I’m a big fan of group work, students had a day to work on these problems during class, then we met together to go through the mechanics of solving a freefall problem step by step.

The prep bench was a bit too much of a physical divide, so I put a second “big board” together with some binder clips and we were all able to sit around it and have a better conversation about free fall. Doing Pass-the-Pig each student added one piece of information to the grid/conversation. 50180
