Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Inertia Demo Day - Section 3: End of Discussion Checkpoint


For this particular checkpoint, I noticed that the students did not do as well as in previous years. This is the first time that I have tried using the Inertia Demos by students as the focus to the inertia section of my unit. I found that my students could answer questions directly related to the demonstrations, but they still struggled with other conceptual questions about Newton's Laws. So I decided to discuss these concepts in the next class to emphasize the situations that appeared in this checkpoint.
