TITLE:

Gravitation and tides: a contextualized approach for secondary school


KEY WORDS:

Tides, gravitation, physics teaching

BIG AREA: Ciências Exatas e da Terra

SUMMARY:

The phenomenon of tides, familiar to students from the coastal region, serves as a starting point to give greater meaning and awaken student curiosity when introducing and exploring the principles of Universal Gravitation. From this daily experience, students are encouraged to investigate and understand how the gravitational attraction between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun influences the tides, connecting this understanding with the mathematical formulation of the law of Universal Gravitation proposed by Isaac Newton. Therefore, we seek to develop a proposal for a didactic sequence for teaching Gravitation, for a second year high school class in a school located at Pirangi do Norte beach, using the phenomenon of tides as a contextualizing theme. The methodology adopted includes a practical activity, visiting the beach and measuring the variation of the sea level with a low-cost tide gauge, the use of a computer simulation developed for this work to give the student the opportunity to verify the behavior of the tides and their relationship with gravity, and classroom discussions designed to engage students and facilitate the construction of knowledge based on their experiences. Paulo Freire’s approach guides our pedagogical practice, stimulating students' curiosity and critical thinking, while encouraging us to value their cultural and social context. The expected results include greater motivation and interest among students in the study of physics, specifically in the content of Gravitation, a clearer understanding of the concept of tidal forces, and the ability to relate this knowledge to observable phenomena in their daily lives. This work contributes to the discussion on contextualized pedagogical practices and reinforces the relevance of critical and reflective education defended by Paulo Freire.
