Physics, A Syllabus for Secondary Schools.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
This is a 1971 reprint of the 1966 syllabus designed to encourage the utilization of such basic concepts as the conservation of energy, the conservation of momentum, and the conservation of charge in related areas rather than in isolation. It is presented in such a way as to show the importance of these ideas as unifying concepts which can be repeatedly applied throughout the course. The basic mathematical skills needed for the course are defined. Mechanics, Wave Phenomena, Electricity, and Atomic and Nuclear Physics are designated as the major areas of study. Topics are listed for each of these areas. Understandings and fundamental concepts and supplementary information are given for each of the topics. (Author/TS)
