188- Position As Elevation? Difficulties Understanding Position/Time Graphs

Friday, October 28, 2016: 12:30 PM-1:00 PM
103 (Phoenix Convention Center)


Lead Speaker:
Terri L. Kurz


Elementary preservice teachers (PSTs) explored distance/time and position/time graphs using motion detectors. After several explorations, PSTs were asked to analyze the correctness of a misinterpretation describing someone’s change in elevation. PSTs misconceptions will be presented along with recommendations for teaching these graphs.
