Physics I: Mechanics & Energy - Laboratory-Based Physics Content Institute
Supported by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
Wonderful activities and research-based discipline-specific pedagogy
67.5 PDPs for completion of entire institute
$550 of supplies and equipment
Course Descripton: Investigations will involve the study of motion, change in motion, force, work, energy and power. The use of probeware for both computers and hand-held devises and data analysis software will be used extensively to facilitate .learning from nature.. The .minds-on.
pedagogy of Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs), developed at .The Center for Science and Mathematics Teaching. at Tufts University, will be modeled throughout the institute. Teacherswill leave this institute with classroom activities, written resources and an assortment of supplies and equipment (valued at ~$550) to support a technology enhanced physics curriculum.
This will be a collegial, hands-on laboratory-based course that is especially relevant to teachers in grades 7 through 12 and special education staff supporting students who are learning physics concepts.
This physics course will help you develop more competencies in physics and increase your comfort in using technology resources in support of teaching ideas related to the Massachusetts state frameworks standards in high school and middle school physics.
