The Interaction of Man with His Environment. Science III and IIIB.
Pfeiffer, Carl H.
The two student notebooks in this set provide the basic course outline and assignments for the third year of a four year senior high school unified science program. This course is the less technical of the two third-year courses offered in the program. The first of the three major units in this course, Structure and Dynamics of the Biosphere, is composed of three sub-units: the nature and scope of ecological science, the ecosystem, and man in the biosphere. The second unit, Population Structure and Dynamics, contains four sub-units: structure and organization, the functioning of populations, population genetics, and human populations. The third unit, Problems of Coexistence, contains these sub-units: problems of coexistence with the physical environment, with other organisms, and within society. The final sub-unit of the course is Science and the Evolving Society. The notebook materials for each of the sub-units include: a list of required and recommended readings from various other books; questions for consideration in introducing a lesson; a brief background reading; a basic outline of the lectures with space provided within the outline for notes; laboratory activities and investigations; laboratory problem reports and other kinds of assignments (discussion questions, fill-ins, problems); and summary statements and review questions. Numerous diagrams and illustrations are included. (PR)
