Description:

This page contains a full lab procedural on the topic of Newton's First and Third Laws of Motion and force-motion-vector diagrams. Special attention is focused on the "touch-body" diagram of representing motion. The lab, appropriate for introductory physics, is intended for use in cooperative learning groups. Socratic Dialog-Inducing (SDI) Labs are "guided construction" labs featuring hands-on experiments in introductory mechanics. They are carefully designed to promote the Socratic Method of inquiry, in which oppositional viewpoints are openly discussed to stimulate rational thinking. The contradictory view is often presented by a master teacher or, in this case, by the author of the lab manual. The effectiveness of this method in promoting student crossover to the the Newtonian World has been demonstrated by rigorous pre-post testing.
