Newtonian Mechanics for Elementary School Teachers.
Cleland, Winston E.
This monograph presents a module that introduces Newtonian Mechanics and related Science - A Process Approach (SAPA) materials. The activities are designed to give the necessary background for understanding the physics involved with the SAPA exercises relevant to this topic. The module is designed so that it can be used with individualized format. It is not designed to be used on a completely independent basis. Three of the topics presented, Using Space/Time Relationships, Predicting, and Measuring, are taken directly from Science - A Process Approach/Part E. Other topics include Distance Measure, Volume Measure, Direction (Vectors), Force, and Momentum. Each laboratory experience is presented in such a way to include objectives, procedures, materials needed and discussion and/or review questions. (EB)
