What am I looking for? I am looking to see if students remember that a force is either a push or a pull, simple machines can make the work easier, that motion is a change in position of an object with respect to time and acurate examples of force and motion in their lives.
What else am I looking for? I am looking for misconceptions, misunderstandings and ideas that need to be corrected before we can go further.
* I wish I had samples to show, but am home on surgery leave still so have no access to student work. Only a few more days at home....yay.
