Working in 1D vertical motion problems (after doing an activity with reaction time and reading about an tape measure accident). Today we used whiteboards to set-up and solve problems in groups.

Each group starts with a problem (and a specific color) and found knowns & unknowns, they then switch to the next problem and find the formula needed, switch to the next to do the algebra, then the next where they solve, and to the final board where they check another groups work. (the original answer is covered up before they arrive to do the double-check)


Afterwards we had a discussion where groups went back to their original board and problems to share: What needed to be improved, what went well, and what was a technique or idea that they’d use on solving a problem like this in the future.
