OVERVIEW

The aim of the course "physics laboratory" is  to introduce the first experimental elements  based on the measurement and the ability to write a report on the experiment performed. The chosen topics are very general and can be useful also for the design of educational courses and include: force, Archimedes' principle, light vision and color, formation of images.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

the students will acquire skills for the critical analysis of teaching courses with physics topics for nursery and primary schools and to design original educational courses that take account results in physics education research.

TEACHING METHODS

Students will be engaged in performing laboratory experiments. The experiments will be performed in groups, possibly formed by not more than 4 students. Each group will then produce a report outlining the obtained results.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The topics of lab experiments include:

a) Force (linear elongation of a spring and  calibration of a dynamometer);

b) Archimedes' principle (determination of the upward buoyant force, calculation of irregular volumes);

c) light and color vision (properties of a light source and its spectrum, decomposition of light, additive and subtractive color synthesis);

d) image formation (principle of lenses and composition of two lenses).

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

Handouts will be given to students for the preparation of lab experiments

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

write a report on lab experiments

interview to describe the work done 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

For the written part, the lab report for each lab experiment  performed in group will be evaluated.

For the oral session, the student should discuss about the lab experiments.
