Exploring the Science Practice of Mathematical Thinking to Deepen Physics Understanding
Anchored in a foundational “Patterns & Inquiry” unit, the Patterns Approach to physics engages students in the work of scientists, including generating research questions, designing experiments, collecting data, identifying patterns, and using those patterns to successfully predict future data points. Specifically, in the foundational unit, students become familiar with four basic mathematical patterns—horizontal line, linear, quadratic, and inverse—that form the underpinning of many physics concepts.

In this course, teachers will gain an overview of the Patterns Approach to physics, experience a Patterns-type lesson, and discuss how the Patterns Approach could be implemented in their classroom.
