#### Description

Podcasts created to aid all levels of Mr. Jeff Smith's physics classes at Arapahoe High School, including content appropriate for Intro Physics, AP Physics B, and AP Physics C students. Since some content applies to all of those levels, and some might be more specific for a particular type of class, the podcast titles all indicate for which level(s) the podcast is intended.

Name | Description | Released | Price | ||
---|---|---|---|---|---|

1 | CleanVideoDefinite Integrals (Level: APC) | This podcast explains how to evaluate definite integrals at given limits of integration, and how this idea relates to finding the area under the curve when a function is graphed. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

2 | CleanVideoIndefinite Integrals (Level: APC) | This podcast introduces integrals with the idea "un-doing" a derivative, and then works several examples based on the reverse of the power rule. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

3 | CleanVideoDerivatives and Max/Min (Level: APC) | This podcast explains how to apply your understanding of derivatives to the problem of finding the maximum or minimum value of a function. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

4 | CleanVideoChain Rule and Product Rule (Level: APC) | This podcast introduces how to perform derivatives for some more complicated functions, specifically how to use the chain rule for derivatives of composite functions, and how to use the product rule for the derivative of the product of two functions. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

5 | CleanVideoOther Common Derivatives (Level: APC) | This podcast introduces common derivatives that can't be performed with the power rule, such as derivatives of some trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

6 | CleanVideoDerivatives and Power Rule (Level: APC) | This podcast introduces the concept of derivatives, at a depth appropriate for students beginning a calculus-based physics course. This includes a brief description of what a derivative means, and how to find derivatives using the power rule. | 20 5 2013 | Free | View in iTunes |

7 | CleanVideoWaves on Strings (Levels: Intro, APB) | This podcast explains standing waves on strings, including an explanation for how to calculate which frequencies of vibration will 'work' to cause a certain string to resonate at all of its different harmonic frequencies. | 16 11 2012 | Free | View in iTunes |

8 | CleanVideoStatic Equilibrium (Levels: Intro, APB, APC) | This podcast introduces the idea of static equilibrium, once students are already familiar with torque concepts. | 16 11 2012 | Free | View in iTunes |

9 | CleanVideoIntro to Sound Waves (Levels: Intro, APB) | This podcast describes several sound wave properties, and introduces the sound wave phenomena of Doppler Effect and Beat Frequency. Simple calculations are also briefly discussed. | 16 11 2012 | Free | View in iTunes |

14 | CleanVideoHeat as Energy Transfer (Level: APB) | This podcast explains the definition of heat, and how it differs from internal energy. It also explains conduction, convection, and radiation as the three methods of heat transfer. | 17 11 2011 | Free | View in iTunes |

15 | CleanVideoThermal Expansion (Level: APB) | This podcast discusses calculations for the linear and volume expansion of objects when heated. | 17 11 2011 | Free | View in iTunes |

16 | CleanVideoSHM & Uniform Circular Motion (Level: APC) | This podcast deals with the similarities between simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion. Problem-solving is discussed, using functions for position, velocity, and acceleration of a simple harmonic oscillator. | 17 11 2011 | Free | View in iTunes |

17 | CleanVideoEnergy in Simple Harmonic Motion (Levels: APB, APC) | This podcast explains how to think about the energy of a simple harmonic oscillator (specifically a mass-spring system), and also how to solve related problems. | 17 11 2011 | Free | View in iTunes |
