Contextualizing Sensor Use in a Full Inquiry Framework: Magnetism

Teachers will never be replaced by technology, in part, because science is a highly collaborative endeavor. Even children learning "alone" typically need a facilitator to help them gauge their own discourse as they build and refine their mental models about the world. Recently, my father and physics teacher educator, Carl Wenning, had an opportunity to work with my nephew as he learned about magnetic fields in the context of his homeschooling studies. What resulted was a learning sequence that students, educators, and curious adults might find useful. My father used Physics Toolbox Sensor Suite in the Magnetometer mode to help my nephew quantify his measurements of magnetic field strength, b
