Physics 477

This course is designed for teachers in the Chicago Public Schools who are interested in earning a middle school science endorsement. The goal of the course is to allow each teacher in the course to become a superb teacher of science. During the semester, we will focus on a number of basic concepts in physics, such as motion, energy, matter, force, electricity and magnetism. Math will be used to elucidate the concepts, and it is hoped that all participants will gain a greater appreciation of the role of math in describing the physical world.

Grading will be based on class participation, homework and in class assignments, a lesson plan, and a take home final.
