Martin Kirby
 
Martin Kirby earned his B.Sc. in physics and education at London University, taught physics in England for eight years, came to the US and has been teaching for the past 27 years at Hart High School (2,300 students) near Los Angeles.
 
He has been an AP* reader, table leader or question leader for over 15 years, a member of the AP* Physics Exam Development Committee for eight years,  a College Board consultant for 16 years, a presenter of one week summer workshops for 14 years  This year he’s teaching four AP* ‘B’  physics classes, and one 1 AP
Physics C (Mech and E+M). Next year he’ll be teaching 4 AP Physics P1 classes and 1 AP Physics C (Mech and E+M).
Like many other physics teachers, he has an average class size of 43, a budget of $800, and (until recently) a windowless 1960s classroom built for 24 students: thus he is familiar with 'real world' problems of real physics teachers.  To relax he rides a bike, avoids work and plays violin.

For AP Physics participants…

Things to bring…

  • Calculator.
  • Any favorite demonstrations/experiments that you love because they either are simple and useful, or just inspire awe in the students. We will spend the last afternoon sharing such ideas… we don't know the demonstrations you think we all know!
  • A laptop/ipad would be useful, but is not required. Wi-fi will be available throughout the building.
