Reflection: Complex Tasks Multiple Representations of Motion, Day 1 - Section 3: Constant Velocity Motion Practice Problems


When I gave students this work, I knew that it would be difficult for my students to complete on their own. So I decided that this would be a perfect opportunity for students to develop some collaborative skills by relying on the knowledge of the members of their group to help them to solve a problem. In class, students were reluctant at first to ask their group members and asked me many questions. My response to each question was "Did you ask your group member's first?" Most of the time they hadn't and after they asked their group members, between the 4 students, they were able to come up with a reasonable answer for the problem. Even though it is early to start students with difficult problems, I like them to learn to use their resources including their group members to help them solve problems.
