Dynan, Muredach B.; Ryan, Anthony S.
A new physical science course was introduced into Western Australia's upper secondary schools in 1978. The major focus of this document is a description of the implementation of the course and its materials during the first two years. Following a brief introduction and overview, chapters focus on: the establishment of physical science as a tertiary admissions examination subject including the rationale for introducing the physical science course, production and dissemination of course materials, academic backgrounds and initial perceptions of physical science students, implementation procedures within schools including initial and on-going inservice programs, student and teacher perceptions related to course materials, and a final chapter highlighting the major points of the document. Ancillary material, such as statements from colleges relating to physical science, is provided in appendices. (SK)
