Feedback form is now closed.
There are many lab experiences mandated in the Alberta Physics 20-30 Program of Studies, 2007. These experiences do not need to use expensive equipment and do not need to involve intricate procedures. The goal of this session is to provide teachers with ideas for effective lab experiences spanning Physics 20 and 30 and have participants engage in a discussion of program expectations regarding these experiences and how implementing a guided inquiry or open-ended approach enhances student learning. Teachers will also be introduced to various evaluation methods and scoring guides for lab skills that can be implemented in the classroom and will perform a lab from P20 and P30.

Participants are asked to "bring" the following materials with them for the session:

Diverging lens
2 lasers or ray box
Ruler
Graph paper or graphing calculator
Empty 500 mL isopropyl alcohol bottle or 500 mL pop bottle
Download Phyphox app to smartphone
water
