Abstract Title: Starting an Inquiry Based Laboratory Exercise and the Science Practices
Abstract: This presentation will take participants through the introduction of an actual pre-lab session for a mid-year exercise that introduces students to elements of springs while using pre-developed concepts from kinematics, dynamics, and energy storage and transfer. After the introduction, key highlights from the AP Physics 1 and Physics 2 Science Practices will be identified that students would use within the context of such an experience. Connections to future units in oscillatory motion and mechanical waves from the AP Physics 1/2 Curriculum Framework will also be identified.
Abstract Type: Symposium Talk
