Physics 200, 300 Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This guide, developed for the physics 200, 300 program in Manitoba, is designed to articulate with previous science courses; provide concepts, processes, and skills which will enable students to continue in physics-related areas; and relate physics to practical applications in everyday life. It includes a program overview (with program goals and objectives for physics 200 and physics 300), information for implementing the program, and unit design charts for physics 200 and 300 core and optional topics. Physics 200 core topics include linear kinematics, vectors, motion (Newton's first and second laws of motion and circular motion), momentum and impulse, and work and energy; optional topics include solar energy, fluids and hydraulic devices, heat and energy conservation, and earth and sky motions. Physics 300 core topics include waves, static electricity, fields and forces, basic electrical circuits, basic magnetism, electromagnetic induction and alternating current; optional topics include sound, light, sunburn, earthquake prediction, alternative energy sources, science/technology/society, and special relativity. Provided for each of these topic areas is the rationale for its inclusion into the course, recommended time, and objectives with notes to the teacher. These notes include references to chapters in physics textbooks, comments about demonstrations, instructions for experiments, or other pertinent information. (JN)
