Getting Ready for the New Generation of K-12 Physics Standards
  Location: SS Ballroom ABC
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 1:15PM - 2:15PM
  Author: Patricia Heller, University of Minnesota

  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.

New Physics Standards in Texas
  Location: SS Ballroom ABC
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 1:15PM - 2:15PM
  Author: Jill Marshall,
512 232-9685, marshall@mail.utexas.edu
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: As of 2009 Texas physics teachers are teaching under a revised set of standards for what students should be able to do, the revised Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS for physics. Although changes to the TEKS were "evolutionary not revolutionary," a new structure organizing the topics was imposed and a new emphasis was placed on conceptual understanding. New standards relating to optics and nuclear physics were added.
