Conceptualizing Rolling Motion through an Extreme Case Reasoning Approach

Physics Teacher, v55 n3 p152-154 Mar 2017
In this paper we are going to show how learning about some counterintuitive aspects of rolling motion can be facilitated by combining the use of analogies with extreme case reasoning. Specifically, the intuitively comprehensible examples of "rolling" polygonal prisms are used as an analogical anchor that is supposed to help the students develop conceptual understanding about counterintuitive aspects of rolling motion.
