Yet the advances in physics underlying these applications are poorly understood and widely underappreciated by U.S. citizens today. In this concise overview, David C. Cassidy sharpens our perspective on modern physics by viewing this foundational science through the lens of America's engagement with the political events of a tumultuous century. --from publisher description+-+0184959215123534ocn056068624file20020.39Cassidy, David CUnderstanding physics student guideHandbooks, manuals, etcUnderstanding Physics is an innovative undergraduate course designed for students preparing to enter careers in fields outside of science or engineering, including students planning to teach, or already teaching, in K-12 classrooms. It is inspired by the famous Project Physics Course, which became known for placing the concepts of physics within the broader humanistic contexts in which they arose. The course materials comprise * The textbook, which is divided into two parts that may be studied in either order * This Student Guide, containing inquiry-based laboratory investigations and additional materials * An Instructor Guide with examination questions, resources, and other helpful information These components work together to provide an integrated educational experience in physics. The text contains questions designed to help students confirm what they have learned and to encourage them to explore further, by reading, by experimenting, and in group discussions. The inquiry-based laboratory investigations include in-depth explorations, student-designed inquiries, and text-related mini- laboratory explorations that may be used as hands-on activities or as demonstrations with student participation. The suggested equipment is deliberately "low tech" in order to afford students maximum experience with the phenomena. The apparatus is inexpensive and common to most instructional laboratories. Some ways to incorporate computer usage are suggested as students gain familiarity with the laboratory apparatus and methods+-+3611672385113912ocn023653980book19910.35Cassidy, David CUncertainty : the life and science of Werner HeisenbergHistoryBiography+-+2850721625110015ocn216937034book20080.26Cassidy, David CBeyond uncertainty : Heisenberg, quantum physics, and the bombHistoryBiographyAward winning biographer revisits the controversial life of this well known German physicist to shed new light on troubling questions.

Robert Oppenheimer and the American centuryHistoryBiographyThe unexplored secret of the American Century, the last 100 years of US history, is the rise of American science, specifically physics. At the heart of that story is J. Robert Oppenheimer, leader of the Manhattan Project that built the atomic bomb. He was a man of contradictions: a scientist who discovered blackholes and then turned his back on cutting edge research; a gentle liberal humanist responsible for the creation of the first real weapon of mass destruction; a genius who founded "scientific militarism" and then let it destroy him. His life story embodies the great conflicts of American society, its genius, its weaknesses, and even its essential morality. How did an aesthete man uninterested in the acquisition of power become the leader of American science, the most powerful research community in the world? And how did he, with all his intellectual and social advantages, lose his power and become regarded by many as an unfulfilled if not failed scientist. While it is biography of a physicist, it is also a history of the 20th century offering insights into the "scientific militarism" behind events on the world stage today+-+71442968658596ocn059225333book20050.30Einstein, AlbertRelativity : the special and general theoryRobert Geroch builds on Einstein's work with commentary that addresses the ideas at the heart of the theory, bringing a modern understanding of relativity to the text. He elucidates how special relativity is a reconciliation of the contradictions between the nature of light and the principle of relativity; he expands on Einstein's treatment of the geometry of space-time and the fundamental notion of an "event"; he explains in detail, but without technical language, the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass, a cornerstone of general relativity+-+361713686549012ocn030477381book19950.70Cassidy, David CEinstein and our worldBiography+-+310775640618610ocn011321401book19840.90Cassidy, David CWerner Heisenberg : a bibliography of his writingsBibliographyThe Center for History of Physics at the American Institute of Physics provides a bibliography of the works of the German physicist Werner Karl Heisenberg (1901-1976).

It is inspired by the famous Project Physics Course, which became known for its success in inspiring students with the excitement of physics by placing its concepts within a broader humanistic context. [The text] enables students to gain a full appreciation of physics both as a discipline and as a body of knowledge: a sense of what the concepts mean, where they came from, and why we think we know what we know. The course is among the first to accommodate recommendations of the "National Science Education Standards" from the National Academy of Sciences and the "Benchmarks for Science Literacy" from Project 2061 at the college level. [It] also incorporates the most recent advances in understanding how students learn physics and where they encounter difficulties, and it offers great flexibility to instructors to adapt the course to the needs of their students and to their own needs and interests.-Back cover11ocn712038588art19980.10Cassidy, David C.: History of Science, Science for Non-ScientistsBiographyDirectories+-+2850721625+-+2850721625Thu Oct 16 15:04:17 EDT 2014batch19017
