- I am really confused about entry one. My big concept is on motion.
My three entries are: a lab activity exploring the effects of friction
on different surfaces. Students measured the distance objects
traveled different surfaces and graphed their results. They then wrote
a conclusion. The conclusion was suppose to inculde how friction
played into the demo. I had some students that just told results
instead of using the term friction. What is the best way to handle
this? I worte a comment how they were on the right track but to
please add more to the conclusion by telling about the friction that
The second entry is on the relationship between mass of an object and
the distance traveled. I am still designing this one. I am playing
around with including momentum with this, but I am not sure yet.
The third is going to be taken from one of the interactive inaternet
activities the students are working on in computer lab. My concerns are:
1) are these ideas not connected enough
2) if a student shows a misconception during the friction lab is
appropriate to write on the lab report info that will clarify the
I don't understand how to show student growth since the assignments
are so different.
I have a feeling I am totally off track on this. I will appreciate
