Summary

Develop the background subject knowledge required to help planning and teaching physics for key stage 4 (Triple Science). Start your Triple Science teaching with the tools and confidence to plan and teach effective learning for your physics classes. You will explore ways of building student understanding, taking into account misconceptions and common issues in teaching these concepts.

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • make an informed decision over when to use different types of teaching to communicate physics concepts.
  • use tactile, physical models to simulate nuclear experiments in the classroom.
  • develop students’ understanding of mathematical models, including stopping distance, transformers and Boyle’s law. 
  • use a range of external resources to enhance your teaching of physics, such as Perimeter Institute to help teach the expanding universe, and PhET to explore optics.

Book now and you will be automatically registered for the scheduled sessions for the course. Remote CPD courses have live, facilitator-led sessions and are not available for instant access. Please refer to the schedule of dates published for each course instance.
