Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Harvard Project Physics.
Teaching procedures of Project Physics Unit 6 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 resource 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 in demonstrations, apparatus operations, notes on the student handbook, and an explanation of film loops. Additional articles are concerned with objects dated by radiocarbon, radiation safety, properties of radiations, radioactive sources, radioactivity determination by electroscopes, and radiation detecting devices. Scalers, counters, Geiger tubes, and cadmium selenide photocells are analyzed; and a bibliography of references is given. Solutions to the study guide are provided in detail, and answers to test items are suggested. The sixth unit of the text, 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)
