Reflection: Unit Exams Midterm Exam - Section 3: Physics Midterm Exam


As is typical of mid-year exams, the results were scattered. Many students scored, out of 50 points, in the high 40s. Some barely scored more than 20 points. The average score, however, was a 42/50 which, given the intensity of the week for students, the scope of the content on the test, and the fact that this was truly their first Physics test of the year, was a cause for celebration.

Here's a look at a couple of questions about forces, work, and area, a topic we spent a good deal of time on in the first semester:

Here's a look at two responses to the calorimetry question, one of the topics from the very beginning of the year:
