The investigation

  1. 1. The Investigation
  2. 2. From the guide p152 • one scientific investigation taking about 10 hours and the write up should be about 6 to 12 pages long • complex and commensurate with the level of the course • purposeful research question and the scientific rationale for it (implies research) • same standard as the assessment in the previous courses
  3. 3. From SSS material • The report should be like a physics journal article • IOP • The physics teacher Boomwhackers • Citations academic honesty etc.
  4. 4. Possible tasks include • a hands-on laboratory investigation • using a spreadsheet for analysis and modelling • extracting data from a database and analysing it graphically • producing a hybrid of spreadsheet/database work with a traditional hands on investigation • using a simulation, provided it is interactive and open-ended
  5. 5. Also • Traditional hands on combined with simulation
  6. 6. Apparatus based • Old equipment that hasn’t been used for years / one off apparatus (teltron tubes, ripple tank etc.) • Particular sensors (force, pressure, intensity) • Comparison with simulation (added dimension)
  7. 7. My cupboard 1
  8. 8. My cupboard 2
  9. 9. System / observation based • Design lab type ideas (balloon, jelly, slinky etc.) • Sports • EE type starting points
  10. 10. Simulation based • Algodoo • Interactive physics • Paul falstad • Phet ? • Excel • Geogebra
  11. 11. Database based • Astrophysics
