Details for Curriculum Studies: Physics
CRS441 Integrated Science dealt with science courses that characterise almost all learner experience of secondary school curricula. CRS541 Physics and CRS542 Chemistry deal with discipline-based courses that are more characteristic of the senior secondary years and are attempted by fewer learners. CRS541 Curriculum Studies: Physics builds on the broader issues encountered in the earlier course, with a focus on teaching strategies that rest on teacher planning and presentation and on both wider and more specific evaluation issues that arise as curriculum policy moves Physics beyond applied mathematics.
