Physics Lectures and Laboratories. A Model To Improve Preservice Elementary Science Teacher Development. Volume II.
A group of scientists and science educators has developed and pilot tested an integrated physical science program designed for preservice elementary school teachers. This document includes the syllabus and class materials for the Physics block of the physical science courses developed by the group. Included are diagrams, lecture notes, homework problems, laboratory exercises and evaluation materials to be used with the course. Topics include: (1) measurement; (2) motion; (3) Newton's Laws; (4) dynamics; (5) the nature of force; (6) work and energy; (7) gas laws and heat transfer; (8) electricity; (9) electrical circuits; (10) electromagnetism; (11) magnets and motors; (12) reflection and refraction; (13) interference; (14) electrons and atoms; (15) lenses; and (16) radioactivity.
