PTTS 2018 is for BSc Third year /First year MSc students who are highly motivated towards research.
Every working day, there will be lectures and tutorials and a laboratory session on Experimental Physics. There will be a session on A Career in Physics and also a few evening lectures on recent developments in Physics.
Electricity and Magnetism
Unlike in traditional lectures, in this program classes will be interactive in nature. Students will be asked questions, and will be encouraged to ask questions in the lectures. They will be asked to come to the blackboard to solve a problem or explain a concept during tutorials. There will be an emphasis on clarifying students' understanding of fundamental principles. Assignments for the afternoon tutorials will include problems and discussion questions based on the topics discussed in the morning. Students will be encouraged to discuss the solutions among themselves with the teacher playing more the role of a facilitator. An appropriate syllabus will be developed keeping in mind the college syllabus in different parts of the country. The experimental physics course will be structured so as to make students think of how to propose and design an experiment, and to identify errors in obtaining and interpreting the data. They will not be given a pre-designed experiment with instructions. The emphasis in both theory and experiments will be on training students to think independently. Motivated students will learn to enjoy doing physics.
