Applied Physics Modules Selected for Electrical and Electronic Technologies.
Designed for individualized use in an applied physics course in postsecondary vocational-technical education, this series of twenty-three learning modules is equivalent to the content of two quarters of a five-credit hour class in electrical technology, electronic service technology, electronic engineering technology, or electromechanical technology. Almost all the modules contain technological application in the form of laboratory experiments or as applied homework problems. Each module contains the following components: a cover page explaining the purpose and contents of the module; learning objectives; learning activities; a self-evaluation test with an answer key; and a final test based on the stated objectives. The twenty-three modules cover these six major areas of study: mechanics, properties of matter, heat, wave motion, sound, and light. Certain modules have been selected from the total group and packaged separately for courses in the following technologies: manufacturing engineering, machine tool and design, welding, and industrial plastics (CE 014 410); architectural and civil drafting (CE 014 411); and automotive and diesel (CE 014 412). Instructions in the use of the modules, related notes, data sheets, tests, and answer keys are included in a separate document (CE 014 408). (BM)
