Modeling Activities To Teach Impulse and Momentum
Date: October 5, 2013
Time: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm
Professional Development: 8 Hours
Cost: There is no cost for the workshop.
Description: The participants will take on the role of high school physics students as the workshop instructors lead the participants through a series of modeling activities/labs that can be used to teach impulse and momentum (SOL PH.1-3 and PH.6). This will be a hands-on workshop and the participants will leave with activities/labs, student handouts, and instructional notes that they can immediately implement into their classrooms to enrich their curriculum.
Registration: Contact Joe Mahler, firstname.lastname@example.org, by email to register. Registration will be first come first served and space is limited to 20 participants. We usually fill up early!
