The course intends to deepen the tools and methods illustrated in the course "Preparation of Didactical Experiences 1" regarding the execution and understanding of some laboratory experiences concerning electromagnetism and modern physics, also in order to make students more and more aware not only of the richness and potential of the experimental method and increasingly passionate about the study of physics, but also aware of the profound changes in the world view generated by the discoveries of the so-called "modern physics". The main objective of the course is to address in a significant way the problems of teaching / learning quantum mechanics.
Expected learning outcomes
The student, at the end of the course, · will know the main results of research in the teaching of electromagnetic induction and quantum mechanics and will be increasingly autonomous in designing activities based on independently set goals generated by authentic personal "questions" in order to better understand the meaning and the importance of the methods proper to physics. · Will know the main results of research in physics education concerning active learning · Will be able to discuss some aspects concerning electromagnetic induction and the first elements of quantum mechanics first from the physical point of view and then also from the didactic point · Furthermore, she/he will be able to prepare a didactic path regarding a topic coming from electromagnetism and quantum mechanics similar to those addressed in the course.
