Forces. 'O' Level Teacher's Guide. Unit 1. ZIM-SCI, Zimbabwe Secondary School Science Project. Year 3.
The Zimbabwe Secondary School Science Project (ZIM-SCI) developed student study guides, corresponding teaching guides, and science kits for a low-cost science course which could be taught during the third year of secondary school without the aid of qualified teachers and conventional laboratories. This teaching guide, designed to be read in conjunction with the related student guide, includes instructional strategies, lists of required materials, laboratory procedures, and other information for a five-part unit which expands on the concepts about forces learned in ZIM-SCI units H1 and H2. Activities and investigations focus on: forces acting at a distance and forces of reaction; various man-made devices that apply or overcome these forces in a useful way; measurement and calculation of the size of these forces; nature of pressure and application of pressure to useful work; and principles that govern all simple machines. Since concepts in this unit cover requirements of the O-Level General Syllabus Examination, actual O-level examination questions are included. Each section in this guide corresponds to a given section in the student study guide. (JN)
