Worksheets

The questions in the worksheets are designed to get the students talking about physics. There are some standard calculation problems in the worksheets - but not that many. These types of questions tend to dominate physics education. Other types of thinking and communicating that are present in the worksheets are:

1) Illustrating an answer by demonstrating something with equipment.

2) Explaining something to your neighbour, a friend who isn't in physics or a keen 8-year old.

3) Explaining with a diagram and very few words.

4) Describing some similar physics in everyday life.

5) Explaining a technology in terms of the physics involved.

6) Recognizing patterns in data.

Some of the questions are particularly rich and worth taking the time to explore with whiteboards. These are indicated.
