Thinking about actions to take: Predicting Constant Speed
Teaching Guidance for 11-14
There's a good chance you could improve your teaching if you were to:
- making stronger and continuous links to work on forces
- emphasising the counter-intuitive nature of Newtonian
Work through the Physics Narrative to find these lines of thinking worked out and then look in the Teaching Approaches for some examples of activities.
- drawing similar arrows for those representing forces and those representing movement
- speaking of balanced forces—prefer
the resultant force is equal to 0
These difficulties are distilled from: the research findings; the practice of well-connected teachers with expertise; issues intrinsic to representing the physics well.
