Instructional Ideas
  • Cross-curricular possibilities between physics / physical science situations (projectile motion) and business (maximizing revenue and profit)
Classroom Considerations
  • Activities are highly dependent on one another, referencing notes and conclusions from previous work (considerations for absences)
  • Dense reading passages on student worksheets might require greater instructional support
  • Learners might need to be encouraged to show more calculations than the space provided allows
  • Exceptionally thorough and detailed activities, teacher notes and worksheets
  • Students are led to consider underlying concepts, not just memorize patterns
  • No teacher keys for student worksheets
  • No final summative assessment provided
