ideally the ATP questions should be practically demonstrated; at times the students feel the ATP questions are easy and only while attempting the ATP Paper discover the real essence of the problem Problems faced by the students to make students understand that the ATP Paper is more about common sense

commonly students focus on the marking scheme, and are unable to answer the question specific to the problem

shortage of time makes the teachers leave it for the last, which gives a false impression of it being the most difficult part of the syllabus Problems faced by the students the light experiments use ray diagrams, and the students do not understand the diagrammatic representation of the actual problem

students do not have a lot of practice with graphical analysis; they confuse the Mathematics graph with the Physics graph and misunderstand the problem

students are comfortable with writing general errors, such as parallax error and are therefore not specific with their answers Problems faced by the teachers lack of time and equipment in order to familiarize students with requisite questions

difficulty in explaining concepts theoretically that are better explained demonstratively, for example, water rising between two glass slabs put together

students are not familiar with practical aspects of a given problem for example, measuring the diameter of solid metal spheres with a ruler Problems faced by the teachers Teaching and Learning Session 3: http://teachers.cie.org.uk/login/login_form

How do you plan a lesson? You as a teacher… it develops analytical and problem solving skills

it opens venues for further studies

it inculcates the method of systematic thinking
