USING OF EXPERIMENTS DURING THE LECTURE OF PHYSICS ON UNIVERSITY

T. Náhlík, I. Opršal

Institute of Technology and Business (CZECH REPUBLIC)
At present, the physical experiments are not part of Frontal Instruction of physics at Institute of Technology and Business in České Budějovice. This appears to be a serious problem especially for students coming from the secondary schools without previous lessons in physics or technical teaching. Understanding of theory and the practice tasks in either text, visual or verbal form are being difficult as a consequence. The problem is enhanced by very uneven level of the students’ knowledge during first two years of study.

Showing just visualizations or simulations and theoretical descriptions of experiments is not enough for students to understand the phenomena. They need to see it with their own eyes or even touch the experiments. As a solution we have adopted series of experiments illustrating different physical phenomena and using the experiment the setting to better understand the physical problem definition. The experiments are doable by a single person and are packed in a single case to be easily transferable. Added to that, we have created a handbook to the experiments which is a compilation showing a solutions defined physical problem in multiple ways. Every problems has it’s counterpart in a form of electronic questioner as a help in a self-study available on the university support system.

The increased abilities of the students shall now be verified against known data by standard evaluation method during final exams and by the success rate of the students in the consequential study disciplines at the university.
