The last couple days we focussed on motion graphs. I thought at first I allotted too much time for this activity but it has proven useful. Grant Howerton spiced the activity up with the title “car crash ballet”. Students found a car crash video and song next they made a motion diagram of the crash. […]Read more "Motion graphs"
For the last few classes we have been looking at the relationship between position and time. As I am putting my thoughts together to write this I am realizing we got through alot! 1. Students took a 5 question open note quiz on displacement. They could take the quiz as many times as needed but […]Read more "Where will the buggy stop? AKA the relationship between position and time for a moving object."
Most of today was mainly a day to clean up. Digital notebooks, contracts and knows/need to knows. They needed a bit more guidance and accountability so I enacted daily checkins. Students now need to tell me what they did, provide evidence of work and a reflection. Many of the students dont need this but will […]Read more "How far did the buggy move? Take one"
Today was the start of our dont text and drive project in physics. I had some issues getting students excited enough to engage with the work. Going forward starting the day off with ecciting examples of ad campaigns would be helpful. The first need to knows we tackled: How do I describe motion verbally? And […]Read more "How Far is Far?"
Supposition: – One will not collaborate effectively if they do not feel they have contribution that is meaningful and worthy. Assuming that this is true how do educators teach students to recognize and be confident in their abilities and knowledge in secondary education? Recently I have fallen in love with a band from Sweden that […]Read more "Building confidence in academically low performing students"
I have been wanting to use interactive notebooks for some time now. At the same time I have been excited about the idea of digital notebooks. My biggest problem: how can I blend the best of both of these ? Interactive notebook At first settled for just doing an interactive notebook because I do see […]Read more "Digital notebook"
This week we focussed on electrostatic. Originally I thought that we should just jump right into circuits but I was convinced to try it in this order and it was perfect. Sticky tape lab We started off with a sticky Tape lab. We charged up some tape (negative and positive) and put the tape next […]Read more "Circuit notebook week 2"
