#182: Action-Reaction

My educational philosophy is that students learn best when they are actively engaged in physics through activies such as reading, discussing, experimenting, and solving problems. My role is to create more experiences in which my students construct their own understanding of physics and how our universe works. I sue a mixture of low-tech and high-tech in class - whichever is pedagogically appropriate. I am a proponent of Modeling Instruction, the Matter and Interactions curriculum, and Standards Based Grading.

I also maintain a website which collects popular YouTube clips for students to analyze and apply physics called Win/Fail Physics.

While I hate the phrase “Action-Reaction” when used to explain Newton’s 3rd Law, I find it a rather suitable title for a blog about reflections on teaching physics.
