Professional Development Opportunity Detail Page
|Name:||Modeling Workshop at ASU: microscopic electricity and magnetism|
|School/Institution:||Arizona State University|
|Opportunity Type:||Modeling Workshop
|Teacher Level:||High School
|Description:||Open to teachers nationwide.
Peer leader: Michael Crofton
Location: Bateman Physical Sciences Center, Room H-356-358
8am to 3:30pm MTWTh, 8am to noon F
course title: PHS 531: Methods of Teaching Physics II
The workshop borrows extensively from work of Bruce Sherwood and Ruth Chabay. There are 3 units in electricity: Charge and Field, Potential, and Circuits. The circuit unit is unique at high school level, as it leads students through surface charge as the mechanism for setting up different strength fields in conductors of circuits. The magnetism unit begins by investigating the field of a current-bearing wire, then fields of permanent magnets, then force on a particle in a field, then force on a current-bearing wire in a field, and then electromagnetic induction and Faraday's Law.

Benefits and Requirements
|Cost:||ASU tuition is posted at http://modeling.asu.edu/MNS/MNS.html|
College Transcript Credit
|Benefit Explanation:||3 graduate credits optional. (ASU charges a late fee of $50 for applications after May 12, and a another late fee of $50 for course registrations after May 25.) Students born after 1956 must have proof of MMR immunity on file at the ASU Student Health Center before registering for a course.
Arizona teachers can apply for partial tuition scholarships. Contact Jane Jackson for details.
Out-of-state teachers for whom ASU tuition is a financial hardship are asked to contact Jane Jackson: Jane.Jackson@asu.edu.
NEW, AS OF APRIL 28: TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS for out-of-state teachers who might not otherwise be able to attend the program. Up to 30 (thirty) scholarships of $1,500 each to out-of-state teachers, and up to 5 (five) scholarships of $3,000 each to out-of-state teachers from Title 1 schools. These scholarships cannot be combined with other scholarships. Applications must be submitted by May 11, 2012. Reply to email@example.com for an application form. Scholarship recipients must
* be U.S. citizens,
* expect to be assigned at least one section of high school physics in the next school year,
* apply to ASU as non-degree graduate student (May 12 deadline to avoid $50 late fee),
* take the ASU Modeling Workshop in mechanics, physical science with math, or electricity & magnetism for credit. All 3 workshop courses are offered June 11-29 at the ASU - Tempe campus.
Low-cost housing can be arranged (private room, shared bath in furnished apartment): expected ~$25/day. Contact Jane Jackson.
|Other Prerequisites:||A Modeling Workshop in mechanics.|
