Staacks, Sebastian; Hütz, Simon; Heinke, Heidrun; Stampfer, Christoph – Physics Teacher, 2019
We propose an easy experiment that allows students to determine the speed of sound through a simple time-of-flight measurement using two smartphones. The concept of using the sensors in mobile phones for physics experiments has become a well-known option for science teachers. Since these devices are readily available to most students and teachers,…

Coletta, Vincent P.; Bernardin, Josh; Pascoe, Daniel; Hoemke, Anatol – Physics Teacher, 2019
Physics instructors recognize the value of kinesthetic experience in learning fundamental physics concepts. We describe a kinesthetic experiment appropriate for both college and high school physics students. The experiment helps students achieve an intuitive understanding of Newton's second law in a way they find quite enjoyable. It was devised by…

Haugland, Ole Anton – Physics Teacher, 2019
Students should have a strong conceptual understanding of the connection between force and acceleration before they start working with applications and problem solving. This has been discussed in the literature. During these days of flipped classroom instruction, an at-home activity could be especially valuable. I will describe an experiment with…

Heafner, Joe – Physics Teacher, 2019
In this, the first installment in a series, I present a list of approximately 10[superscript 2] questions that can be addressed in an introductory astronomy course using ubiquitous farmer's almanacs. Some of these questions take the reader into the world of astrology and perhaps other pseudosciences, but that is okay with me because at one time…

Fink Chorzempa, Barbara; Smith, Michael D.; Sileo, Jane M. – Teacher Education and Special Education, 2019
Within their teacher preparation courses and field experiences, preservice teachers are introduced to numerous instructional practices, not all of which are considered research-based. For this reason, instruction in how to evaluate the effectiveness of one's practices is essential, but it is often a lacking component of initial certification…

Autin, Melanie A.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2019
The negative hypergeometric distribution is often not formally studied in secondary or collegiate statistics in contexts other than drawing cards without replacement. We present a different context with the potential of engaging students in simulating and exploring data.

White, Simon R.; Bonnett, Laura J. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2019
The statistical concept of sampling is often given little direct attention, typically reduced to the mantra "take a random sample". This low resource and adaptable activity demonstrates sampling and explores issues that arise due to biased sampling.

Blair, Carrie A.; Shaver, Kelly G. – Management Teaching Review, 2019
Extrinsic and intrinsic motivations are simple concepts that our students seem to quickly understand, yet few of our students grasp the complexity of sustaining intrinsic motivation. This exercise aims to help students better understand that complexity. Students are given a two-part scenario. In Part 1, the individual motives to innovate are…

David, Jannifer G. – Management Teaching Review, 2019
Although U.S. corporations rely heavily on merit pay programs to distribute pay increases to their employees, many undergraduate students, even those who have held jobs, lack exposure to merit pay programs until they take their first human resource management course. The exercise gives students an opportunity to experience how organizations make…
