AP Annual Conference: Making Sense of Electric Potential

Making Sense of Electric Potential

Jim Vander Weide, Hudsonville High School, MI

I attended this session since electric force, field, potential, and energy are concepts with which students struggle. I have attempted to make connections between these concepts and the corresponding gravitational concepts. I’m interested to see this teacher’s approach.

  • Jim provided slides building an extended analogy between gravitational fields and electric fields as well as other handouts. He would probably be willing to share, and his contact info can be found with a bit of Google-fu šŸ™‚
