Solar Energy: Instructor Guides, Labs and Tests. First Edition.
Orsak, Charles G., Jr.; And Others
Instructor guides are provided for each of 11 courses in a 2-year associate degree program in solar technology. The semester-length solar courses are broken down into modules which correspond roughly to a 1- to 2-week block of instruction. Each guide presents a course description, course objectives, references for further information, and a detailed course outline that can be used as the basis for lesson plans. In addition, the guides contain, with some variations, pre-tests, post-tests, answer keys, lab exercises, student assignments, and transparency masters. Guides are provided for the following courses: (1) Introduction to Solar Energy; (2) Energy Science I; (3) Energy Science II; (4) Materials, Materials Handling, and Fabrication Processes; (5) System Sizing, Design, and Retrofit; (6) Collectors and Energy Storage; (7) Energy Conservation and Passive Design Concepts; (8) Operational Diagnosis of Residential Applications; (9) Codes, Legalities, Consumerism, and Economics; (10) Non-Residential Applications and Future Technology; and (11) Practicum in Solar Energy Technology.
