Force and Motion Assessment Probes-A Must Have

I finally got my copy of "Uncovering Student Ideas in Physical Science" by Page Keeley and Rand Harrington. This is a must have for teachers who teach physical science. I started using it in my classes to find out what students really know about forces and motion--the real-life scenarios really make students think deeper about what they are learning and helps me to know what gaps I need to fill. I like the way the book identifies the probes according to grade level and offers suggestions for further instruction and assessment. I particularly like the way it explains what answer is the best choice - very easy to understand. I wish I could afford the other books in the series.
