, Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis Much effort is being expended on exploring the use of the WWW for teaching and learning. One of the reasons for this is that the WWW presents unparalleled opportunities for modes of communication with which new and different teaching and learning techniques can develop. Since the heart of teaching and learning is communication, the WWW represents fertile ground for educational development. In these early stages of development, what are some broad categories of web usage for science education? Let's consider five categories in terms of the technology they require and the kinds of communication they foster.
1. Basic HTML - Information Delivery
A basic HTML (hypertext markup language) document can deliver a great deal of information including text, images, movies, and sounds. Such documents are good for one-way communication, with information passing from the teacher to the student(s). A WWW browser can access such documents from the simplest storage medium, such as a floppy disk that the student picks up in a faculty office, as well as from a WWW server. The vast majority of web-based education-related material falls into this "information delivery" category. Examples are standard syllabi, lecture notes, course calendars, etc. These materials, by their very nature, provide little interactivity. They do not permit communication from student to faculty, but they do provide 24 hours a day access to information - as the students need it.

    Office: 270 Sharp Laboratory Phone: 831-6526
    The second half of a two-semester course that provides an introduction to algebra- and trigonometry-based physics for students majoring in biology, chemistry, sciences other than physics, pre-medicine, as well as other disciplines. The class meets three times a week, i.e., 75 minute sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and a three-hour session on Wednesdays that includes laboratory and recitation sessions. The three-hour Wednesday meeting time is devoted to a combination of tasks including the traditional laboratories, problem-solving laboratories, and whole class activities. This class session should be used as an opportunity to complete assignments, real-world problems, as well as complete laboratory assignments.
    Course Prerequisites

    The mathematical techniques used in the course require that the students have developed functional skills in algebra and trigonometry. Functional skills include knowledge of basic algebraic operations, the ability to evaluate algebraic expressions, to translate into algebraic symbols relationships which are expressed in words, to solve "word" problems, to manipulate and solve first and second (quadratic) degree equations, to solve problems involving trigonometric functions and to represent functional relationships graphically.
    Instructional Approach
    Course Description

    The students' learning of physics is structured around a cycle of in-class activities which include mini-lecture, conceptual assignment, "real-world" application (problem and laboratory), and an overview.

    Is the Computer Appropriate for Teaching Physics?
    Edward F. Redish
    Department of Physics, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742-4111 (Published in Computers in Physics When the personal computer first came out in 1981 I was elated. As a physics teacher at a research university and as a researcher in a field that uses computers heavily, I was concerned that our undergraduates weren't learning to do physics with computers. My attempts to use our mainframe in class were frustrated by the difficulty of teaching my students our job control language and the difficulty of their getting computer time. The personal computer seemed like the answer. I bought my first PC in December 1981. A dozen years later I'm now the proud owner of three machines home, office, and laptop. My department has two microcomputer labs and a laboratory with microcomputers. My campus has computer workrooms in the dorms, library, and parking garage. Computers in education are clearly here to stay. Now seems like a good time to ask: Have we figured out the right way to use the computer in teaching physics? One of the first computer education applications I saw was at a meeting of the AAPT in the early '80s. A cart ran down an inclined plane. The computer recorded its one hundred times each second, fit the data with the textbook formula, and, in less than a minute, printed out a report showing the values of the parameters extracted and graphs of the data and theory. This is what I call a "the computer gets an A the student gets an F" experiment. If you didn't understand it before you saw it, you wouldn't learn much from it.

      I would like to state that my thinking processes in professional life were honed by my three math courses, my three physics courses and my 5 chemistry courses which allowed me to obtain my Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Princeton in '39 after serving a year at Amherst doing research for Professor R.A. Beebe under a National Research Council Grant. At the time I attended Princeton, I was the only one with a B.A.; my classmates all had their M.S. degrees and obviously had had more advanced grounding in science than I. The fact that I completed my Ph.D. in the then usual three years speaks to the excellence of my Amherst training.
      Mr. Frederick G. Baily, '50
      My three years in Physics and Mathematics at Amherst provided a solid basis for the engineering programs at MIT and Caltech which followed my departure from Amherst. I went to work for General Electric in Schenectady in 1951 with an assignment in the General Engineering Laboratory developing air turbines for local-power generation for the Boeing B-52. The bulk of my GE career was spent in the large steam turbine business in Schenectady in the design, development and application of fossil-fuel and nuclear units for utility power generation. As manager of Application Engineering I have had the opportunity to write a large number of technical articles and make numerous customer presentations around the world. My Amherst liberal education has proven very useful in these communication activities.

    57. A Proposal To Prepare Teachers To Teach With Technology
    are separately funded with funds in the physics area in available to the teachersfor activities and access their own programs at the schools where they teach.
    A PROPOSAL TO PREPARE TEACHERS TO TEACH WITH TECHNOLOGY BY DR. JAMES A. ROBERTS PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS, THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH TEXAS ABSTRACT Teaching with technology is a two edged sword for many teachers. When properly trained teachers and students can have access to a marvelous tool to conduct our tasks. On the other hand, technology is intimidating to those who do not understand and use it . The major goal of this project is to make science and technology user friendly to the 20 teachers who will participate in the Regional Collaborative for Excellence in Science Teaching Workshops each summer at the University of North Texas. What is learned about interfacing the teachers with technology will be shared within teaching profession. The teachers will learn how to use electronic information sources, how to use digital cameras for collecting images, how to print these images from computer storage to produce color transparencies and images to use in class room teaching. NARRATIVE The request for funding for work stations is part of a larger effort that encompasses the state of Texas through the Texas Collaborative for Excellence in Science Teaching. The branch at the University of North Texas is the Regional Collaborative for Excellence in Science Teaching which includes a collaborative in the College of Education, UNT, directed by Dr. Jim Poirot, a collaborative in biology, directed by Dr. Olivia White and a collaborative in the College of Arts and Sciences, directed by Dr. James A. Roberts. Each of these units are separately funded with funds in the physics area in excess of $90,000 for the 1989-1999 funding cycle.

    BEAMS: Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science Key Features
    Becoming Enthusiastic about Math and Science (BEAMS) brings 5th and 6th grade students and their teachers to the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility from the surrounding area (Newport News, VA) for approximately 15 hours over the course of a week. Volunteers from the Jefferson Lab's technical staff lead the students in age-appropriate, hands-on, inquiry-centered math and science activities, conduct tours of the lab, and provide career role models. The activities, some of which can be viewed on the Web, have been developed over several years by the Jefferson Lab education staff in conjunction with technical staff volunteers and local teachers. One goal has been to insure that the activities can be integrated into the schools' science education programs. A follow-up Family Night at the lab involves the parents of the students. Becoming Involved
    • The BEAMS program provides an example of how a large science or engineering laboratory can utilize its technical personnel to have an effect on the science education program of surrounding school districts.

You will also take part in small group tutorials, laboratory work, self-directed learning, computing and project work. In addition you will participate in a variety of activities designed to improve your verbal and written communication skills that you will find useful whatever your chosen career. Lectures Lectures normally last for fifty minutes and often make use of demonstrations and modern visual aids. To support the work you do in lectures you will be expected to read recommended background material and to attempt graded problem sheets that are handed out according to our timetable. Help with examples is available through tutorials and problems classes, but many students find that discussions with friends on the course is also very stimulating and helpful. Tutorials On arrival in the department in the first year every student is allocated a member of staff as their Personal Tutor. He or she will follow your progress, give you advice and help on your coursework and is normally your first point of contact if personal or other problems arise. They will also be able to put you in contact with the other student support services if necessary. In the first year your Personal Tutor also acts as your Academic Tutor and guides you in the transition from the School to the University learning environment. In the first year there are weekly time-tabled meetings in a group of four students. From the second year onwards you will meet other academic members of staff through problems classes and other non-lecture based activities, but you always keep the same personal tutor throughout your course.
