New York 2017

PTRAs Steve Henning (physfsh@gmail.com) and George Amann presented a two hour workshop on Monday June 12 from 5:30-7:30 in conjunction with the Math for America professional development.  The topic was TIPERS.
TIPERS provide students with tasks that address physical ideas and principles in a variety of ways. Some of these are Ranking Tasks, Bar Chart Tasks, Linked Multiple Choice Tasks, Working Backwards Tasks, Predict and Explain Tasks and many others. These varied tasks are designed to help students learn the important concepts and principles of physics while providing a conceptual base upon which students can solve physics problems. Participants received two free books: the latest TIPERS Manual and the Ranking Tasks manual.
