Physics 11 – I did a lot of talking again today, which was expected but still a bit disappointing. It was the first board meeting I had with one class, and they were very quiet and unsure of what to say, ask or critique.
The top picture shows some good analysis and you can see the influence of math in the notation. We later talked about better symbols to use, and why a decimal is better than a fraction in this context. The bottom picture is a screen grab from the consensus we came to for making whiteboards and models. This class didn’t have anyone generalize the model, so I had to go over that part.
Next the students will have some practice moving through different representations (words, graphs, motion maps), which will highlight how they all apply to the same model.
