About a week ago I was preparing with a student for a quiz in the Honors Physics class at Carmel High School.
The class of Meeps and Moops.
We went over the kinematic equations, what acceleration means, vectors & direction, etc.
He seemed fairly comfortable the day before the quiz.
But then on the day of the quiz, it didn’t go so well….
A few of the questions were multiple choice. He got some, but missed some as well. Those problems didn’t have a lot of work involved, but you needed to understand the material pretty well.
However, for the later problems on the quiz, you needed to know how to use multiple equations and calculate what was going on in motion problems.
We went through that material in more depth and I had him do some problems over again after we had gone through them on a blank sheet of paper.
For the makeup quiz, he got 6/6. Which got averaged out with the previous score.
