Modeling with Shell Equations

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

A "shell equation" is a partially formed mathematical model that is given to students prior to designing an experimental investigation. When a shell equation is carefully crafted by the instructor, it can allow enough freedom for students to make all of their own inquiry choices, but enough implicit constraints that they are led toward a valuable conclusion.
Maxwell began using this lab design method last year and had a lot of success with it in his classes.

Session Objectives: 

1. Gain strategies to balance content acquisition and inquiry practices in student labs.
2. Design a "shell" equation lab to use in one of your classes.
