Day 2.2 – Negative Positive Acceleration

Screenshot 2014-01-23 14.30.12
Physics 1 began to develop the constant velocity model yesterday by using programmed robots. Today we analyzed, both classes decided this was case should be termed “Negative Positive Acceleration.”  I’ve never used two directions to describe acceleration like this before, but it seemed as if the class understood.  Love it when I can continue to learn new things myself after so many years of doing it the same way!
