The seven units include an overview of energy and power, principles of energy and power, power production and conversion, power transmission and storage, transportation systems, transportation technical subsystems, and future projections. The first section is designed to teach teachers how to use the materials and includes an explanation of instructional elements, an instructional-task analysis for each unit, and a list of 24 references. The instructional elements for the units include objectives, suggested activities, information sheets, transparency masters, assignment sheets, job sheets, tests, and test answers.
