  Abstract: From the traditional instructions we have established a new set of experimental instructions called three periods training program in the course of General Physics Experiment at Sun Yat-sen Univeristy. The first period is focused on the regular measurements of basic physical quantity. The purpose is to make students be familiar and skillful with scientific measurement including the scientific notation and the analysis of experimental uncertainty. The second period is focused on the recognition of physics laws and relationships. In this period, the students can think in physics and with clear intention to find the relationships between certain parameters as well as the propagation of error. The third period is focused on the experiment with open questions and contents. The goal is to spark the students to start making research-like works including reorganizing research materials and writing experimental reports with the journal style and most importantly find their own views in the open part of the experiment.
