Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Harvard Project Physics.
Teaching procedures of Project Physics Unit 4 are presented to help teachers make effective use of learning materials. Unit contents are discussed in connection with teaching aid lists, multi-media schedules, schedule blocks, and resources charts. Brief summaries are made for transparencies, 16mm films, and reader articles. Included is information about the background and development of each unit chapter, procedures used in demonstrations, apparatus operations, notes on the student handbook, and explanation of film loops. Additional articles are concerned with electromagnetic spectra, field concepts, Oersted's own account of his discovery, Romer's work, and "lectron" series. Current balances and microwave apparatus are analyzed, and a bibliography of references including that of photographic instrumentation is given. Solutions to study guides are provided in detail, and answers to test items are suggested. The fourth unit of the text, along with marginal comments on each section, is also compiled in the manual. 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)
