School Texts, a Source of Misinformation.
Iona, Mario
The author's stated purpose is to promote greater efforts to prevent the use of so much erroneous material in the schools under the name of science and physics. Two texts are chosen as examples, "Modern Physics" 5th Edition by (Dull) Williams, Metcalfe, Trinklein, and Lefler, and the "Pathways in Science" series by Oxenhorn. Specific errors are cited by page number and the corrections indicated. A request is made for more involvement on the part of physicists in correcting and preventing such errors in textbooks. (TS)
