FORCES + MOTION + GRAVITY - FLIPPED CLASSROOM:

FLIPPED CLASSROOM is a form of blended learning in which students learn content online by watching video lectures, usually at home. What used to be called 'homework' is now done in class with teachers and students collaborating, discussing and solving questions.

In a 'flipped' project, teacher interaction with students is more personalised. The emphasis is on guidance and mutual discovery rather than lecturing. More information and resources are available for teachers in the WPS Teacher WIKI.

The starting point for this particular 'flipped' activity is an on-line science QUIZ:

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS & TEACHERS FIRST COMPLETE THE ON-LINE QUIZ BEFORE VIEWING THE STUDENT WIKI (THIS PAGE!), THE FLIP CONTENT OR THE TEACHER WIKI CONTENT.

  • When the QUIZ has been completed, students are sent results by email.
  • In the email, there is a link for more information, activities and experiments to help the student understand more about each question and the answer.
  • Students are encouraged to investigate, ask questions and design their own experiments.
