We studied the field of electricity. Each Student used laptop in any class.
They inputted experimental data into their laptop after the experiment.
They also read textbooks and handout on the screen in physics class.
August 5th experiment (calibrating a thermistor)
August 6th experimental (series connection and parallel connection of
August 10th classroom lectures (Ohm's law, resistivity, power consumption,
series connection bets parallel connection of resistance, calculation)
August 12th experimental (circuit and the fuse, demonstration experiment power dissipation power consumption and KK)
August 13th classroom lectures (voltage divider, rheostat, internal resistance, emf and internal resistance of a power pack power (experiment), demonstration Experiment)
They took two chemical classes, Pre-IB Chemistry class of 10th grade (first
grade students at Japanese high school) and IB Chemistry class of 11th
grade. They learned the structure of the atom in the 10th grade class.
This was what they had already learned in Japan and they also studied English
terminology in the prior training, so they were able to understand it.
However, there was the explanation of an apparatus called mass spectrograph,
which they have never heard. It was very hard to understand its principle
in English. The class paid more attention than Japanese one in how the
knowledge of science has been applied to technology. They learned about
the energy of chemical reaction in the 11th grade class. Experiments was
also carried out several times.
They had not only science and math classes but also English and Chinese classes. They read “The stranger” in the English class of grade 11 and "Of Mice and Men" in the class of grade 10. Their teachers spoke very quickly in the both class on the assumption that students have already read them, so it was incomprehensible for Japanese students. The difference from class in Japanese was that students were active. Japanese students were surprised that Australian students answered positively to teacher’s question. In Chinese class they wrote E-mail in Chinese with buddies who can speak Chinese,
