Physics By Inquiry: Mechanics
Constructivist Learning Model
Teach and learn physics using constructivist inquiry based modes of instruction.
Physics Teaching Using Technology
Be able to deliver laboratory instruction to students using only meter sticks and stopwatches (low tech data collection) and also using electronic probes (high tech data collection).
Use of Video and Computer Data collection techniques.
Development and Experience with of a Suite of Secondary Scho
Leave class with a suite of about 15 labs that they have completed and written up from the constructivist teacher model that they can use immediately in the 7-12 secondary physics classroom.
Development of Physics Pedagogic Teaching Skills
Develop teaching skills in using projects, practicums and lab experimentation that can be transferred to secondary schools when they are teachers.
