An image is better than a thousand words… and better to experience physical laws than blindly believe them.
Who denies that learning by doing is more productive and effective than learning by heart?
The British Curriculum is based on experimentation as a learning method.
Here we can see a simple example of how Year 7 students learn physical laws of speed / space / time with a simple experiment with a toy car and a ramp:
They conclude the relationship between the slope of the ramp and the speed of the car, which will go faster the higher the ramp has elevation, and they do so by measuring the space traveled and the time spent traveling it, depending on how high the ramp is. ramp. They do slow down the car.
Yes, it is simple. But… I’m sure they’ve understood it and they won’t forget it!!!!!
