Advanced Physics 2 Lab Manual (PS-3812) –

Prepare your students for inquiry investigations in the physics lab. Each lab is presented in three ways:
 •  Structured
 •  Guided Inquiry
 •  Student designed
You decide which level of inquiry is appropriate for each lab. Each lab includes teacher resources:
 •  Pre-lab discussion and questions
 •  Procedural overview
 •  Teacher tips
 •  Sample data
 •  Assessment and synthesis questions
 •  Extended inquiry suggestions
How-to videos are included with the manual, on the PASCO website and on YouTube, and can even be installed on your own computers. These videos focus on setting up the labs and getting the most from your PASCO sensors and equipment.


Education Resource Information

There are 16 investigations in the Advanced Physics 2 Experiment Guide. 8 can be performed using the PS-3816 Equipment Kit. The remainder can be performed by adding the PS-3817 Expansion Kit.
