    • Case Studies/Problem-Based Learning
      • Mini-presentation
      • Physics 11 (Concept and System)
      • Tonight’s topic of case studies and problem-based learning
    • FUSION
    • Energy Inside the Atom
      • e=mc 2 (audio file)
      • The Big Bang Theory
      • Fusion and the creation of the elements
      • How does this compare to Fission? (note: a neutron is electrically neutral)
    • Fusion reactors
      • Easy in theory
      • Very difficult in reality
      • Require high temperatures (150 million degrees) and pressures
      • France in 30 years

    • Case Method / Project-Based Learning
    • A Personal Case Study
    • - a student-centred, problem-based, interdisciplinary approach to learning - has been adopted by universities around the world. The McMaster Model
    • Case Learning student-centred problem-based high interest narratives interdisciplinary approach issues require ‘sustained examination’ complex situations (information, conflict, values)
    • A case is a story or narrative of a real life situation that sets up a problem or unresolved tension for the students to analyze and resolve. Go to Case Study… C. Roland (Chris) Christensen
    • How to Create Cases
      • Select the theme you want to teach.
      • Ask yourself if there is a current story on this topic.
      • Collect:
      • newspaper articles,
      • storybooks from the library,
      • internet blogs,
      • online journal entries,
      • photos,
      • anything to make the story more real.
      • Create your story.
    • Project-Based Learning Watch Project Videos
    • Philosophy Behind Case-Method/Project-Based Learning
      • Students can see science in context .
      • Students learn better if there is an overarching theme that they can observe, question and interact with.
      • Students are far more interested in real learning environments than ones that are abstract, artificial or contrived.
      • Students can construct their own knowledge more easily if it’s based on their life experience.
      • Real projects present unstaged and unexpected situations that promote critical thinking .
      • Teachers cannot provide experiences without limits the way projects do.
      • Projects stimulate multiple intelligences .
