A Den of Inquiry, Volume 1

  • Beschrijving
A Den of Inquiry, Volume 1, is a collection of 15 labs for introductory physics. These labs pay special attention to data analysis and mathematical modeling, but they do not use any sensors. Students enter the data directly into a computer or handheld; the book includes files and instructions for Logger Pro and for Fathom Dynamic Data Software™. Each lab includes extensive teacher notes and blackline masters for the students’ predictions, instructions for the lab and for data analysis, and follow-up questions. Many labs also include pre-lab activities, extensions to the labs themselves, and strategies for making the labs more open-ended.

For further inquiry, A Den of Inquiry, Volume 2 is available.
