  Abstract: The use of whiteboarding techniques and multiple representations for physics problems can help deepen students' conceptual understanding and help them succeed in AP Physics 1 & 2. The new AP Physics 1 & 2 exams intentionally investigate students' ability to translate from one representation to another. This session will look at specific ways in which both white-boarding and multiple representations can be implemented in the high school physics classroom to deepen student understanding and prepare them for the new AP Physics 1 & 2 course exams.
