R. M. HELMS WRITES
High School Physics, by R. M.
Helms, G. H. S. science teacher,
the result of four years’ work, is
being used as a new text and work
book this year, as an experiment be
fore having it copyrighted and pub
In the nature of an introduction
to the workbook is the Creed of a
Science Student, which has been
used by the I. O. O. S. club for
several years. This creed maintains
the right to investigate and learn
the secrets of nature because human
progress has been based upon their
knowledge, and accepts the respon
sibility which increased power
places upon the enlightened student.
The workbook consists of fifteen
complete units. Each imit has a
list of projects -which are designed
to appeal to all phases of student
interest, such as collections, handi
crafts and essays.
Among the collections is one
showing the floating of objects of
different densities in various liquids.
Troii is shown floating on mercury,
but sinking in all other liquids.
Coal is shown floating in chloro
form, while hardwood floats in wa
ter, but sinks in kerosene.
Every exercise includes an intro
duction and several demonstrations.
In addition, there are twenty-nine
experiments which each student is
Tests given before and after the
study of each unit aid in determin
ing the student’s progress. A sum
mary sheet gives a concise discus
sion of the unit as a whole.
No textbook is required, but it is
desirable to have copies of different
physics texts in the classroom for
references. This plan reduces the
book cost considerably.
