Day 46: Clicker Review and Ranking Tasks

Advanced Physics:

There were three groups that did not complete the Stunt Barbie test so we finished them.  I also created a short conceptual clicker review using some of the A2L (Assessing to Learn) clicker questions.  I like some of these because, if chosen carefully, they really foster some great discussion.

 

General Physics:

We reviewed the buggy lab main concepts and then completed 2 ranking tasks.  Ranking tasks are TIPERs. (Task Inspired by Physics Education Research) The two we used dealt with displacement and distance when given a series of position graphs, and velocity and speed given another set of position-time graphs.  We approached both of them using “Think,Pair, Share”.
