Yes, I recommend
Good beginning lab - The actual materials of the lab aren't anything to brag about (triple beam balance, dowels, string, rulers and calipers). The lab write-up itself is really nice though. It is a great introduction to measurement, significant figures, error, etc. It is a relatively quick lab for students to perform also, which is nice. I recommend it to teachers doing an AP Physics course.

The basis for any lab is good data-collection technique. In this lab, students gain hands-on experience in obtaining precise and accurate measurements, which provide the data for analysis of experimental results. Ideal for advanced-honors physics courses, AP B and C courses, and IB courses, these experiments are aligned with the College Board AP Curriculum.
