  • Sage on the Stage: Teacher is the primary conduit of information.

    • Ex: Lecture

  • Guide on the Side: Teacher facilitates student experiences with content.


Teacher centered l.jpg

Teacher-Centered

  • Advantages

    • Teacher controls content, time, activity

    • A lot of material can be covered

    • Easy to plan

  • Disadvantages

    • Inefficient for many learners

    • Low motivation

    • Limited opportunities to check progress


Student centered l.jpg

Student-Centered

  • Advantages

    • Tends to be more motivational

    • Provides more opportunities to experience content

  • Disadvantages

    • Lack of teacher control/organization

    • Time & resource dependent


Pendulums l.jpg

Pendulums

  • Prominent position in the history of mathematics and science

  • What have pendulums been used for?

  • In classrooms, pendulums are a common activity for teaching about the control of variables.


Pendulums6 l.jpg

Pendulums

  • Make a pendulum

  • What variables could students explore with a pendulum?

  • What issues would students have to work through?


Pendulums7 l.jpg

Pendulums

  • What variables could students explore with a pendulum?

    • Period

    • Length

    • Weight

    • Angle of release

  • What issues would students have to work through?

    • Holding the point of swing steady

    • Measuring the period

    • Manipulating multiple variables simultaneously


Slide8 l.jpg

Task

  • Create 2 informal plans for instruction

    • Teacher-centered lesson

    • Student-centered lesson

  • Lesson Focus: Pendulums

  • Teaching objective:

    TSSBAT list two everyday items that make use of pendulums.

    TSSBAT identify the variables which affect the period of a pendulum.

    TSSBAT design an experiment to test for the effects of multiple variables on a system.
