This clip involves students gathered around in a whiteboard circle for a discussion regarding their position, velocity, and acceleration versus time graphs. The professor brings up the idea of what is considered to be a “right” answer. The discussion concludes with the professor establishing that a “good” answer is what is consistent.
This clip takes place in week 3 (Becoming Quantitative with Constant Acceleration). This whiteboard session is based off of students’ work on the Becoming Quantitative worksheet. The goal of this discussion is to make sure students’ models are internally consistent.
