PHYS 400 - USING DEMO IN PHYSICS TESCHING
Participants will observe a wide variety of demonstrations covering the areas of mechanics, optics, waves, electricity, and magnetism. Resources such as vendors and publications will be discussed. Participants will assemble a portfolio of demonstrations.
PHYS 401 - MECHANICS FOR PHYSICS TEACHERS
A calculus-based laboratory physics course in Newtonian mechanics. Topics include measurement, vectors, kinematics, forces, work and energy, linear and angular momentum, rotation, oscillations, and gravitation. Emphasis on the conceptual foundation of these topics and various methodologies that can be used to teach students with a broad range of abilities. Participants will assemble a portfolio for each unit of study from materials presented or assigned in class.
