Physics by InquirySummary and Conclusions
The inquiry-based approach provides an excellent motivation for the students.
Important concepts in Physics can be explored using this method, without the need for sophisticated algebra.
Care should be taken in the use of simulations. The hands-on approach is very much more effective than the simulated approach.
The inquiry-based approach to teach science to non-scientists makes a high demand on the staff:
- 1 Faculty/Staff per 3 - 4 students is optimal.
- Avoid the cook-book approach.
