Physics Unit Four - The new stuff

This QUT Teacher Professional Development is designed to take you through the new content on Special Relativity, Standard Model and Particle Interactions from Queensland’s Physics QCAA Syllabus Unit 4. This hands on workshop will focus on content theory, links to current research and practical work that you can implement into your classroom to help your students understand the more abstract concepts from Revolutions in Modern Physics.

This full day workshop will cover -

  • The big picture ideas behind the Revolutions in Physics;
  • Links to prerequisite knowledge from Nuclear Physics;
  • Define, recall, describe and explain content from Special Relativity, Standard Model and Particle Interactions;
  • Apply knowledge to analyse and solve problems involving Special Relativity, Standard Model and Particle Interactions;
  • Explore ideas for claims that students may evaluate in the research investigation;
  • Investigate applications to astrophysics, GPS and CERN.
