Ideas and Activities for Physical Science.
Chiappetta, Eugene L., Ed.
This manual is designed to supplement an existing physical science curriculum and to assist in providing the learning experiences required to implement an effective course. The first chapter outlines the purposes of this manual and provides a set of teaching tips. Topics such as electricity, wave motion, light, sound, periodic table and nuclear chemistry have been treated in some detail whereas more familiar topics which are addressed in texts have received less emphasis. Each unit contains background information, paper-and-pencil exercises, demonstrations, and laboratory activities. Units include: "Turning Students on to Chemistry"; "Structure of Matter"; "The Periodic Table"; "Chemical Compounds and Equations"; "Acids and Bases"; "Nuclear Chemistry"; "Safety in the Laboratory";"Electricity"; "Motion"; "Newton's Laws of Motion"; "Friction"; "Waves and Light"; and "Sound and Music." Also included is a questionnaire for assessment of a science course by students. (CW)
