Physics Education in East and West Germany.
Jonas, Gabriela
This paper describes the conditions of physics instruction and curriculum in the former East Germany and compares aspects of the curriculum to that of the former West Germany. Topics discussed include: teachers' opinions of the curriculum; perceived difficulty of the curriculum by the students; the educational system of Germany; students' opinions of physics; physics programs for gifted students; teaching conditions; and teacher preparation. Three problems in physics education are cited: (1) the need for curriculum development; (2) the lack of impact of physics research on physics instruction; and (3) the lack of trained physics teachers.
