Gravity Is Easy to Understand, Right? The Difference between Calculating and Comprehending
Concannon, James P.
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v49 n1 p14-22 2012
Physics instruction looks different from one classroom to the next; however, the outcome of those classrooms should be one and the same. Students should understand simple concepts and be able to transfer concepts to more complex problems. In this lesson, I would like to show you how I provide students an opportunity to explore their ideas before formulae or calculations are introduced. (Contains 14 figures.)
