Publications by Robert G Fuller
Most widely held works by Robert G Fuller
Physics, including human applications by Harold Q Fuller( Book )
7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide

A love of discovery : science education, the second career of Robert Karplus by Robert G Fuller( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
Robert Karplus, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, became a leader in the movement to reform elementary school science in the 1960s. This book selects the enduring aspects of his work and presents them for the scientists and science educators of today. In an era when `science education for ALL students' has become the clarion call, the insights and works of Robert Karplus are as relevant now as they were in the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. This book tries to capture the essence of his life and work and presents selections of his published articles in a helpful context
Danger! Marines at work! by Robert G Fuller( Book )
6 editions published between 1957 and 1960 in English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
College teaching and the development of reasoning by Robert G., Ed Fuller( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
This book is intended to offer college faculty members the insights of the development of reasoning movement that enlighten physics educators in the late 1970s and led to a variety of college programs directed at improving the reasoning patterns used by college students. While the original materials were directed at physics concepts, they quickly expanded to include other sciences and the humanities and social sciences. On-going developments in the field will be included. The editors have introduced new topics, including discussions of Vygotsky's ideas in relation to those of Piaget, of science education research progress since 1978, of constructivist learning theory applied to educational computer games and of applications from anthropology to zoology. These materials are especially relevant for consideration by current university faculty in all subjects. Following an Introduction and History, contents include fourteen chapters: (1) How Students Reason; (2) Concrete and Formal Reasoning; (3) Formal Reasoning Patterns; (4) Interviews of College Students; (5) College Student Research Findings; (6) Analysis of Test Questions; (7) Analysis of Textbooks; (8) Self-Regulation; (9) The Learning Cycle; (10) Teaching Goals and Strategies; (11) Implementation; (12) Progress since 1978; (13) Theoretical Foundations for College Learning: Sorting Fact from Fiction; and (14) College Programs. Bibliography and Index are also included. Appended are: (1) Additional Readings; and (2) Physics Teaching and Development of Reasoning Materials[C] 1975 aapt

Twin views of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse ( visu )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Consists of two segments which describe the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940 and provide an explanation for the large amplitude resonance vibration of the bridge, the nodal line on the surface of the roadway, and the total collapse
The puzzle of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse by Robert G Fuller( visu )
5 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
This interactive videodisc introduces students to the physics of wave motion and resonance. The object of the disc is to teach the physics of sympathetic vibrations in such a way that students understand the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The content is presented at three levels of instruction. Includes footage and stills of the construction and collapse of the bridge, and statements from observers and experts involved in the investigation of the collapse
Physics and automobile collisions an instructional videodisc for laboratory measurements by Dean Zollman( visu )
2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
This disc contains high speed films of automobile collisions. Students may utilize this database to study momentum, Newton's laws and mechanical energy. By playing the disc in slow motion and freezing frames when a measurement is to be taken, students can record data by measuring distances on the screen. Includes sections on air bags, seat belts, collision time, energy transfer, car barriers and different angles of collision

4 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This video collection uses short segments to illustrate fundamental principles of physics
Toys in space ( visu )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Collection of thirteen short demonstrations which show the behaviour of common toys in zero gravity conditions in the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1985. Excerpts from a post-flight news conference are included. The notes explain the effects of zerogravity
Physics vignettes a series of sixteen physics what if ...? video scenarios ( visu )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Intended for use with introductory physics text, including conceptual, high school, college and university texts. Demonstrates 16 vignettes of the laws of physics
Physics with human applications by Harold Q Fuller( Book )
