150 p. 

This student guide is for the second year of the Portland Project, a three-year integrated secondary school science curriculum. "Motion and Energy," the first of the two parts in this volume, begins with the study of motion, going from the quantitative description of motion to a consideration of what causes motion and a discussion of Newton's laws. There follows the development of the laws of conservation of momentum and energy, including a discussion of energy in biological systems, and culminating with a discussion of the kinetic molecular theory. The major objective of "Chemical Reactions," part two, is to build some of those basic chemical concepts that are necessary for the analytical approach in parts three and four of the third year course: "The Chemistry of Living Matter" and "Energy Capture and Growth." Some of the topics considered in part two include the mole concept, equation writing, energetics associated with chemical reactions, the dynamic nature of particles and their interactions, and the application of energy and equilibrium to chemical systems. The Harvard Physics Project textbook and the Chemical Educational Materials Study (CHEMS) textbook are used for most of the reading assignments in the second year course. A review of the development of the three-year program, its rationale and content, and a three-year course subject outline are included. (Also see SE 013 702, SE 013 703, SE 013 705, and SE 013 706.)
