Product Description


By: Victor Sampson, Todd L. Hutner, Daniel FitzPatrick, Adam LaMee, and Jonathon Grooms 


Physics teachers—great news! Now there’s a guide to Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) especially for you. Like the NSTA Press best-sellers for high school biology and chemistry, this book helps you build your students’ science proficiency. It makes labs more authentic by teaching physics students to work the way scientists do—by identifying questions, developing models, collecting and analyzing data, generating arguments, and critiquing and revising reports.

Argument-Driven Inquiry in Physics, Volume 1 focuses on mechanics and has two parts. The first part describes the ADI instructional model and the components of ADI lab investigations. The second part provides 23 field-tested labs covering a wide variety of topics related to forces and interactions, energy, work, and power. Some investigations are introductory labs that expose students to new content; others are application labs to help students try out a theory, law, or unifying concept. All are easy to use, thanks to teacher notes, student handouts, and checkout questions, and all align with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards. You’ll find this book to be a one-stop source of expertise, advice, and investigations that will take the intimidation out of using ADI in physics instruction.
