This review has a section devoted to each of the following conference topics: Monographs, Film, Experiment Sequences, Computer-assisted Instruction, Designing a Unit of Instruction, and Toward New Solutions. Each section contains background discussion on the rationale, philosophy, and importance for improvements in the area being considered. The materials developed at the conference are described, and include multi-level monographs, film on symmetry and computer generated film; experimental sequences on oscillators and normal modes; kinetic theory; and properties of matter. Brief examples of computer-assisted program sequences on weightlessness and optics are presented, as is a list of conference participants. Photographs. (PR)
