4 Peer Instruction Pedagogy [LUMAT: Research and Practice in Math, Science & Technology Education, 2013. 1(5): p. 525-544.] 4 Technology for Peer Instruction

In near future smart phones, i-pads and other devices will replace clickers, but the basic pedagogy will remain the same 4 Peer Instruction Example 1 Find the magnitude of the force a 60 kg person has to pull the rope with in order to

pull himself upwards with a constant speed. A. B. C. D. E. 600 N 450 N 300 N 200 N
