Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Choose a discussion topic that uses physics topics covered in this module. Consider one of the following as good topic “starters” for discussion: (i) What were your “Aha!” moments as you worked through the material? How does this module’s content relate to current events? (iv) Did you more deeply explore a topic only covered lightly in the course materials? What did you discover? (v) Do not post homework problems.
Create an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that ties one or more of the module’s concepts to the real world. The paragraphs should address the following points:
Paragraph 1: Describe the physics concepts/topics you have chosen to discuss from this week’s module, including, as appropriate, a reference to this week’s readings on the topics, terminology with definitions, units, conventions, etc.
Paragraph 2: Summarize one or more impacts of the physics concepts to everyday life or aviation.
Paragraph 3: Either: (i) provide a real example, e.g., from an article or documented report of the aviation impact of this physics concept, or, (ii) give “your take” on the relevance and importance of this topic from your own perspective, by providing personal points of view or related experiences.
Length. There is no set minimum word requirement. However, there is a set maximum word requirement – confine your initial post to 500 words. Include a graphic, video, or image that helps visualize some aspect of your answer.
