In this course, we will engage in graded discussions that focus on “the real world” by applying the physics concepts we are learning to both everyday life and to aviation.
After completing the readings and concept-related activities in the above sections of the module—including the module Experiment, you will be prepared to engage in this discussion.
Initial Post Instructions and Requirements:
Choose a discussion topic (DOCX). Download discussion topic (DOCX).
Formulate an organized, clearly worded, and succinct initial post that substantively covers all discussion paragraph points stated for your chosen topic. Because your initial post will be scored on the degree to which you meet these standards, there is no set minimum word requirement. However, there is a set maximum word requirement – confine your initial post to 500 words. Remember that we are all reading each other’s posts, and one that is succinctly written is more likely to be read and responded to, thus furthering our discussion on that topic.
Include at least one graphic, video, or image that visually adds to some aspect of your post – as they say, pictures are worth 1000 words!
Post your initial post by the fourth day of the module week. You will not be able to see any posts until you post your initial post.
