Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, perspective teachers will be able to project learning paths in Physics, differentiated between pre-school and primary school, based on explorative and experimental activities in the fields of kinematics, dynamics, universal Gravitation, forces and their measurement, friction, equilibrium, liquids, electrical phenomena, light and vision, thermal phenomena, magnetic and electromagnetic phenomena, physics of sounds. The laboratory modulus is part of the course and of the examination. Program. The course introduces in explorative and experiential modalities the following subjects, which are illustrated in detail in the slides on the e-learning website, differentiated between pre-school and primary school: elements of kinematics, the three principles of dynamics, gravity weight and universal gravitation, friction, forces and equilibrium, liquids, thermal phenomena, electric phenomena, magnetic and electromagnetic phenomena, sounds, light and vision.

Syllabus

The course introduces in explorative and experiential modalities the following subjects, which are illustrated in detail in the slides on the e-learning website:
elements of kinematics, the three principles of dynamics, gravity weight and universal gravitation, friction, forces and equilibrium, liquids, thermal phenomena, electric phenomena, magnetic and electromagnetic phenomena, sounds, light an vision, work and energy.

Assessment methods and criteria

Students are requested to produce a portfolio treating all the topics of the course with the specifications "knowledge of the teacher" and "doing with children"; a didactic project on one of the topics treated in the course; and two worksheets concerning the laboratorial activities.
The examination includes an oral discussion.
Details on the examination and deadlines are presented in the e-learning site.
