Academic Year School/Graduate School Lecture Code 2023Year School of Education CC213206 Specialized Education 物理教材内容論III ブツリキョウザイナイヨウロンIII Teaching Contents of Physics III TERASHIGE TAKASHI,UMEDA TAKASHI テラシゲ　タカシ,ウメダ　タカシ Higashi-Hiroshima 3rd-Year,  Second Semester,  4Term (4T) Thur5-8：EDU L202 Lecture Lecture-oriented 2.0 J : Japanese 3 : Undergraduate High-Intermediate 24 : Social Sciences 08 : Curriculum and Instruction Sciences Physics, The Theory of Relativity 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.（Abilities and Skills）・Based on meticulous analysis and examination of science education in secondary education (including observation and examinations), to be able to design classes and develop teaching materials. This is a specialized subject 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. Particularly, this course will focus on The Theory of Relativity among other teaching contents of junior high school and high school physics, and provide students with an opportunity to understand the academic meaning of those subjects and acquire specialized knowledge needed for teaching those subjects. Lesson1: Guidance and Review of Quantum MechanicsLesson2: The journey to special relativity (Chapter 1)　Aether and electromagnetic waves　Michelson-Morley's experimentLesson3: A Brief History of Special Relativity (Chapter 1)　Lorentz's theoryLesson4: Special relativity and Lorentz transformation (Chapter 2)　The principle of relativity and the principle of invariance of the speed of light　Properties of time and space in special relativityLesson5: Four-dimensional space-time (Chapter 3)　Minkowski space　Geometry of Lorentz transformationLesson6: Relativity (Chapter 4)　Eigen time　Relativistic equation of motionLesson7: LessonRelativistic mechanics (Chapter 4)　Equivalence of energy and massLesson8: Physics of Lorentz transformation (Chapter 5)　Setting of Lorentz coordinate system　Principle of simultaneity and invariance of the speed of lightLesson9: Physics of Lorentz transformation (Chapter 5)　Do objects really appear to contract?　Rocket warLesson10: Co-degeneration of Maxwell's equations (Chapter 6)　Transformability of current charge density　Co-denaturation of Maxwell's equationsLesson11: The journey to general relativity (Chapter 7)　Is it possible to distinguish between accelerating systems and inertial systems?　General principle of relativityLesson12: Progress toward general relativity (Chapter 7)　Equivalence principle　Equation of motion of a particle in a gravitational fieldLesson13: Equations of gravitational field (Chapter 8)　Oblique axis system in two dimensions　General coordinate systemLesson14: Equation of gravitational field (Chapter 8)　Curvature tensor　Equation of gravitational fieldLesson15: Equation of gravitational field (Chapter 8)　Schwarzschild's solution and black holes　Experimental verification of general relativity How to Think about Relativity - How to Think about Physics 5 (Shigenobu Sunagawa, Iwanami Shoten) Every lesson will be lecture oriented and will be conducted in accordance with handouts to be distributed in class. It will be essential for students to review what you learned after each lesson. Special subject (science, physics)It is desirable that students have taken　’Basic Knowledge of Physics', ' Scientific Literacy of Physics I & II' and' Teaching Contents of Physics I & II Students will be evaluated based on class attendance/performance, reports and exam. 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.
