Physics Department to Organise Workshop for Physics Teachers

Thursday, December 27, 2018 - 10:00am to 3:30pm

The Physics Department at Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) is organising a day-long Workshop for Physics Teachers on Selected Topics in Mechanics.

Day and Date: Thursday, December 27, 2018

Time: 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Venue: SBASSE 201, LUMS


Professor Asad Abidi and Dr. Muhammad Sabieh Anwar are the workshop instructors. The workshop is designed for FSc/A-Level/College Physics teachers. Expert instructors will demonstrate how to teach concepts in Mechanics, that experience shows, are weakly grasped by even the best students. The lectures on theory will include free-body diagrams, rotational motion, and angular momentum, illustrated by examples from daily life. Demonstrations of in-class experiments will include collisions of objects tracked by a camera, acceleration measurements by a smartphone, and how Lenz's Law can affect the motion of objects. A lecture will discuss the meaning of scientific literacy, by showing concept trees of how primary and secondary school teaching links to university physics, chemistry and biology, and ultimately how this can enable a well educated person to understand the workings of nature.
