Reflection: Intervention and Extension Introduction to Angular Motion - Section 4: Collaborative Problem Solving for Angular Motion


Sometimes students need more practice when being introduced to a new concept. I don't like to assign massive amounts of homework because my students are juggling jobs, other AP courses, and college applications, but some students need more than just one or two practice problems before they grasp a concept.

Recently, a student of mine had particular difficulty grasping the concept of angular displacement. I was able to assign her additional problems from the textbook and asked her to work on these at home, at her convenience. I will often offer students the opportunity to complete extra problems and then turn them in to me for review. This gives the student an opportunity for additional practice and individual feedback on a concept that he or she is struggling with.

Introduction to Angular Motion

Unit 6: Rotational Motion - Part I
Lesson 1 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to qualitatively and quantitatively define angular displacement, velocity, and acceleration.

Big Idea: Students roll into a unit on circular motion as they define theta, omega, and alpha (oh my)!
