A problem of Dynamics for two linked bodies – a puck and a wedge is examined in this article. Based on the vector diagrams for the forces, speeds and accelerations of the bodies that make up the system, all physical quantities describing the movement are determined. Finally, a quick, short, one-page solution is proposed, without using the laws of dynamics. It is shown that solving such problems is directly related to the concept of Active Learning.
