# Day 56: Formative Assessment with Mini-Whiteboards

*College-Prep Physics:* Introduced the motion detector and position-time graphs today. Students used the mini-whiteboards to predict the graph shapes for various fast/slow buggy scenarios.

Also great discussion about how the slopes on forwards and backwards buggies compare. Typical predictions included inverse, negative, and negative reciprocal.

Do you do the units in the same order that the modeling curriculum presents them?

No. Originally I did, but then I’ve changed things up in recent years. For forces and motion, I usually do CVPM, BFPM, CAPM, and UBFPM. One year I did momentum first. Last year I did energy first. This year I’m doing an extended BFPM using

Preconceptions in Mechanicsmaterials, then CVPM and CAPM, then back to UBFPM.
