Probing the Natural World, Volume 1.
These materials represent the first third of a coordinated science program for grades seven through nine. The materials have been prepared according to the following Intermediate Science Curriculum Study rationale: (1) science at the junior-high-school level should serve a general education function, and (2) both processes and concepts should be stressed. The content is "fundamental": the materials can be applied to a wide variety of situations and can lead to many and diverse generalizations. Content is organized around the twin themes of "Energy, Its Form and Characteristics" and "Measurement and Operational Definition." This book is written in a story-line style and puts stress upon individual work. Drawings and diagrams are used liberally and particularly in connection with laboratory activities. (BR)
