APP1 Dynamics

Reverse Force Questions
Noah Segal


This worksheet is inspired by NTIPERS, the "Physics Jeopardy" questions developed by Van Heuvelen and Etkina, and Matt Greenwolfe's goal-less problems. Either a force diagram, vector addition diagram, or set of equations is provided. Students brainstorm scenarios for which the provided representation would apply and fill out the other representations. I use it in my AP C Mechanics class, but it requires no calculus.
