Pressure and Buoyancy

Uncovering Student Ideas in Physical Science- 45 Force and Motion Assessment Probes (Volume 1)

This book includes 45 force and motion related probes (K-12 +) that can be used as an application with a force and motion related full topic study. The probes provide a source of student work to examine for understanding of key ideas (CTS Section III) as well as evidence of commonly held alternative conceptions (CTS Section IV). In addition, the introductory chapter is a nice read to use in supplementing the full topic study.
