Curriculum development to improve student understanding of rolling motion
written by Sheh Lit Chang and Peter S. Shaffer
Research has led to the identification of some specific difficulties that students have in understanding the motion of an object that is rolling without slipping. At the University of Washington, we have been building on this work and are developing and testing a tutorial based on a relative motion approach to teaching rolling motion. Results from questions on this topic, administered before and after tutorial instruction, suggest that although this approach seems fruitful, additional research is needed to identify what is needed to help many students. The tutorial and results from several questions are presented to illustrate the instructional sequence and ongoing assessment.
