Abstract

Newton’s laws of motion is one of difficult topics in junior secondary lessons. Many students encounter difficulties in understanding the relationship between phenomena and principles. Through various experiments, it cannot only help students grasp scientific concepts but also arouse students’ interests in learning science. The following experiments demonstrate how junior secondary school teachers can teach the students about inertia and reaction.
在初中科學課堂上教授牛頓力學原理是很困難的,學生多感覺很難明白其現象與原理的關係。透過實驗,不但可增加學生的學習興趣,且能幫助他們建立科學概念及其應用。以下實驗旨在提供初中科學教師們一些傳統教科書以外的設計,用以教授初中力學課題中的慣性與反作力之原理。 Copyright © 2002 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
