Learning Physics While Practicing Science
  Location: Cramer Hall 201
  Date: Saturday, Jul.17
  Time: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
  Price: Member: $75.00
Nonmember: $100.00
  Sponsor: Committee on Physics in Undergraduate Education
  Co-Sponsor(s): Committee on Teacher Preparation
  Leader(s): Eugenia Etkina,
  Co-Leader(s): Alan Van Heuvelen David Brookes
  Description Participants will learn how to modify introductory physics courses to help students acquire a good conceptual foundation, apply this knowledge effectively in problem solving, and develop the science process abilities needed for real life work. We provide tested curriculum materials including: The Physics Active Learning Guide with 30 or more activities per textbook chapter for use with any textbook in lectures, recitations, and homework; (b) a CD with over 200 videotaped experiments and associated questions for use in lectures, recitations, laboratories, and homework; and (c) a set of labs with inexpensive equipment that can be used to construct, test, and apply concepts to solve practical problems. During the workshop we will illustrate how to use the materials not only in college and high school physics courses but also in courses for future physics teachers to have an explicit emphasis on using the processes of science and various cognitive strategies. Please bring your own laptop to the workshop. Make sure it has QuickTime installed. If you do not own a computer you will be paired with somebody who does.
