Do any of you do physics lab experiments with your students?

 

Do you use a lab curriculum or random experiments from the web, etc.

 

I want to do a fun physics lab that seriously gets into some of the physics concepts, but doesn't have to be heavy on math. I'm not afraid to buy some supplies and I do have the background to teach it. Do you have any suggestions for me?

I would suggest the book, Practical Physics Labs by Peter Goodwin (Walch Publishers). I've used selections from it with my high school Conceptual Physics co-op class. Also, the Conceptual Physics, Hewitt, (The High School version) lab manual has quite a few experiments that are easily done without complex equipment.

Thanks. The Hewitt labs look interesting. Also, it looks as if the author is working on a new lab book and I'm not sure when this will be out.
