Discussion on Physics CurriculaHST 2002

- Generalities about some different Physics Syllabus (HST)
- Contemporary Physics (Particle Physics) in different countries
- The case of each country represented at HST02
- General Discussion
- Conclusions

Generalities

- Big differences from one country to another and even in the same country (local syllabus)
- Different approaches in Teaching Physics: classical, related to the daily life and applications of Physics
- IT as a resource in a lot of countries
- Nuclear Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Special Relativity, (General Relativity in Slovak and USA) Cosmology and Particle Physics at different levels (more or less Maths, more or less experimental work)

Portugal

- Classical Mechanics
- A little of Quantum Mechanics at the Chemistry Syllabus
- No Modern or Contemporary Physics in the present syllabus
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Portugal.

Spain

- Topics on Modern Physics: Nuclear Physics at 17, Particle Physics, Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics before University
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/HST2001Spain.ppt

France

- Classical Mechanics, including oscillators and differential equations to solve, the same in electrical oscillators and with approximations molecular or atomic oscillators.
- Spectroscopy and quanta of energy, therefore E = h n
- Recommended experiences of modern physics in French high schools:

Italy

- Some Modern Physics, including Particle Physics, but, most the time never reached

Greece

- Some Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics (15-18)
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Greece

Bulgaria

- All the topics of Modern Physics at the last year (18)
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/bulgari.ppt

Hungary

- Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics but nothing about
- Relativity or Particle Physics
- http://www.om.hu/

Romania

- Modern Physics with some Mathematical development

Slovak Republic

- Modern Physics, but not Particle Physics
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Slovakia

Czech Republic

- Modern and Particle Physics at 18 for all Physics Students
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/czech.htm

Poland

- Contemporary Physics including Particle Physics and Cosmology
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Poland1

Germany

- It’s possible to teach all kinds of modern Physics, even in special courses.
- But it’s also possible to teach a very small version of Physics.
- Syllabus contains too many very different possibilities.
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Germany

Austria

- All Physics students learn Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Nuclear Physics and Cosmology and do some experimental work from 17 to 19
- http://www.bmuk.gv.at/eu/epages/index.htm

Netherlands

- Students learn Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics
- No Particle Physics or Relativity
- Lots of experimental work
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/nedprog.htm

Belgium

- A little bit of Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics
- http://www.argo.be/
- http://www.vsko.be/

UK

- Particle Physics at Secondary School since the 1990’s!
- Advancing Physics
- Salters

Ireland

- Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics are optional from 16 – 18
- Experimental work and applications of Contemporary Physics
- http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Ireland

Norway

- All topics of Contemporary Physics at 18 with experimental work
- http://skolenettet.nls.no/

Sweden

- A little of Particle Physics, Quantum Mechanics and Relativity but a lot of Nuclear Physics (16-17 and 19-20)
