"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me". - Isaac Newton

Course Objectives:

Lecture/Discussion:    2 hours/week

Laboratory:                3 hours/week

This course  interactively engage students in the cognitive and the psychomotor (science) domain in areas of electrostatics, electricity, magnetism, light and atomic physics. It begins by discussing the presence of charges in matter, its conservation and discrete properties and ways that materials can be charged followed by the concept of electric field and how charges interact with each other and the dynamics of the charges under the influence of electrical forces. These dynamics are further probed through the concepts of electric flux, electric potential, work done, electrical energy, electrical power, capacitors, electric current, resistance and resistivity. The laws governing the electrical phenomena including Coulomb’s Law, Ohm;s Law and Kirchoff’s Laws are introduced and used to help discuss the electrical phenomena. In addition, the magnetic phenomena and the effect of magnetic field on charges are introduced. Then the dynamics of charges and the production of magnetic field by moving charges are introduced leading to the induced electromotive force in a coil and its applications to magnetic energy, inductors, motors, generators and its significance and applications to alternating current. The laws involved such as Ampere’s Law, Faraday’s Law and Lenz’s Law are introduced to help understand magnetic phenomena. Quantum mechanics is introduced through the particle properties of electromagnetic wave and the wave properties of particles by introducing the black body radiation, the photoelectric effect, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the Compton effect. Finally, atomic physics through the nature of atom associated with photons such as the atomic models and the x-ray will be introduced and discussed. In addition, the course will allow students to develop their science skills through a series of laboratories (by involving the use of common scientific devices and/or computer simulation) which incorporates investigating natural phenomena and obtain some form of laws or theory.

 

This is a THREE credit-hour course (SLT=120 hours) and will address MOHE Learning Outcomes LO1 (Knowledge & Understanding), LO2 (Practical Skills) and LO5 (Teamwork) . On successful completion of this course, YOU will be able to:

  1. CLO1: Explain the concepts, laws and theories in electrostatics, electricity and magnetism using either or a combination of the qualitative, visual and quantitative approach. (LO1-C2).

  2. CLO2: Observe, plan, predict, conduct and discuss results of scientific investigations in areas of electrostatics and electricity. (LO2-P3).

  3. CLO3: Collaborate with team members in team-related assessment tasks. (LO5-TS3).
     

Specifically, students will be able to: (download the more detail lesson outcomes outlined for each topic)

  1. Use the concept map in defining and relating concepts in areas of electrostatics, electricity and magnetism.

  2. State, define and relate the concepts in electrostatics followed by identifying and explaining  different types of charging process for any given material matter using diagrams and simple numerical approach.

Assessment

This class involves both formative and summative assessment.  Get Table of Specs for the finals

 Formative:

Formative assessments are meant to identify students’ initial beliefs and this is first done during the first week through a diagnostic device called the Conceptual Survey in Electricity & Magnetism (CSEM). Solutions of quiz are discussed after every quiz and its recommended that you participate in that discussion. The quizzes are meant to diagnose and rectify your learning problems. Consistent assessment is done through class discussions and peer discussions before, during and after each class which will help identify weaknesses the students are facing. Remedy to those problems are done during class sessions. I may employ a retest of the same test in helping you achieve the intended learning outcomes and course outcomes but of course you will receive only a minized portion of the marks. Nonetheless, it will help you in learning and in passing the course. In fact, you MUST know by heart what are the lesson outcomes you are to achieve in every lesson before you attend class and be able to state and explain it to me and to your peers whenever your names are called in class.

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS

This class will use the constructivist rather than the behaviorist approach of learning. It aims to develop deep learning (deep understanding and life-long retention) and minimize on surface learning (memorization). This course will employ a combination of interactive lecture and cooperative learning technique, a form of active learning method utilizing the Prediction-Observation-Discussion-Synthesis (PODS) Learning Cycle. Volumes of research in science learning have concluded that students employing active-learning not only have significantly better understanding and retention of the subject matter but also will be able to solve problems involving numerical calculations with better approach and more exact solution.

Hence, conceptual knowledge will be strongly stressed especially during peer group discussions before getting involved with end -of-chapter exercises. Problems requiring numerical results can easily be solved with full confidence ONLY if students have sound scientific reasoning abilities encompassing all the ideas and concepts. For this reason, peer discussions (cooperative learning) will be used along with concept maps and reading summaries before a formal interactive lecture (reinforcement) is given.

In addition, other teaching and learning tools such as tools to identify learning styles, initial beliefs (common-sense beliefs or misconceptions) about electricity and magnetism, will be used to probe cognitive skill readiness of the students (metacognition). Furthermore, digitized lectures, samples of solutions to end-of-chapter problems, simulations and other teaching and learning tools will be made available on the internet for students to view, download, print and share with their peers. Information and Communication Tools (ICT) will be fully incorporated in developing students’ understanding in the subject matter and as part of life-long learning in becoming knowledgeable and autonomous workers (k-workers) in the information age.
