This unit has a focus on the teaching and learning of science at the middle and senior levels of secondary schooling as it pertains to the science area of physics. It explores and critiques the literature as it relates to the research in students’ understandings of physics and implications for best practice in the teaching of concepts and skills in contemporary physics classrooms. Students will apply their knowledge of inquiry-based approaches to teaching and learning to development of appropriate activities and curriculum that might be incorporated into Year 11 and 12 physics classroom practice.
