Day 66: Kinesthetic Graph-Matching
College-Prep Physics: Walking in front of the motion detector in order to match the position-time graph on the screen.This is a research-based activity for helping students become proficient in interpreting motion graphs. Plus, the kids are up out of their seats, moving around, and having fun. See: Thornton, R. K., and D. R. Sokoloff, "Learning motion concepts using real-time microcomputer-based laboratory tools", Am. J. Phys. 58 (1990) 858-867.
