Title Electric Field Hockey Post-Game Analysis
Description This worksheet asks conceptual questions about electric fields, direction of motion, mass, and charges. It was used after the students played around with the electric field hockey sim in groups with the field lines "on". Students had not yet been introduced to fields, but had instruction on electrostatic forces as well as Newton's Laws. I used this in three classes of physics students in a good public school district. I found that the hardest part for them to retain was field lines (including direction) and what they represented. The worksheet and solutions page are included as .doc and .pdf for convenience. Enjoy!
