Visualizing and Conceptualizing Linear Momentum
  Location: HC 3053
  Date: Monday, Aug.1

  Abstract: Linear momentum is one of the concepts that students have the most difficulty understanding. Beyond applying a simple equation or a memorized result for specific scenarios, students seem to forget about using linear momentum and do not have a "feel" of what it is. This presentation will show some simple in-class questions to pose to students with quick activities that immediately demonstrate the results. In addition, a possible way to look at linear momentum from a conceptual/visualize point of view with extensions into ideas of energy will be presented.
