Before our discussion about parallel pedagogy, please see
- The “welcome to PHYS 141” Email that Jen Klay and Pete Schwartz sent to the students the week before class began to let them know this was going to be a different kind of physics class.
- the intro video that all students see before the first day of class, and look at chapter.
- Please see the syllabus for this quarter’s 121 class. In particular, please read the rubric by which all evaluated questions are graded.
- Please see the “4 lenses of mechanics” video, and read sections 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 in the 121 textbook/workbook.
- Please see the gyroscopic stabilization video and read section 7.5 in the 121 textbook/workbook to get an idea of how things develop later in the quarter.
- If you’re interested in one more study indicating that the Socratic method is more effective than clear, concise lecturing, please see this video by PER Verritassium’s Derek Muller, which our students see after the first day of class.
