Patterns Physics: Introduction to Unit 4:
Engineer a Shoe (Force, Impulse, & Momentum) + Problems of Practice

Workshop Details

Date(s): October 17, 2019
Time: 8:30AM-3:30PM
Place: Lane ESD Main Campus (directions)
Presenter: Bradford Hill, Physics and CTE Engineering Teacher at Mountainside High School, Beaverton SD, Oregon
Audience: High school physical science and physics science teachers; science/math/STEM teachers
Capacity: 30 participants
Fees: Free for Lane County high school science teachers, $150/day for teachers outside of Lane County
Goals:
  • Live the experience of Unit 4: Engineer a Shoe (Force, Impulse, Momentum).
  • Engage in an experience that will allow you to make instructional shifts to better serve our students.
  • Discuss Problems of Practice you have encountered as you have implemented Patterns Physics. Collaboratively problem solve with colleagues and facilitators.
Description: This workshop aims to engage participants in a project around the engineering and design of a shoe. In the workshop, participants will live the experience that a student would, and will take and analyze data in order to make data-informed decisions about a shoe design. Participants will learn about a learning progression that targets NGSS performance expectations about force, impulse, and momentum.

Additionally, Problems of Practice will be the focus of discussion and collaborative problem solving and actionable next steps will be found.
