Class Objectives
/Class Outline
"Through the trial lesson, the students will acquire knowledge and skills needed for developing and using teaching materials of physics experiments in junior high and high schools.
Each student will select 2 or 3 themes from high school physics and give a trial lesson including a university-level specialized lecture on the selected themes) and demonstrative experiments.  After every lesson, the students will have a discussion over the content of trial lessons given in class and submit an evaluation report on the trial lessons.
