Applying clustering to statistical analysis of student reasoning about two-dimensional kinematics

We use clustering, an analysis method not presently common to the physics education research community, to group and characterize student responses to written questions about two-dimensional kinematics. Previously, clustering has been used to analyze multiple-choice data; we analyze free-response data that includes both sketches of vectors and written elements. The primary goal of this paper is to describe the methodology itself; we include a brief overview of relevant results. (less)

In this simulation, the path of an object in centripetal motion can be followed. The user can add an angular acceleration, and graph the particle's position, velocity, and forces acting on it. The vectors menu offers eight choices plus force components to display a variety of velocity and acceleration vectors. This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics). (less)

In this activity (page 1 of PDF), learners will construct a simple spinning top out of a circle of construction paper, a film canister lid, and a bamboo skewer. Then the real fun begins when learners experiment with the design and materials to see who can make the longest-spinning spinner. Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV: Pet Handedness. (less)
