THE 1966 REPORT ON THE TEACHING OF ELECTRICITY. A REPORT OF A SUB-COMMITTEE OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR SCIENCE EDUCATION.
BOULIND, HENRY F.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW AND MORE ACCEPTABLE SCHEME OF TEACHING ELECTRICITY IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHYSICS PANEL OF THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR SCIENCE EDUCATION. IN CONTRAST TO THE "PARALLEL FIELD" APPROACH OF AN EARLIER PUBLICATION IN 1954, THE APPROACH IN THIS BOOK IS BASED ON RADIAL FIELDS, POINT CHARGES IN ELECTROSTATICS, AND CURRENT ELEMENTS IN ELECTROMAGNETISM. CHAPTER 1 IS AN INTRODUCTORY SURVEY. CHAPTER 2 PRESENTS A PROPOSED NEW APPROACH FOR TEACHING ELECTRICITY, THE MATHEMATICAL BASIS AND DETAILS OF WHICH ARE EXPLAINED IN CHAPTER 3. CHAPTER 4 EXPLAINS A SUGGESTED INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH. SPECIFICALLY, THE APPROACH, DEALING FIRST WITH ELECTROSTATICS, INCLUDES (1) COULOMB'S INVERSE SQUARE LAW, (2) ELECTRICITY INTENSITY, (3) POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE, (4) RELATION BETWEEN V AND E, (5) CAPACITANCE, (6) FLAT SHEETS AND PARALLEL PLATES, (7) ENERGY OF A CHARGED CAPACITOR, AND (8) DIELECTRICS. ELECTROMAGNETISM INCLUDES A DISCUSSION OF (1) INDUCTION, (2) MAGNETIC FIELDS MEASUREMENT, (3) TORQUE ON A COIL, (4) MAGNETIC MOMENT OF A COIL, (5) MAGNETIC MOMENT OF A MAGNET, (6) MAGNETIC FLUX, (7) ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION, (8) QUANTITY OF CHARGE FLOW WITH CHANGE OF FLUX, (9) FIELD DUE TO A CURRENT ELEMENT, (10) FIELDS NEAR A COMPLETE CIRCUIT, AND (11) FORCE BETWEEN PARALLEL WIRES. NUMEROUS SUGGESTIONS FOR DEMONSTRATIONS AND EXPERIMENTS ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM JOHN MURRAY PUBLISHERS, 50 ALBEMARLE STREET, LONDON W.1. (DH)
