Die praktischen Schulerarbeiten in der Physik

Nature volume 85, page 304 (05 January 1911) | Download Citation



THIS pamphlet consists of two parts, of which the first and longer is a plea for the further introduction into German schools of laboratory work in practical physics, while the second gives a few selected examples of the kinds of work which the author regards as specially suited for schools. It appears that comparatively few of the German Gymnasien and Realschulen have as yet introduced practical physics into the school curriculum, although there is at the present time a vigorous movement in favour of its compulsory adoption in all higher schools. The author sets forth very clearly the advantages of individual practical work, and discusses at some length the objections that have been raised against laboratory work in schools.
