This activity for conceptual physics asks students to predict the appearance of distance and velocity graphs for different types of walking motion, then verify their predictions with a motion sensor. If all members of the cooperative group predict correctly, the group moves to the next problem. If not, the group's task is to analyze the error to see what went wrong, then write statements about how to modify incorrect ideas to avoid the same mistake in the future. For accompanying homework problems: Catching Mistakes: Motion Graphs Homework (UMPERG) This resource was developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group (UMPERG). It is based on Tools for Scientific Thinking, a microcomputer-based laboratory curriculum for student development of concepts and intuition in the laboratory.
