Day 77 – Goal-less Problem


Physics 11 – Students had their first try at a goal-less problem today. In general, the students had done ok on their practice problems for unbalanced forces and quizzed well on it. To do more practice and something a bit more difficult, I introduced the goal-less problem. The idea is that students are presented with a situation and it’s their job to analyze the physics behind it. There is no one answer or thing to find, they just have to apply what they’ve learned. It’s also a good way to reintroduce kinematics to their problems.
