Physics and Basketball
Previous physics education research about student expectations revealed that after physics instruction students perceived physics phenomena disconnected from their real-life experiences. Unless the materials is an examples that they see as relevant or directly related to student experience. This is a serious problem in terms of students’ attitudes in learning physics. The goal of this presentation is to show you how to link Physics to Basketball problems and applications. Relating Physics to the game you love will assist you in relating formulas and problems that are unrelated to basketball.
