Reflection: Quizzes Quantitative Conservation of Energy, Part 1 - Section 1: Work, Power & Energy Quiz


Overall, the quiz was a great success for the students. Over 3/4 of my students were able to use the correct equations depending on what they were given in the problem. Since there are multiple equations in this unit, I wanted to make sure that they could differentiate what type of equation to use where and I believe that my students accomplished that as you can see in the image below.

The most common error as you can see below was that students forgot to convert grams to kilograms. The question that was most difficult for them was the one where the man pushes against a wall. That requires students to think about what is required for work to be done and since the wall does not move there is no work being done. 

  Quizzes: Success!
