Reflection: Homework Atomic Charge - Section 2: Homework Video Review - Size of the Atom


It is clear to me from the Student Responses on the Socrative quiz, that most of them watched the video. In reviewing the sheet, I see that there is one student who definitely did not watch the video as she had two incorrect answers and had no input on what she found amazing about the size of the atom. I talk to this student at the end of class. She informs me that she did not do the homework but that she intends to do it tonight. I accept that response and remind her that she only gets partial credit for late work. 

I find that I get high participation numbers when I assign such videos for homework, as they are usually interesting and well done. Though it seems there would be a lot of typing that had to happen for their answer of "What was most surprising about what you learned watching this video?" students are so used to texting that it only took them a few minutes to take the quiz.

Most of the answers on that last question revolved around reiterating facts given about the size of the atom. Instead, next time I will have students create their own analogy of the size of an atom as it compares to the sizes of the nucleus.

Atomic Charge

Unit 4: Electrostatics and Circuits
Lesson 1 of 16

Objective: Students explain why electrons are usually the particles that transfer charge based on the basic structure of the atom.

Big Idea: Electrostatic forces are the result of charge: protons have positive charge and electrons have negative charge.
