Secondary School Science Education
(Knowledge and Understanding)
・By deepening basic understanding of science subjects taught in secondary education (physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science), to be able to explain teaching contents. 
Class Objectives
/Class Outline
This is a specialized course of the Program in Science Education. The purpose of this course is for students to learn and understand specialized knowledge of physics among other science subjects. This course will provide the students with explanations of the fundamentals concerning force and energy: ‘ charge & electric field’, ‘ current & magnetic field’, ‘ electromagnetic induction’, ‘ energy in electromagnetic field’, etc. among other content of science ( physics) in secondary education, including educational content of those items. Through this course, the student will deepen understanding of physical natural cognition methodology and fundamental concepts.

Suggestions on
Preparation and
"Every lesson will be a lecture-oriented lesson based on handouts. It will be essential for students to read the handouts and review the contents of the lecture after every lesson. There will be a small quiz about the previous lesson in every lesson. Therefor, reviewing will be important for grade."
Requirements "Special subject ( science, physics)
It is desirable that students have taken ’Basic Knowledge of Physics' and' Scientific Literacy of Physics I'
Grading Method Students will be evaluated based on attendance/performance in class(quizzes) and exam.
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
