Individualized Instruction in Science, Introductory Physical Science, Learning Activity Packages.
Kuczma, R. M.
Learning Activity Packages (LAP) mostly relating to the Introductory Physical Science Text are presented in this manual for use in sampling a new type of instruction. The total of 14 topics are incorporated into five units: (1) introduction to individualized learning; (2) observation versus interpretation; (3) quantity of matter; (4) introduction to atoms, compounds, and elements; and (5) models of matter. Brief descriptions are included of LAP, activity in chemistry laboratory, metric system, mass and volume, and a review of atoms and molecules. A set of directions for fulfilling specific objectives is given for each topic, making it possible for students to learn on their own as individuals. Among these, some are specially designed and others are identified in connection with the content of "Modern Chemistry; Terms, Tables, and Skills," by B. J. Woodruff, and "Modern Physical Science" by Brooks and others. In the course of learning, besides keeping a notebook and vocabulary sheets, the students are asked to take pretests, self-evaluation tests, and posttests. Students' grades are assigned on the basis of the amount of their work, posttest results, and work habits and attitudes. Also included are two remedial units dealing with calculation with decimals and standard scientific notation of numbers. (CC)
