Getting Ready for the New Generation of K-12 Physics Standards
  Location: SS Ballroom ABC
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 1:15 PM -2:15 PM
  Author: Patricia Heller, University of Minnesota
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: Compared to the current K-12 science standards, the new research-based physics standards: (a) have more explicit statements of the physics principles and concepts students should understand; (b) require more application of these principles and concepts to real world situations; (c) require increasing intellectual sophistication and higher levels of abstraction as grade levels progress from elementary to middle school to high school, and (d) reflect a current (modern) view of physics. These differences will impact how we prepare future teachers. This presentation outlines how the new standards will affect the physics content of courses for teachers.
