Thinking about actions to take(Suggestions)



There's a good chance you could improve your teaching if you were to:

Try these

  • relating the brightness of lamps to what's happening to the current and voltage in each loop
  • using semi-quantitative reasoning and physical models, such as the rope loop
  • Teacher Tip: Work through the Physics Narrative to find these lines of thinking worked out and then look in the Teaching Approaches for some examples of activities.

    Avoid these

  • diving straight into the sums to be done
  • using ad-hoc rules to generate the sums to be done
  • Teacher Tip: These difficulties are distilled from: the research findings; the practice of well-connected teachers with expertise; issues intrinsic to representing the physics well.
