After completing some reading and reading questions at home, students scaffold the concepts involved in the question and then they apply equations that they have seen in class to answer complex physics questions. In groups of 2-4, they are able to check with each other their reasoning and check their work until they reach the numerical answer given on the worksheet. After class, each individual student answers a similar question with new values on EdX. This activity benefits the students as it employs a resource model for instructing students, that focuses on guiding students through the reasoning phase of problem-solving rather than correcting final answers.
The aim of the activity is the application of concepts and math to solve complex problems.
