Issues in elementary school science by D. C Ipsen( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following issues are examined in this monograph: (a) Should the scientific concepts that are introduced be restricted to those that are needed in describing the scientific facts the child will meet in the program or may concepts be introduced for their own sake or for the sake of demonstrating concept-development methods? (B) Should concepts or facts that are presented to the child be those that meet immediate interests--or perhaps stimulate new ones--or should they look toward some future study of science? (C) Should the methods of science be demonstrated only in their application to scientific investigation, or will abstract demonstrations serve as well? (D) Should the elementary science program emphasize the study by the child of factual material and the observation of natural processes, or should it give the child limited experience in scientific experimentation and the development of scientific concepts and facts? (E) Should science become an important theme in skill-development programs such as reading, writing and arithmetic? (F) Should the only aim of the elementary school science program be to develop the child's understanding of scientific objectives, activities, and accomplishments, or should it instead--or in addition--be to develop the child's working knowledge of scientific concepts and facts and his proficiency in scientific methods? (Br)
Cone drag in a rarefied gas flow by D. C Ipsen( )

5 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tests were conducted to obtain empirical cone-drag information about the intermediate slip-flow regime. The mean free path of the gas adjacent to the cone surface ranged from 10 to 15% of the calculated displacement- thickness of the boundary layer at the base of the cone. The total drag on the fore portion of a 15 deg half-angle cone (3.70-in. slant length) was investigated. A compact remote balance was developed which gave sufficient accuracy for the measurement of the small forces involved. Drag coefficient curves were obtained which are probably accurate to within 2 to 3% or better at M = 4.0 and possibly 5% at M = 2. The experimental results for viscous drag were 10 to 30% above the predictions based on first-order boundary-layer analysis of shear and pressure distribution. A description of the experimental apparatus and details of the calibration and testing techniques are appended
