Subject Area: Science
Course: Grade 12 Physics
Topic: Multiple Topics
Task: Formula Sheet
Technology Tool: Evernote
Grade 12 Physics is filled with many equations to learn and understand. While the textbook has information on all of these equations, the information is spread out through the whole textbook, and contains much more information than necessary.
Suggested Use of Technology
Notebooks made in Evernote for different units with each note covering a different equation. These notes will contain information such as the variables used, what these variables represent and the applications of the given equation. These individual notes while separated into notebooks by Physics unit, will also be tagged based on the variables used in the equation and how those variables are measured, allowing students to find equations from multiple units that use the same variables.
Why and how would this improve student learning?
Evernote allows students to have easy access to all the equations they will need for the year. It provides these equations in an organized manner allowing students to explore all the equations they will need for the year, and allows them to learn these equations at their own speed. This also allows students to have easy access to all the equations necessary, since Evernote is accessible via computer and mobile device, as opposed to having to flip through a notebook every time one needs to find a certain equation. This can also help students review, providing a database with all of the relevant variables available for them to learn and understand.
