After working through some of the introduction activities for the balanced forces model, we started whiteboarding the packet problems yesterday. We had a bit of a rough start, but a great discussion, as we struggled with the idea that constant velocity motion is due to balanced forces. I also realized that students had some really good questions about friction that we haven’t yet investigated. Next year, I may add a friction investigation before we start tackling these problems.
