#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Mechanics

The approach we’ll be taking in this session will set the structure for the whole of the module. We’ll begin by introducing a problem that will cover the main learning objectives of the session. We’ll then look at what is required to solve this problem; We’ll build up this knowledge step by step, applying it to the solution of the problem as we proceed. When we get to the end we will have found a solution to the problem. Then we’ll invite you to try some problems covering again some of the topics that have arisen during the session, either on your own or with guidance. We’ll also invite you to raise any issues with these problems in the tutorial.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching– Motion in the Plane

In this section we’ll extend this to motion in more than one dimension, for example the motion of bodies orbiting under gravity. And we’ll also look at how we can treat the motion of an extended body.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Current, Electricity

In this session we will be introducing electric currents. We will consider how an electric current behaves in DC and AC circuits, and how these circuits are described with circuit components like resistors, capacitors and inductors.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching - Electric and Magnetic Fields

This session will introduce you to electric and magnetic fields. We’ll look at what we mean by a field and at what electric charge is and relate the two through Gauss’s theorem. From this we’ll derive Coulomb’s law for the force between charges. Then we’ll look at the concept of electrical potential which is related to the work done in moving a charge through a field. We’ll return to the notion of capacitance which we used in session 4, this time looking at how capacitance is computed. Finally we’ll take out first look at magnetism from the point of view of the magnetic effects of current.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Magnetic fields

In this session we’ll begin with Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. We’ll describe and use the analogy between a current loop and a magnetic dipole and study the magnetic energy in various situations, including the energy density of a magnetic field. Finally we’ll look at magnetic forces from the point of view of the interaction between moving electrical charges, the Lorentz force law, and describe the force between current carry wires, the Biot-Savart law.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching– Maxwell’s Equations

In this session we’re going to look at how electricity and magnetism can be unified into a system of equations, named after James Clerk Maxwell, the Scottish physicist who first proposed them. Then we’ll see how this leads to an understanding of the nature of electromagnetic radiation.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Atoms and Light

In this session we shall look at how light interacts with atoms. This will enable us to determine the internal structure of atoms and also the quantum behaviour of light.

#### Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching– Condensed matter

In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.
