Teaching Physical Science and Problem Solving
Able to teach concepts and problem solving at the high school and advanced placement level in astronomy, classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, quantum mechanics and special relativity.
Classroom Management and Lab Design
Manage high school classroom in teaching setting. Direct high school student labs, and build simple lab equipment and demonstrations.
Physics Theory and Application
Apply principles at an introductory college level from the primary physical theories (classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, special relativity, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and optics) to solve representative problems.
Students will be able to design, develop and administer inquiry-based science units.
Addressing Student Diversity
Able to adapt teaching to adolescents and students with different cultural backgrounds.
