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


  • 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)


  • 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.


  • 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


  • 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:

  • http://www.ac-reims.fr/datice/sc_physiques/sites/adress.htm


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



  • Some Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics (15-18)

  • http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Greece


  • All the topics of Modern Physics at the last year (18)

  • http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/bulgari.ppt


  • Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics but nothing about

  • Relativity or Particle Physics

  • http://www.om.hu/


  • 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


  • Contemporary Physics including Particle Physics and Cosmology

  • http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2001/syllabus/syllabus.htm#Poland1


  • 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


  • 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


  • 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


  • A little bit of Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and Nuclear Physics

  • http://www.argo.be/

  • http://www.vsko.be/


  • Particle Physics at Secondary School since the 1990’s!

  • Advancing Physics

  • Salters

  • http://post16.iop.org/advphys/


  • 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


  • All topics of Contemporary Physics at 18 with experimental work

  • http://skolenettet.nls.no/


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

  • Experimental work as often as possible

  • http://www3.skolverket.se/ki/eng/comp.pdf


  • All the topics of Modern and Contemporary Physics (18-19)

  • Cloud Chamber experiment

  • Medical Applications



  • Different Syllabus from State to State
