Project Physics Teacher Guide 3, The Triumph of Mechanics.
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Harvard Project Physics.
Teaching procedures of Project Physics Unit 3 are presented to help teachers make effective use of learning materials. Unit contents are discussed in connection with teaching aid perspective, multi-media schedules, schedule blocks, and resource charts. Brief analyses are made for transparencies, 16mm films, and reader articles. Included is information about the background and development of each unit chapter, demonstration procedures, apparatus operations, notes on the student handbook, and explanation of film loops. Stroboscopic photographs are analyzed along with related film loops. Additional background articles are included to deal with physics aspects at the beginning of the 19th Century, conservation laws, elastic and inelastic collisions, energy reference levels, temperatures of outer space, feedback, atmospheric pressure determination, and photographing of standing waves. Solutions to the study guide in the text are provided, and answers to test items are suggested. The third unit of the text, along with marginal notes on each section, is also compiled in the teacher 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)
