Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough components The description says that there are enough materials for 32 students. However, this is only true if 1/2 of your class is performing one part of the lab while the other 1/2 of the class is performing a completely different lab. These labs take a lot of explanation to the students. It is almost impossible for them to read the lab and figure out what to do on their own. Therefore having two different labs going at the same time makes it difficult to manage. I have increased the size of my groups so that all of the students can perform one part of the lab at the same time. However, this decreases hands-on experiences. The other problem is the durability of the materials. The motion cars (Hall's carriages) all had at least one broken wheel by the end of the 1st year of use. One of the weight hangers also broke, and to perform the lever part of the lab all of the hangers must be of equal mass. I would love to be able to order extra replacement parts or parts to make-up more lab groups.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lab Worksheet are poorly written As a new physics teacher, I buy lab kits to make my life easier by getting a set of all the lab worksheet and materials together, but the lab worksheet with this kit are very poor. There aren't any spots for students to write their answers and there are very few diagrams making the lab directions hard to follow. If you buy this kit, you will still need to write your own worksheets. I haven't calculated if the kit saves you money versus buying the materials separately, but don't buy it for the lab worksheets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lesson for Older Students excellent product with excellent lessons and instructions. The book is full of detail, and ideas for projects. With all the small parts I would not recommend this to anyone under the age of 9 yrs .old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great! This kit has some neat things (prisms, lenses, mirrors, diffraction gratings...) and it comes with a nice lab booklet with worksheets and labs you can use. Unfortunately, optics is not in our California physics standards and I found little use for this equipment. The color paddles do not work well (the colors don't really mix), and the flashlights are big and bulky- its nicer to just buy some small ones. The batteries I ended up using for the electricity labs! The labs using the lenses are very short and basically it asks the students to look through the lenses and explain what they see. Not much of a lab. But overall, I can't complain since its good quality equipment and you get what is advertised. The prisms are really nice for showing virtual images and the mirrors can be bent to show convex and concave mirror images.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great start! If you are looking to start a base of equipment for your lab, this is good place to start. I got this kit and it worked well for my first year teaching physics. It comes with a nice little lab booklet with a few basic labs and worksheets you can use. The equipment is high quality. I just wish it came with more meters and battery holders and less electrodes (which I have yet to use!). You also have to buy things like resistors and capacitors but those are cheap at radioshack. More wires would be nice too.
