Author(s): Cristina Solano; Charvel López Sr.

Paper Abstract

In recent years the Mexican government has modified the educational programs to include different subjects. Analyzing the natural science books we can notice that in the different units the themes are taught in a direct way introducing in every concept the relation with the everyday life of the students. Optics themes are included in a very good way. The programs some teachers are facing now is that some of them do not have enough experience in this change so a training program has been establish to improve their skills to show them how to implement experiments about the theoretical concepts and to have a wider amount of experiment to enrich the subject.
