MODULE 1: Data and Measurement
Meet the course team and an introduction to the course content and navigation. We look at how speed is calculated using a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging).
MODULE 2: Estimation and Measurement
We investigate the different ways in which we might perform an estimation and then use estimation to solve a variety of problems.
MODULE 3: Validity of Evidence
We explore the difference between quantitative and qualitative evidence and develop our understanding of validity as it relates to evidence.
MODULE 4: Evidence and Opinion
Learn the important difference between evidence and opinion, and test that understanding by conducting an experiment.
MODULE 5: Misconceptions
Through a series of investigations and experiments we look at how misconceptions are formed and how to construct a better understanding of the facts surrounding a common misconception.
MODULE 6: Modelling
We use data from a number of Olympic and World records to develop models and feature a graphing tool to better understand data modelling.
MODULE 7: Prediction and Extrapolation
We continue to use Olympic and World records to move beyond modelling in order to extrapolate information and make predictions.
MODULE 8: Synthesis and Application
Finally, we synthesise the concepts covered in all 7 modules to perform an experiment related to the calculation of gravity.
