I sent this to my brother (physics teacher), too. Here's his response:

Ugh I saw that and realized that there were too many comments for anything I said to be effective. So I wonder if the teacher is counting Sauron as correct since he's consistent within his own coordinate system (up is negative, down is positive) or if he's counting him as wrong to try to force the kids to conform to the conventional coordinate system...

Most heartbreaking comment: "There's not enough information because the teddy bear goes up first before it goes down, so not enough information is given to solve the problem".

I can't teach 'em all...
