Live Physics Photo

Not still photographs, but too short to be considered movies, these “live photos” are designed for analysis in a computer. Positions of objects in the video frame can be measured by pointing a mouse and clicking. The data can be graphed, analyzed in spreadsheets, compared to theoretical models, and even used to display vectors or points superimposed on the original video.

different ideas for grading – very interesting – compare with below

Connexions is:



a place to view and share educational material made of small knowledge chunks called modules that can be organized as courses, books, reports, etc. Anyone may view- free textbooks – Rice U

tests of concepts and retakes

As opposed to receiving a percentage grade, a student will receive a mastery score between one and four for each learning objective assessed on the quiz.

4 – Mastery – Complete Understanding of the Material – No errors

3 – Acceptable – Clear understanding of the Material – Minor Conceptual Errors

2 – Basic – Basic and Simplistic Understanding of the Material – Significant Conceptual Errors

1 – Incomplete – Little Understanding of the Material – Major Conceptual Errors

receive an A quiz score, a student must maintain a 3.5 average with no objective below a 3. To receive an B quiz score, a student must maintain a 3 average with no objective below a 2.5. To receive an C quiz score, a student must maintain a 2.5 average with no objective below a 2. To receive an D quiz score, a student must maintain a 2 average with no objective below a 1.5. If a student meets the average requirement for a grade but has one objective below the lower limit, they will be dropped a letter grade. For example a 3.6 average with one 2.5 would receive a B.
