We are adding new material to our very well received “advanced higher on a budget” and advanced higher physics experiments” sessions to form a new 2-day “Support for Practical Activities in Advanced Higher Physics” course.
The course will be extremely beneficial to those new to teaching advanced higher physics. All activities will be linked to the ‘mandatory content’ and ‘suggested activities’ as described in the SQA AH physics course specification document. It will also be of interest to those with more experience teaching advanced higher.
We will look at a wide selection of experiments (many of which can be done cheaply, with very simple equipment) across the areas of rotational motion, waves and electromagnetism to include:
the compound pendulum, resonance, SHM, water stream experiment, capacitor and inductor experiments, air cell experiment, newton’s rings /air fringes experiment and magnetic field strength experiment.
During your two days at SSERC, there will be time to collect data from each experiment. We will provide an experiment guide, typical results, where to source suitable resources and where appropriate, spreadsheets for analysing the collected results as well as different ways to analyse the data. We will also look at some of the theory exemplified by each experiment.
Course Dates: 15th – 16th September 2022
Closing Date: 17th June 2022
Applying for this course is no longer possible as the closing date has passed.
