Making Connections to the "Real World": A Model Building Lesson
Horibe, Shusaku; Underwood, Bret
Physics Education, v44 n6 p633-638 Nov 2009
Classroom activities that include the process of model building, in which students build simplified physical representations of a system, have the potential to help students make meaningful connections between physics and the real world. We describe a lesson designed with this intent for an introductory college classroom that engages students in the building of models, and illustrate the implementation of this lesson by examining student work. (Contains 5 footnotes and 3 figures.)
