What is Flipped Physics?

Flipped Physics is primarily a series of videos, with supplementary materials, created to help students learn physics. Although I could have kept these materials locked up, for use only by my current high school students, I was inspired not to do that. Primarily I was inspired by John and Hank Green, who have numerous educational YouTube channels in addition to their main channel. I was also partly inspired by other educational YouTube content such as VSauce and Minutephysics.

Who are you?

My name is David Wood. I am a physics teacher at Severn School in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. I am a Christian, a philosopher, a writer, and a husband. But most of all I am a NERD, and very proud of it. For more about me, I recommend visiting my blog: http://www.david-wood.com.

But... why?

This site is dedicated to the idea that students best learn at their own pace, and with direct support. I also believe that educational materials should be shared, not hoarded. There is an increasing amount of research that flipped classrooms -- ones where lecture content is through videos that students watch as homework, and classwork is hands-on activities and practice -- are far more effective than traditional instruction.
