Objectives of the Course
In conjunction with the Institute Of Physics, we will be running 6 workshops for KS3 & 4 Physics teachers. The topics are:
Forces : forces arrows, types of forces, balanced and unbalanced forces and Newton’s Laws of motion
Electricity: the use of models when teaching electricity, fault finding when teaching circuits, the use of multimeters
Energy: moving from energy types to stores. Accounting for the energy we use.
Electromagnetism ;starting with a recap of magnetism and going on to cover Motors Generators and Transformers
Waves covering Sound and the Electromagnetic Spectrum
