College Ready Physics Topical Workshop
Participants learn how to incorporate existing Open Source Physics and Physlet-based curricular materials into their classrooms as an extension of their involvement in College Ready topical workshops.  The OSP topical workshops that will be running concurrently with other CR workshops include waves and optics, modern physics, and kinematics and dynamics. Workshop participants will engage in activities using the Physlets (interactive Java applets written at Davidson College), ready-to-run Java programs, and OSP simulations geared to support the specific content being addressed within each physics topical workshop.  Participants will also have the opportunity to create and develop electronic filing cabinets that will help them organize their favorite resources that can be shared with students and other teachers.  College Ready is an NSF-funded Mathematics and Science Partnership at the University of Arkansas that provides professional development to physics and physical science teachers, as well as mathematics teachers, in grades 7-12 through the use of intensive cohort-based workshops that emphasize inquiry-based classroom application of physics and mathematics concepts.
