UNIT 5: Magnetism and Electromagnetic Induction
Things you should know throughout the school closure (ways I’ll stay in touch):

1) You can always message me through Remind, not just during school hours. That’ll be the fastest way to
reach me because I have it push to my phone, and I don’t have school email on my phone.

2) I’ll keep my website up to date ( ) and post PDF’s of assignments there, since
a lot of things can get ‘left behind’ in Google Classroom if there are a lot of posts, but Google Classroom is
the official means of contact between students and teachers so I’ll be using that a lot, including videos I make
to show sample problems, etc.

3) For assignments I’d like you to complete, I’ll upload them as a Google Doc and have it so each student can
‘turn in’ to me. Remember, you can also write me a private message if you have any questions or concerns
about the assignment.

4) Please look at the subject specific review videos posted on the AP’s YouTube channel here:

5) AP information about specific AP exams and other COVID-19 related things is here:

6) Perhaps most importantly, I’ll upload the

daily ‘Doug the Pug’ calendar for those of
you who like to follow Doug!

7) Things you’ll need to have access to:

• Your College Board account (AP

• Your 5 Steps to a 5. Don’t have it? I’m

going to get my copy and I should be
able to take pictures and scan at home
if needed.

• Access to the electronic version of your


• A device with a good Internet

connection. If not, please see me so
you’ll be able to take your AP exam on
May 13 at 4 PM!
