Most Missed Questions of 2014 Review and Answers

From my review quizzes, which spanned almost 300 of the 966 MC questions since 2002. (I had many versions. I don't make the kids do 300 questions!) I compiled a list of the 40 most missed questions (by my students anyway) in order.

I also made a youtube video explaining how I think about each question with a little review snuck in.

The most missed topics by my students were

Longitudinal Waves
Min and Max values of Vector Addition
Equilibrant
Energy Problems with Internal Energy
Diffraction (slit size/wavelength relationship)
Momentum/Inelastic Collisions
Displacement from Area of VT
Estimation (of Weight Force)

Thanks to Dan Hosey for creating this.

Diagnostic Guide for the June 2013 Regents Physics Exam

I use these to help students prepare for the Regents Exam each spring. Students take the exam, which is scored by the instructor, then students are directed to use the diagnostic guide to determine the percent of questions they answered correctly under each topic. This information is then used to develop a personalized action plan to help each student focus their review efforts in areas that will return the biggest "bang for the buck."
