ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM IN PHYSICS.
MACGREGOR, ROBERT; AND OTHERS
PROBLEMS OF PRESENTING A COLLEGE-LEVEL PHYSICS COURSE IN HIGH SCHOOL ARE CONSIDERED. FOR POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS IT DRAWS UPON THE EXPERIENCES OF THE SCHOOLS WHICH HAVE INCLUDED SUCH COURSES IN THEIR CURRICULUMS. THE FOLLOWING SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE--(1) MORE LABORATORY EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE PROVIDED THAN IS USUAL IN REGULAR COURSES. (2) HEAVY CONCENTRATION AND THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF MATHEMATICAL PRINCIPLES ARE VITAL. (3) INTELLIGENT ADMINISTRATION IS ESSENTIAL. (4) SCHEDULING MUST ALLOW ADEQUATE TIME FOR LAB AND LECTURES, AND CLASSES SHOULD HAVE A MAXIMUM OF 15 STUDENTS. (5) TEACHER LOAD MUST BE SMALLER THAN IS USUAL. (6) THE TEACHER SHOULD BE ACADEMICALLY SUPERIOR AND DEVOTED, WITH EXTENSIVE AND RECENT TRAINING. (7) SELECTION OF STUDENTS SHOULD BE BASED ON INTEREST, APTITUDE, PAST PERFORMANCE, AND COMPLETION OF HIGHER MATH COURSES. A COURSE OUTLINE AND SUGGESTED LAB EXPERIENCES ARE INCLUDED.
