Greetings to my new Kell students!  This is my blog home for my AP Physics I and Zoology classes.

The Synergy grade app for students can be downloaded to your smart phone to check your grades.

  • In the app store ( Apple or Android) look up “student vue” and download the app. It’s free.
  • When it asks for the school district URL, enter https://studentvue.cobbk12.org . Make sure to put in https, not http.
  • Hit the “test” button to make sure it works
  • Enter your normal student school login and password

I send TEXT Message updates for my classes:

  • To join AP Physics, have them text @app1fall to 81010
  • To join Zoology, have them text @kellzoo to 81010
  • To join Kell Soccer, have them text @kellsoccer to 81010

Or go to the website and enter the class code here: http://www.remind101.com/join#/join

Flipping Physics YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYqACVYl0c0BhlVN6X2HIMg
The Physics Classroom: https://www.physicsclassroom.com/
Many other sources exist. If you look around, Google the specific text of a problem, you’ll stumble into them or ask me for more if these don’t work for you!
