Drawing on force ideas for kinematic reasoning in introductory physics
written by Tra Huynh, Anne T. Alesandrini, Lauren C. Bauman, Olin Sorby, and Amy D. Robertson
In this paper, we identify some of the connections students make between force ideas and kinematics concepts, in their responses to kinematics questions. We coded 887 written responses to three different kinematics questions and identified patterns where students draw on force to make sense of kinematics concepts such as acceleration, velocity, and trajectory. We found that students draw on force frequently, in addition to other kinematics reasoning, in resourceful and context-dependent ways. Our findings suggest that instruction may be able to productively make use of students' understanding of force to support kinematics learning.
