Nature of Physical Science: Student Workbook for the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program.
Cumming, William; And Others
This booklet is a student manual in a series of booklets that make up the core of a Physical Science course designed for the freshman year of college and used by teachers in the 27 colleges participating in the Thirteen College Curriculum Program. This program is a curriculum revision project in support of 13 predominantly Negro colleges, and reflects educational research in the area of disadvantaged youth. In this unit, the scientific method is discussed and illustrated with simple experiments that show how scientists acquire knowledge. Examples and experiments are provided to show how scientists use mathematics in discovering relationships in the physical world. Patterns in physical problems are demonstrated in a discussion of the simple pendulum and the simple lever. (MLH)
