I was not in school on Friday. The plan for both the Advanced Physics course and General Physics course was the same; group problem solving. The Advanced assignment was a set of six projectile problems, while the General assignment was a set of three constant velocity problems that were to be solved graphically. While I sometimes cringe at using an entire class period on this type of assignment, many of my students love this type of day.It allows them to practice solving problems and get help at the same time. In a sense it is what many of us crave…extras time to work. I suppose it is like a teacher getting an extra prep hour.
