Reflection: Modeling Motion Using Motion Maps And Position vs Time Graphs - Section 4: Closure

 

One of the driving forces behind my instructional practice is the question of "How might I help students to take ownership over their personal learning outcomes?" With this in mind I ask students to choose the level that they would like to be assessed on the exit slip for this lesson. I ask students to make this choice because it helps them take an internal look at their current level of understanding and asks them to prove it. I choose a minimum entry level of competent and increase the complexity of each entry point where each student has to communicate working definitions, solve word problems and summarize the connections between motion maps and position vs. time graphs.  I include a video overview of the exit slip below.

Modeling Motion Using Motion Maps And Position vs Time Graphs

Unit 2: Lessons from Galileo
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: Students will compare and contrast motion maps and position vs. time graphs.

Big Idea: The shape of a position vs.time graph depicts how fast and in which direction an object travels.
