Abstract:

The Teaching of Physics needs school intervention projects to maximize the quality of teaching and provide meaningful learning in this research project, suggestions of inexpensive, experimental activities are presented to supply the absence of physics laboratories in the schools of the public network, specifically from the state school Mineko Hayashida. For the investigation, 325 students of that universe were selected, being: 71 students of the 1st series of the secondary education, for formation of the experimental group and 254 students of the same level, to compose the control group. For the application of the technique, 10 classes were elaborated with experimental activities and applied for the 71 students that made up the experimental group. And for the control group 100% traditional lessons were carried out, in the same period of time as the experimental group, with the support of didactic book and explanations in the classroom. It is understood that the applied technique provided significant learning. Thus, it is expected to contribute to new conceptions and educational innovations are part of the school daily of the research institution and show that it is possible to innovate, through creativity and expand the quality of teaching offered to students of secondary education. effectiveness of the practice, with the approval of 59% of the students participating in the experimental group, and on the other hand, the control group, resulted in 34% approval. The analyzes show us that the students of the experimental group presented a better performance than the control group, that makes us understand that the applied technique provided significant learning. Thus, it is expected to contribute to new conceptions and educational innovations are part of the school day of the investigated institution and show that it is possible to innovate, through creativity and expand the quality of teaching offered to students in high school.
