Course «Principles of Contemporary Natural science»
for University Students of Physics-Related Majors
The paper discusses the current stage of development of the educational course
«Principles of contemporary natural science» for university students of physics-related majors.
The main conclusion is made that combination of high scientific level and conceptual
universalism of educational courses may be achieved by developing courses based on that in
physics. However, the content selection, structure and teaching methods for the course
«Principles of contemporary natural science» must be different for students that major in physics,
chemistry, biology, geography etc. In Herzen State Pedagogical University the course based
on such principles is successfully taught for physics students and also for students of other
scientific and humanitarian faculties.
Formation of Professional Competences of Creative
Character in the Methodical System of Experimental
Training for Physics Teachers Students
The article argues that the formation of professional competences of creative nature in the
field of physical experiment should start already in the Pedagogical University. To this end, the
Department of the Theory and Methods of Teaching Physics the Moscow Pedagogical State
University within the framework of a special course on designing school physical experiment created
workshop on technology creativity of teachers in the development of educational experimental
facilities, which is a part of the overall methodological system of experimental training for physics
students of pedagogical universities. Main objectives: to teach future teachers to design and establish
experimental facilities, gather up the necessary equipment for this purpose and align it between
them, configure the collected plants, to promote the development of students ‘ professional skills in
the area of physical experiment, in preparation for their creative work with the physical Cabinet, an
ability to apply their physical experimental facilities in the educational process. Competences acquired
by students during the workshop can be used later during the pedagogical practice and the pedagogical
Modern View of the Examination of the Second Law
It is suggested while studying the second law of thermodynamics to accept as basic the
definition suggested by I. Prigozhin – about nonnegativity of production of entropy in any
thermodynamic systems and for arbitrary processes. It is shown how other popular definitions
can be generated from it, and which of them can be saved in their classical form, and which
require specification and generalization.
In the article the procedure of the study of the cyclical process, which consists of three
isoprocesses, is described. In the course of fulfilling the laboratory work the components of
energy balance and efficiency of engine are calculated.
Lessons of Nanoelectronics. 1. Elastic Resistor Model and
New Ohm’s Law by Bottom – up Approach
Elastic resistor model, ballistic and diffusion transport and new formulation of the Ohm’s
law are discussed in the frame of the bottom – up approach of modern nanoelectronics.
On Dependence and Independence Maxwell’s Equations
The disagreements concerning number of the independent equations in system of the
Maxwell’s equations in manuals on electrodynamics are discussed. The equations of static
fields with the account of relativistic invariance and Helmholtz theorem about decomposition
of a vector field, the wave equations, equations for monochromatic field and transition between
the equations for static and not static fields are considered.
Transformation of Nonmonotonic Dependence Formulas,
Describing Oscillation Amplitudes
The transformations of formulas are presented. These formulas are used in physics
textbooks to describe the amplitude of forced mechanical oscillations, oscillation amplitudes
of voltage across the resistor, across the capacitor and across the inductor in elementary closed
circuit, containing the source of harmonically oscillating voltage. The formulas have been
transformed for visual analysis in the vicinity of the extremum.
In 2009 year is passed hundred years after issue of the first manual to execution of laboratory
works by physics of professor Moscow university A.P. Sokolov . After this time in Moscow
university and in other higher educational institutions and abroad are created a great number of
laboratories works, are deducated to study of different physical phenomenon and physical lawers
by means of most various methods. At the physical faculty MSU is created the book  according
to materials of educational textbooks of different colleges, deducated to the physical practicum,
according to materials of articles in different journals, including the referative journal of physics. In
this book is collected the information about laboratories works by mechanics, published for the last
hundred years. In this article is present the book, in which are described laboratories works by
molecular physics, are published in these years.
Laboratorial Researches of Outers Characteristics of «Land» Galvanic Elements
This scientific work is a component part of research physical and technical and biological
processes, for example a creation and exploitation of land’s galvanic elements. As a result of
this work, they were got complex results, it was showed algorithm of designing research, it was
created scientific and laboratorial complex on given theme.
The Young Interferometer of 8-mm Wavelength Range
as an Example of the Quasi-Optical Modeling in the Physics Workshop
The article describes laboratory work on wave optics which has the target to demonstrate
the interference phenomenon in microwaves range with the point probing of the interference
field. Dielectric permittivity measurement results obtained with the use of 8-mm wavelength
range Young Interferometer are being analyzed. The advantages of this pattern comparing with
3-ñm wavelength Interferometers and wave guide technique are clearly shown. The possible
ways of the accuracy increase are being also discussed.
Presented developed and used in educational process of the system of physical quantities
and patterns (PQP) as a physical workshop on the study of the system of regularities of electromagnetic
values. The objective of the workshop: an in-depth study of the students of units of measurements,
dimensions and the natural relationships in the system of electromagnetic values.
Use of Elements of Distance Learning in the Differentiated
Education of Students of Technical Universities

of the correspondence faculty. Three levels of testing in teaching physics are discussed.
The Dynamics of Priorities in Planning Further
Employment of the Graduates of Physics Department
over a Period of 2005-2011
The authors of the article have analyzed the dynamics of the choice of further employment
among the students of Physics department of Volgograd State Social Pedagogical University since
2006, when the national program «Education» was put in force. It is pointed out that high prestige
of the profession among senior students have been achieved through the measures of the Government
for the improvement of school education, social status of teachers, and also strengthening of the

office and school facilities to the monitoring of the study progress and development of basic
Methods of Studying the Topic «The Electromagnetic Field
of a Uniformly and Rectilinearly Moving Point Electric
Charge» in the Physics Course in University
Since 2007 at V. P. Astafiev Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical University branch has been
carried out the deductive transformation of teaching material of the module «electricity and
magnetism», within the limits of the general course of physics. The article deals with the derivation
of the expressions of the electric intensity and the field density created by a uniformly and rectilinearly
moving charge from the integral form of the Maxwell’s equations system. Also the author tries to
define place of this task in the structure of the Electricity and Magnetism module.
