About e-mentoring program. Rebekah (ISU – Carl Winning) Winning, physics teacher training at Illinois State University. Very much into monitoring. Bob Champlain (E & M modeling).

E-mentoring needs mentors and mentees.

Read Arnold P. Arons book. How physics modeling should be taught to get the concepts of physics (1997). The book is very modeling friendly. Actually $110, we were able to get it for 1/2 price. Waiting for the code for this discount through AMTA. If you want to order that, you should take a look.

Finishing homework. Then do Whiteboards.

The lab is the anchor for the unit, keep coming back to that.

The

You really need to listen to students to make sure they are using the words correctly.

And you really need to listen to yourself.

Have a speed/velocity police. If you think someone has used the word incorrectly raise your

Slope of a distance versus time graph is a speed.

You can draw average speed on distance versus time graph

You can draw average velocity on position versus time graph

"I don’t want to write this, because saying this is hard."

If you have someone write it, make sure they can write it and speak it, and the kids will catch it.

A problem with horizontal versus vertical lines.

Don’t let a student say "it is constant".

Not using words precisely.

Really good students don’t say "it is

Whatever term you use, define it, stick with it, make sure kids know how to use it.

Jim Stankevitz talks about pacing.

If understanding is not deep and complete and full then why are you covering it.

FCI scores were much improved.

Do you often put the easier problem last and the harder problem sooner.

Strategies for helping students fight through the question and not giving them answers.

In modeling materials, ultrasonic using a device to help detect motion.

Pro Con Ugly
Accurate as long as you have the right object setting. Can’t get reliable data up close to the detector. Its color
Instantly reacts to a change in setting. Only measure in one direction. Its bulky
Gathers lots of data quickly. It has wires
Troubleshooting!
You can aim it? Cost!
Some extraneous data…
