Kirnes. All the details of the project and its accomplishments can be accessed online at http://alapex.org.
