Fowler, John W.
This source book, one part of a three-part NSTA series on energy-environment, is written for teachers who wish to incorporate material on the complex subject of energy into their teaching. This work is divided into two volumes, each with numerous tables and figures, along with appendices containing a glossary, mathematics primer, heat engine descriptions, and nuclear energy discussion. Volume 1 (Energy, Society, and the Environment) deals with energy and its relationship with conservation, the environment, the economy, and strategies for energy conservation. In Volume 2 (Energy, Its Extraction, Conversion, and Use), topics discussed include the rate of energy consumption, future sources of energy, and the increased cost of energy. (Author/CP)
