That was a very creative way of teaching physics. Physics is such a difficult subject to teach, in my opinion, so the fact that you were able to make fun, entertaining, and interesting, while delivering the point is very impressive.

I think this is a great use of technology to teach a lesson.  The format is clean and easy to follow. You switch from video to reading which will keep kids somewhat entertained.  I like that you have a lesson and ten a quiz and a chance to try again.  I also like that you make it so students are penalized for simply rushing through and guessing the answer.  The format encourages students to actually learn and pay attention.  Switching the questions when they get one wrong is also a great tool because they again must show they read/watched/or learned what they were supposed to.  You also scaffold the lesson well from teaching a formula to applying a formula.  Great Job!
