Day 39: Phinishing the Phan Cart

Advanced Physics:

The first thing we did today was to talk about the Stack-o-graph formative assessment they took on Thursday.  I created it using the the Ramp-n-Rolll applet found here.  Here is what it looks like:

I really like this for formative assessments because of how easy it is to create new situations.  We also finished checking the phan cart predictions.  We used data sharing again and I loved it as much this time as I did yesterday!!


General Physics:

We are nearing the end of our optics unit.  Today the students took a formative assessment on drawing a ray diagram for a converging mirror.  We also WB’ed some mirror problems.
