Day 8: First Whiteboard Presentations!Posted: September 5, 2012
Today was my first time implementing white boarding in my physics class. I will be blogging about this more extensively later on my normal blog, but the one good decision that I made (which I agonized over!) was to not give the students guidance on how to collect or represent their data. Though I said nothing about best fit lines or using an equation to make predictions, I had 2-3 groups (out of 6-7) in each class who did something along those lines, exposing their peers to graphical representations along with mathematical best fit representations, without the need for me to preach it. Awesome.
