Project Physics Teacher Guide 2, Motion in the Heavens.
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Harvard Project Physics.
Teaching procedures of Project Physics Unit 2 are presented to help teachers make effective use of learning materials. The unit contents are discussed in connection with teaching aid perspectives, multi-media schedules, schedule blocks, and resource charts. Analyses are made for transparencies, 16mm films, and reader articles. Included is information about the background and development of each unit chapter, demonstration methods, apparatus operations, notes on the student handbook, and explanation of film loops. Additional articles deal with calendars, armillary sphere, epicycles, "chase problem," atmospheric refraction, relations in an ellipse, moon's irregular motion, initial and gravitational mass, G measuring, and "true" scale of sun, moon, and earth. A redesigned epicycle machine is analyzed, and a bibliography of reference texts and periodicals is given. Solutions to study guide problems in the text and review problems in the handbook are provided in detail along with suggested answers to test items. The second unit of the text, with marginal notes on each section, is also compiled in this guide. The work of Harvard Project Physics has been financially supported by: the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Ford Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the United States Office of Education, and Harvard University. (CC)
