Interactive Engagement in Rotational Motion via Flipped Classroom and 5E Instructional Model

Jhoanne E. Rafon and Voltaire M. Mistades

Abstract—This study determined the effectiveness of using a flipped classroom approach and the 5E instructional model in teaching the Physics topic, Rotational Motion. Using mixed methods, this study involved ten Grade 12 students under the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) track. Data showed that the implementation of the four-week study was successful. The students developed a sense of responsibility, participated in the discussion, and followed instructions as a result of the highly positive and highly interactive learning environment. They overcame the challenges that they faced during the learning process such as: the need for guidance / assistance in order to learn, difficulty in coping with the lesson, lack of internet access, incomplete homework, and lack of confidence in taking part in discussion. Most importantly, the students performed very well across a number of formative assessments. The study showed that the students’ positive attitude towards learning increased as evidenced by homework completion. In a flipped classroom environment, the students invest in their own learning.

Index Terms—Flipped classroom, interactive engagement, rotational motion, 5E instructional model.
