 Hi, my name is Heidi Ahern.  I am originally from Rochester, NY.   I have been living in Bardstown for the past 16 years and working in the Bardstown City School District for the past 15 years.  I have a BS degree in Physics with a Math Minor from Brigham Young University and an MA degree in Teaching from Spalding University.  I am married with 2 daughters currently pursuing their PhD's at Stony Brook University in Planetary Science and at the University of Kentucky in Cardiac Physiology.  I teach Pre-AP  Algebra 2, Basic Geometry, and AP Physics.  Please feel free to contact me anytime by phone, email, or a visit.  Parents and students are always welcome!

Course Descriptions and Syllabi

Basic Geometry:

This course is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions.  It includes the study of transformations and right triangle trigonometry.  Inductive and deductive thinking skills are used in problem solving situations, and applications to the real world are stressed.  It also emphasizes writing proofs to solve (prove) properties of geometric figures. 

PreAP Algebra 2: 

Algebra II will explore and interpret real-world problems as well as patterns and their representations (expressions, equations, graphs).  It will also explain mathematical relationships verbally and symbolically and use technology, such as graphing calculators that will help analyze data and recognize patterns more easily.  Algebra II will build a mathematical foundation that will make connections among mathematical concepts, across disciplines, and in everyday experiences. The course will help prepare for future mathematics courses, college, and careers.  During this course, students will also prepare for the math portion of college entrance exams.   

AP Physics: 

The AP Physics 1 Course has been designed by the College Board as a course equivalent to the algebra-trigonometry based college-level physics course. At the end of the course, students will take the AP Physics 1 Exam, which will test their knowledge of both the concepts taught in the classroom and their application of laboratory experiences. The AP Physics 1 course requires lab work which is integral to the understanding of the concepts in this course. This course makes use of guided inquiry and student-centered learning to promote the growth of critical thinking skills. AP Physics 1 prepares students for further study in science, medicine, and engineering. Students will gain an understanding of fundamental physics principles and then apply them to problem solving and laboratory investigations.
