This page contains ten Peer Instruction problems on kinematics, designed to be presented in the classroom. Each problem involves a question, usually multiple choice, that is carefully constructed to engage student difficulties with fundamental concepts. In the first step, students consider the problem individually and contribute their answers using personal response systems. Students then collaborate with team members and vote again on the correct response. Topics covered include displacement, velocity, average velocity, speed, and interpreting position and velocity graphs.
This problem set is part of the Physics Suite collection, containing sample problems, peer instruction problems, and alternative homework sets.
SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE for background information on the Peer Instruction teaching method and tips for implementing it in the classroom.
