At Odds: Reconciling Experimental and Theoretical Results in High School Physics
Gates, Joshua
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v46 n1 p21-25 Spr 2009
For this experiment, students are divided into 2 groups and presented with a static equilibrium force-balance problem to solve. One group works entirely experimentally and the other group theoretically, using Newton's laws. The groups present their seemingly dissimilar results and must reconcile them through discussion. (Contains 3 figures.)
