Puri, O. P.
Contained in this experimental test are instructional materials for a one-semester course designed to give liberal arts students an appreciation of (1) the nature of science, (2) the development of science, (3) the contributions of scientists, (4) the impact of scientific discoveries on mankind, and (5) the possible future effects of science. The historical and philosophical approach is used to develop basic scientific concepts. Mathematical details and analyses are minimized. The test is divided into the following independent sections: (1) concepts of motion, (2) concepts of matter, (3) concepts of energy, (4) atoms in motion, (5) sound, (6) light, (7) electricity and magnetism, (8) the earth in time and space, and (9) the new physics. Photographs and illustrations accompany the descriptions of various scientific principles in each section. Suggested outside readings and study questions are included at the end of each section. (LC)
