Physics 20-30 Background, Exemplars and Resources.
Hackman, Desiree; And Others
This document is designed to provide practical information for teaching the Physics 20-30 Program of Studies. The first section provides an overview of Physics 20, explaining the program philosophy and the selection and sequencing of topics. The use of concept connections and teaching a course around the science themes are described, as well as how the program articulates with the junior and senior high science courses. Section two contains four units. Unit one, "Kinematics and Dynamics", looks at the relationship among acceleration, displacement, velocity, and time. Unit two, "Circular Motion and Gravitation", emphasizes change, energy, and systems. Unit three, "Mechanical Waves" focuses on resonance. Unit four, "Light", emphasizes diversity and energy. For Physics 30, unit four (one unit) presents "Nature of Matter." The final section provides detailed information on a great variety of resources that support the implementation of this program.
