Real-World Physics Discussion
Let’s Talk About It!
In this course, we will engage in graded discussions that focus on “the real world” by applying the physics concepts we are learning to both everyday lives and to aviation.
After completing the readings and concept-related activities in this module, you will be prepared to engage in this discussion.
Initial Post Instructions and Requirements:
- Choose a discussion topic that uses physics topics covered in this module. Consider one of the following as good topic “starters” for discussion: (i) What was your “Aha!” moments as you worked through the material? (ii) How does this module’s content relate to your professional career? Personal life? (iii) How does this module’s content relate to current events? (iv) Did you more deeply explore a topic only covered lightly in the course materials? What did you discover? (v) What concepts (learning objectives) did you struggle with? What resources helped you overcome this hurdle? Do not post homework problems.
Create an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that ties one or more of the module’s concepts to the real world. The paragraphs should address the following points:
- Post substantive responses to at least two of your classmates’ posts by midnight Eastern Time on the seventh day of the module week. At least one of the responses must be to a topic you did not choose for your initial post. Each response should add thoughtfully and substantively to the discussion, by covering two or more of the following areas: (i) elaborating with additional factual details; (ii) providing an alternate perspective; (iii) sharing a related experience; or, (iv) asking a related question.
For your initial post only: After making your initial post to the discussion forum, submit a file containing your initial post in the assignment on the next page of the module for a Turnitin check of the originality of your work. You must both post your initial post to this discussion forum and upload your initial post on the next page. Your initial post will not receive credit unless it is also submitted to the Module 1 Initial Post Originality Check assignment.
