  • Reasoning:The difference between being in space and being on Earth is that there's no air, less gravity and more radiation. But none of these things affect magnets, so a magnet will work just as well in space as it does on Earth.In fact, if they didn't, we'd be in trouble becausemagnets are used in the electric motors on space craft and satellites.
  • Think pair share!

Video Removed to decrease file size please visit - http://bit.ly/1c8tyDn • From Questions to Concepts: Interactive Teaching in Physics • How can you engage your students and be sure they are learning the conceptual foundations of a lecture course? In From Questions to Concepts, Harvard University Professor Eric Mazur introduces Peer Instruction and Just-in-Time teaching -- two innovative techniques for lectures that use in-class discussion and immediate feedback to improve student learning. Using these techniques in his innovative undergraduate physics course, Mazur demonstrates how lectures and active learning can be successfully combined. This video is also available as part of another DVD, Interactive Teaching, which contains advice on using peer instruction and just-in-time teaching to promote better learning.
