Applied Physics Modules Selected for Manufacturing and Metal Technologies.
Designed for individualized use in an applied physics course in postsecondary vocational-technical education, this series of eighteen learning modules is equivalent to the content of two quarters of a five-credit hour class in manufacturing engineering technology, machine tool and design technology, welding technology, and industrial plastics 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. These eighteen modules are a part of twenty-three applied physics modules which have been developed for use in several technology courses, including electrical, electronic service, electronic engineering, electromechanical, architectural and civil drafting, automotive, and diesel technologies. All twenty-three modules are available in ERIC document CE 014 409. 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)
