Briefly explain your physics teaching experience and/or your experience creating educational materials through video. Please answer in exactly 3 sentences.*
Write a brief step-by-step explanation of how to solve the problem below. Your steps should also include the final answer to the problem. Your audience for this explanation is a high school Physics I student.

A toy car with a mass of 1 kg starts from rest at the top of a ramp at point A. The toy car is released from rest, rolls 2.0 meters down the ramp, then another 3.0 meters across the floor to point B where its speed is measured to be 4.24 m/s. The air exerts a resistance force of 2.0 N on the car as it moves from A to B. Find the initial height of the car at point A. Assume g = 10 m/s^2.

Note: The student has mastered the concept of the conservation of energy and is proficient in solving problems where energy is conserved. The student is new to solving energy problems involving work done by non-conservative forces. Explain how work is related to the total mechanical energy of a system, then use this information to set up and solve the problem above.*

(1) Introducing yourself
(2) Writing today's date in this form: “Month Day, Year”.

We will use this video to get a better sense of your audio and visual setup.

Requirements for the video are:
- No longer than 30 seconds
- Clear and legible handwriting
- Writing should be done in a program like OneNote or Whiteboard using a screen recorder. Do not record writing on a physical paper or actual whiteboard. Do not record your face.
