Today in class students took a quizizz assessment to get a feel for how much effort they are putting into gathering and processing information about motion and forces. Their conclusion was that they need to put in MORE effort to gather information and study that information.
Most missed questions were about: Newtons Laws, application of mass and velocity definitions, and friction. There needs to be more thought about what motion actually is, and the forces that allow it to occur.
We watched most of a great video about the physics of car crashes which showed some of the formulas of which students should be aware - they help with understanding the application of the physical concepts.
