Trolling for Ideas

We have started a STEM initiative at our school. I am hoping to gain some traction for a conversation centered on a joint Physics/Calculus curriculum. We have two courses in place at our school that are joint teacher operations.  We have a course called Seminar that is co-taught by our history and english department chairs. We also have a course called Creative Spirit co taught by a studio art teacher and our music director. So, we have the vision in our school to create courses that break the mold a bit. I would love to try and launch a course combining physics and calculus ideas. I am certain that there are schools where such a program exists and I would love to have some curricular conversations along these lines. Anyone out there with ideas they’d love to share?

    I’d love to hear about how this works out! We teach a double-period AP calculus BC/AP physics C course at my school, but I don’t think that’s quite what you have in mind. Maybe something like an applications of calculus (via physics or engineering) course?

      I’ll do my best to keep posting about it if it gains any momentum. Maybe you’d like to be our magic bullet to help make it happen? : )
