Semester 2 – Day 45

20140325-203552.jpg

Today is a little one-on-one tutoring with a student. we looked at a two box system pushed with a single force. my student seemed confused that the second box only had three forces on it. When we were able to discuss her confusion, she finally concluded that the only reason she expected to see four forces was that she had always drawn 4 forces on boxes. her exact words were “Thats so lame my brain just told me that.”
