This blog can easily turn into 180 days of whiteboarding. But the whiteboarding never really gets old. So here we go.
One highlight of this set of discussions was a student exclaiming that he had thought he’d understood it, but now he was thinking back through the entire question because of what was put up on a board (which included an intentional mistake). He figured out that he did indeed understand it. The slowing down and demanding reasoning for the work (even your own work) is definitely one of (in my opinion) the best parts of whiteboarding with mistakes.
We have one more board to finish in our next class. Then I’m hoping to do a practicum with them. Then we’ll start investigating oscillating particles, working through an energy transfer lens.
