Day 17: Why we Whiteboard


My colleague Ben shared this awesome mistake with me today. This is why we Whiteboard; I don’t know that a single person would have guessed a student would make this mistake without the significant formative assessment that is whiteboarding.

Note that the problem was a written description, as shown at the top of the note, and the mistake is everything below that. Consistent!

    Thanks for posting this. I projected it for my classes today. At first they has some critiques for the number of dots on the motion map, but felt that the v vs. t graph was good. Then they saw the mistake and described how to correct it. It brought some nice discourse at the beginning of the class.
