This is a workbook to go along with regular mini lessons. It is designed to take 3 weeks of 70 minute classes but could be adjusted or used for make up work.
It assumes that students have a firm grounding of kinematic equations for the last
This is a 5 question test over acceleration, kinematic equations and basic algebra. Appropriate for a mastery check in a high school physics course during or after studying Linear motion in one dimension.
This is an assessment of free body diagrams and Newton's Second Law. It also gives students a chance to continue to show mastery of kinematic equations in one problem. Requires students to justify their answers for almost every question.
Students solve any problem in the first box, without help, then students pass the problem the next corrects and justifies answer, finally the third writes a critique of the reasoning in the justification.
Loosely based on the CBS TV Show "The Amazing Race" this is a whole school or grade activity to build culture and have fun. Students work in pairs to complete tasks that inspire perseverance, cooperation and build school culture. Everything from
