Day 17: Best class ever

I wrote about it a ton on my main blog, but today was a pretty special day in my honors physics class. My students blew me away with their ability to run a physics discussion and think deeply about some difficult problems.

Here’s just one small 2 minute video excerpt:

And here’s a comment that blew my mind from a student after class:

This class was the first time that a student’s comment has ever changed my mind in discussion.

I think this student was pretty surprised to see this happen in physics class, which seems to be about right answers, rather than the many other discussion based classes that are the core of the other disciplines.
