Students's conception about physics as a science, evolving knowledge in science and their oppinions about learning science
Rakovská, Jitka ; Kekule, Martina (advisor) ; Žák, Vojtěch (referee)
This bachelor thesis is focused on student's epistemological opinions on physics, more specifically on the structure of scientific knowledge, character of knowing and learning of physics and on sources of ability to study. The goal of this thesis is to use quality research and focus on intense survey of student's visions related to above mentioned. Research metod was semistructured interview using questions from questionnaire EBAPS (Epistemological Beliefs Assessment For Physical Science). I have decided to choose nine students of high schools from Zlín's region, with different sex and study results in physics to realize all interviews. Four interviews were rewrited and encoded. What I found the most interesting is that students with the same attitude may have different opinions. Even all students had different opinions to facts, on the other hand, they all agreed, the most important is to fully understand the theory. Keywords: epistemology, dimension, coding

Špilínková, Ivana ; Žák, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Koudelková, Věra (referee)
Title: Historical experiments and their analogies as a part of physics education at upper secondary school level Author: Ivana Spilmkova Department: Department of Physics Education Supervisor: KNDr. Mgr. Vojtech Zak, Ph.D., Department of Physics Education Abstract: This bachelor thesis is focused on activities related to historical experiments. With regard to the aim of the bachelor thesis, research on Czech and international sources concerning to the use of historical experiments in physics education was carried out. For further processing. Oersted's, experiment and historical methods of measurement of gravitational acceleration and speed of light were selected. Activities related to these experiments were verified in physics lessons at various classes of grammar school (both upper and lower). According to lessons, these activities were modified. The proposals of these activities are presented in materials intended for physics teachers. Keywords: experiment, historical experiment, physics, physics at secondary school
Physics education as a part of leisure time activities
Brynych, Miroslav ; Žák, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Mandíková, Dana (referee)
This diploma thesis is focused on the support of educational leisure time organizations, which deal with science education, but not in the first place. Within the diploma thesis a literature search for non-formal science education was conducted and seven activities with supporting materials for the purpose to educate the participants of these activities as well as the organizers of them were created. The activities were prepared in such way to respect the fact that their organizer did not typically study science at university. The supporting materials should facilitate the preparation, carrying out and evaluation of the activity. All activities were verified in practice at meetings of the leisure time organization Junák - český skaut, z. s. The purpose of this verification was to find out whether and how the activities could be used in practice. Structured interviews with organizers and observation wre used to receive feedback. The final form of the supporting materials of particular activities is presented in the diploma thesis.
Implementation of selected applets to the teaching of physics
Kotmel, František ; Dvořáková, Irena (advisor) ; Žák, Vojtěch (referee)
My Bachelor's dissertations deals with the utilisation of physical applets in education. In the first part, I study the issue of implementing tablets in schools. In the second part, the work displays the possibilities of utilising the Physics at school application.. The quintessential part of the work is the fifth chapter, where are nine working lists with the utilisation of the Physics at school application as well with author's answers. The sixth chapter entails the evaluation of previous classes using the lists. The working lists are primarily structured for students between 7 and 9 grade of the primary school.

Equally, a small recherche of an existence and an availability of other sources pursuing given matters has been done. Some of these sources are recommended in this work. The created text should help readers with elementary matter of antiderivatives and Riemann integrals, double and triple integrals and integrals of the first kind with a special consideration to their applications in physics. A contribution of this and previous work for...
The Quality of Teaching by Beginning Physics Teachers
Martínková, Jana ; Žák, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Mandíková, Dana (referee)
The strategic goal of the research is to contribute to the search for connections between the teaching quality and other factors, and to deepen the understanding of the context of the teaching quality. The research question is posed as follows: Which parameters of the quality of physics teaching are typical for beginning teachers? To answer the question a mixed method research design was used and a case study was chosen as the basic research plan. An ex-post-facto research was chosen as the design of the quantitative part of the research, and the data was collected using the method of pedagogical observation. Regarding the qualitative part, the data was collected using semi-structured interviews. The research sample consisted of four physics teachers, teaching in grammar schools, who have recently graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University. This research shows that there are parameters of the quality of physics teaching which the teachers have in common (e.g. high level of physics expertise, lecturing, mathematics, abstraction, knowledge structure). Besides common features of the teaching quality of the selected teachers there are certain differences (e.g. teaching aids, experiments, work with text, student's activity, demands placed on students).
Possibilities of teaching/learning general relativity at elementary level
Ryston, Matěj ; Dvořák, Leoš (advisor) ; Žák, Vojtěch (referee)
This thesis deals with an elementary introduction to general relativity on a level understandable by secondary school students and graduates. It contains a review of available literature including its approach to the introductory level of relativity, a study text covering the necessary parts of classical mechanics, special relativity and subsequently basic ideas and conclusions of general relativity. A didactical analysis of the study text is also part of the thesis. The text presumes only basic knowledge of secondary school physics (mostly mechanics), therefore it is suitable for a wide range of readers amongst secondary school students and graduates. It can also be useful as a study material for secondary school teachers, who wish to enrich their teaching with more modern chapters of physics.

Kolář, Karel ; Žák, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Kopecká, Václava (referee)
Correspondence physics competition of MFF UK - FYKOS - is extracurricular physical educational activity organized by university students for upper secondary school students. FYKOS is organized by Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague (MFF UK). FYKOS' main goals are: dissemination of physics, education of upper secondary school students, establishing conditions for creation of social bindings between participants (and organizers) and propagation of possibility of studies at MFF UK. This work is the first complete text about running of FYKOS and it is also the first systematical feedback from FYKOS' participants and FYKOS' organizers. The first part is a description of all FYKOS' activities (correspondence part, camps, FYKOSí Fyziklání and others). The second chapter includes an analysis of statistical survey of FYKOS' participants. Other chapters are dedicated to the description of gathering feedback and its interpretation. The feedback was made in several ways - interviews, web questionnaire and email questionnaire. Special attention was turned to study and professional development of former participants. Acquired knowledge lead up to formulation of possible improvements of FYKOS which are introduced in the last part of this theses. It was discovered that among respondents of...

Title: Electronic Textbook in Introduction of Mathematical Methods of Physics Abstract: The objective of this work is to create a studing text not only for the first grade students of physics teaching at FMP CU but also for other students of phy- sical and technical domains at universities which should help them with an intro- duction into mathematic necessary in physics. The main matter of this work is based on preparations and texts of dr. A Hladík, prof. J. Podolský and dr. V. Žák for lectures and exercises of subject Introduction of Mathematical Methods of Physics. The author's experience is also reflected of course, especially his fresh experience with the age group for which is this text created. Equally, a small re- cherche of an existence and an availability of other sources pursuing given matters have been done. Some of these sources are recommended in this work. The cre- ated text should help readers with elementary matter of systems of coordinates, limits and derivations with a special consideration to their applications in physics. A contribution of this work for students is going to be a subject of other resear- ching. An extension of this text with other elementary parts of mathematical methods of physics is presumed too.
