Science

Introductory Biology
Eva Bushman

This is a general course in biology which stresses the importance of living things in our lives. Many specific examples give the student a basis for understanding what he or she sees in the natural world. Topics include evolution, classification of plants, animals, and protists; comparative anatomy of cells, tissues, organs, and systems; comparative physiology; interrelationships of organisms in the various biomes; the human body; genetics; and behavior. Recommended for grades 9-14.

Biology Dictionary
Sr. Rita Blanche St. Pierre

This dictionary of approximately 5000 terms is especially appropriate for beginning or first-year biology students. The author, an experienced biology teacher for more than 25 years, used over 100 biology texts and dictionaries in researching terms and definitions. The goal was a dictionary that could be used independently by students, with simple pronunciation cues and definitions that would be usable and understandable by biology students everywhere.

Introductory Chemistry
Eva Bushman

Introductory Chemistry discusses the properties of matter, chemical reactions, solutions, and properties of the main groups of elements. Designed for students with little background in chemistry and mathematics, the course stresses the practical aspects of the science.

Recommended as a high school course, a general college course, or as preparation for college science majors with no high school chemistry background. Grades 9-14.

Chemistry Problem Solving
Wheeler

Understanding problems and how to solve them is often the bane of the General Chemistry student. Chemistry Problem Solving directs and leads students through several types of problems they will meet. By a kind of Socratic method, students are helped to work their way through a problem, not just given a model to memorize. A few suggestions are presented and directions given, then students work through a step of the problem, work is checked, and directions given for the next step, and so on. Each module is limited to one problem type or a few closely related ones.

Each of the basic problem areas is covered: stoichiometry, gas laws, heat and thermodynamics, solutions, equilibria of the several varieties, and redox, through the Nernst equation. Several other frequent sources of difficulty are treated; writing formulas, Lewis structures and molecular geometry, and some ideas on how to predict a chemical reaction (precipitation and neutralization). For use as a study aid or supplement to an advanced high school or college freshman chemistry text.

The Vocabulary of Physics
William S. Rothwell, Ph.D.

More than a dictionary, this volume was written on the conviction that physics textbooks place insufficient emphasis on the new vocabulary which students must assimilate. The author, a teacher and industrial research scientist, chose more than 100 of the most important physics terms, the correct understanding of which is vital to the new student, and discusses in detail their meaning and how they fit and interact in the nomenclature of contemporary physics.

Contains sections on: Mathematics, Mechanics (Statics, Dynamics, Acoustics), Heat, Electricity & Magnetism, Light & Optics (Geometrical, Physical), and Modern Physics (Quantum Physics, Nuclear Physics, Relativity).

The Earth’s Atmosphere
Robin Sladd

LESSON 1 of this program covers the importance of atmosphere to man; and then composition of the atmosphere (first in general and then in layers or strata). LESSON 2 deals with subdivisions of the hemisphere, while LESSON 3 discusses the heterosphere and the importance of the troposphere to man. LESSON 4 then reviews, in considerable detail, the importance of the outer atmosphere,

Ocean Waves & Progressive Oscillatory Waves
Robin Sladd

The emphasis of this program is on student understanding, through carefully planned, increasingly difficult responses. Each concept is well illustrated, and students are required to make discriminations, inferences, and judgments with reference to each.

Oceans of the World - Questions and Answers About
Adam

The 100 important questions answered by this course are typical of the questions asked of the National Oceanographic Data Center each year.

But, in addition to answering these questions, this program has a more basic, two-fold purpose: 1) to present factual material on the marine sciences for use by young people (at all grade levels), with the expectation that it will stimulate their imagination, create interest in the subject, and provoke further study, and 2) to supply for teachers a suitable introduction to selected marine subjects, with specific references for additional information.
