Reflection: Checks for Understanding Newton's Second Law and Free Body Diagrams, Part 1 - Section 3: End of Discussion Checkpoint for Newton's Second Law


All of my students were able to create an accurate free body diagram and use the correct form of the equation but I still had several students that did not know what to do from once they got there (Poor Student Work EOD #1). A majority of my students had work along the lines of this example (Good Student Work EOD #1). This was a positive sign that, after working with another worksheet, most students are be on track to mastering using Newton's second law with free body diagrams.
