CVPM Packet—now with QR codes!
I have embedded my complete CVPM (constant velocity particle model) packet below. 99% of the credit for this goes to Kelly O’Shea, and her ingenious revision and paring down of the original modeling materials.
I’ve added a few things to Kelly’s orignial, including the section on computational modeling, challenge assignments at the end of the unit, and ideas for possible capstones, which I’ve written about previously.
One other new innovation I’ve added are links and QR Codes, which seem to be the latest rage sweeping the edtech crowd. In this case, I think they might be useful, as I’ve embedded answers and hints behind a QR code, and in other parts, links to videos. If all my students had mobile devices, I think this could allow for some interesting multimedia based questions. My one suggestion when using QR codes is to keep in mind that not all students have phones with QR code readers, so be sure to also include bit.ly shortened links next to the codes.
