The Physics Presentations materials package is a set of handouts, overheads, and crossword puzzles geared towards students researching, and giving a great physics presentation. The package includes objectives, presentation guidelines, a list of possible topics, rubrics, sign out sheets, visual pros and cons, presentation discussion questions, and PowerPoint tips.
Students start out by using a list of physics topics to do research to fill out two crossword puzzles and choose a topic. They then work on the project outside of class except for two checkpoint periods where they need to have outlines and a list of visuals. Then the students will sequentially do their 15 minute (or 30 minutes for a team of 2) presentations.
The following files are included:
