This course is aimed at helping teachers successfully run experiments for the new Year 12 Physics syllabus. We will be examining a variety of experiments including how to use the equipment appropriately and safely. Opportunities for Depth Studies will be shared and performed. In addition, we will reflect on the progress of teaching the new Year 11 syllabus. The activities incorporated will cover the new content, in particular:
- Angular Frequency
- Malus’ Law
- Millikan’s Experiment
- Depth Studies
This course is best done in conjunction with Year 12 Theory for the New Physics Syllabus.
