### Teacher Centered Instructionvs.Student Centered Instruction

• Ex: Lecture
• Guide on the Side: Teacher facilitates student experiences with content.
Teacher-Centered
• Teacher controls content, time, activity
• A lot of material can be covered
• Easy to plan
• Inefficient for many learners
• Low motivation
• Limited opportunities to check progress
Student-Centered
• Tends to be more motivational
• Provides more opportunities to experience content
• Lack of teacher control/organization
• Time & resource dependent
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.
Pendulums
• Make a pendulum
• What variables could students explore with a pendulum?
• What issues would students have to work through?
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
• 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.
