Preliminary Study of Impulse Momentum Diagrams.
In this paper, we present a new representation to help students learn about momentum, impulse and conservation of momentum. We call this representation an Impulse‐Momentum Diagram. We include a description of these diagrams as well as examples on how instructors can use them in the classroom. Next, we present preliminary quantitative and qualitative data on a study where students used these representations to learn the previous physics concepts. Our final analysis shows how students benefit from these representations.
