M. Chertok, Physics 7A What is Physics 7, really? Physics 7 is a new approach to teaching/learning introductory physics It involves Learning by doing Active learning Application of models Learning by exploration in a small group Using a chalkboard It requires active participation! 6

M. Chertok, Physics 7A Active learning Most of your learning (gain of understanding) will take place in DL Your DL instructor will give guidance, but will not tell you the answer, or if your idea is right or wrong That responsibility is given to your small group (SG) and the rest of the class (WC) 7

M. Chertok, Physics 7A DL Overview DL is mandatory. Your DL instructor will know if you miss. Upon arrival (on time ;)) 1. Turn in FNTs 2. Listen for announcements/read overview handout 3. Includes next FNTs on back 4. Start ±rst activity in your small groups (SG) 5. Each SG activity is followed by WC discussion 11

M. Chertok, Physics 7A Course policy 13 Welcome to Physics 7! In order to be more consistent with current research about how students learn, Physics 7 has been structured differently than more traditional science courses. One signiFcant difference is that the time spent in lecture has been signiFcantly reduced. The lecture is not intended to be the means by which you acquire the course content. Rather, it should provide focus and a framework for the new material you will encounter in the course. Most of your learning should occur as you participate in various types of activities, experiments, and discussions in small groups and as a whole class in your discussion/lab (DL) section, and as you work outside of class to make sense of the material and complete the homework
