There's still lots of confusion about motion maps and graphs. One of the most popular errors is having a motion map that jumps to show motion in opposite directions. So , rather than for example. I think it may be time for some video analysis...
After the quiz, I allowed some classes to work on whatever they needed to get done, and started the lab practical with the Honors class (because they have a double period on Fridays).
- Most of the students are getting over the idea that everything needs to have points attached to be worthwhile.
- An easily distracted student saw that I had written a comment about his distraction and buckled down to finish his work.
- The Honors class measured cart velocities in a variety of ways.
- Small group and independent non-worksheet learning is really tough for some of my students. I need to try the technique of using the IWB to record observations during such times.
