EXPERIMENTOS CUALITATIVOS. UNA FORMA DE ABORDAR EL ELECTROMAGNETISMO
ln this work a different way to approach the electricity and magnetism course for first
level university students is discussed, specially within programs for teachers education.
It suggests two aspects: a historical-epistemological review of Faraday’s work and the
realization of a series of experiments which will allow students to grasp a more
meaningful development of electricity and magnetism. We hope this two aspects will be
worked in the classroom as “problematical situations”(Garret 1988, Pozo 1994) to allow
students to be involved in problems solutions and get closer to “scientific work” and
particularly to the physicists “doings” (Flórez, 1994).
