Project T.E.A.M. (Technical Education Advancement Modules). Introduction to Industrial Physics.
Whisenhunt, James E.
This instructional guide, one of a series developed by the Technical Education Advancement Modules (TEAM) project, is a 20-hour introduction to industrial physics that explains and demonstrates to industrial maintenance mechanics the direct relationship of physics to machinery. Project TEAM is intended to upgrade basic technical competencies of unemployed, underemployed, and existing industrial employees. The materials in this module serve as a student outline and an instructor guide. The manual identifies 12 units: (1) pretest (not included); (2) measurement and trigonometry; (3) motion and forces in one direction; (4) concurrent forces, work and energy; (5) simple machines; (6) rotation motion; (7) rotational motion and nonconcurrent forces; (8) matter; (9) fluids; (10) temperature and heat; (11) gas laws; and (12) posttest (not included). Page references to the text used in teaching this course are given for each session. (NLA)
