Modeling and Physics Thinking Strategies

  1. The student will plan and conduct investigations using experimental design processes. (PH.1b, c, d, f)
    1. Instruments are selected and used to extend observations and make measurements.
    2. Information is recorded and presented in an organized format.
    3. The limitations of the experimental apparatus and design are recognized.
    4. Models and simulations are used to visualize and explain phenomena, to make predictions from hypotheses, and to interpret data.
  2. Students will construct a Particle Model.
