The Physical Science Study Committee, usually abbreviated as PSSC, was inaugurated at a 1956 conference at MIT . The book, subtitled The Methods, Nature, and Philosophy of Physical Science, was based on courses he gave at Princeton University, where he taught from 1942 to 1971.

It produced major new physics textbooks, instructional movies, and classroom laboratory material. Rogers also headed the Nuffield Science Teaching Project program in physics education in the 1960s.

PSSC PHYSICS: A Personal Perspective

PSSC PHYSICS: A Personal Perspective. by Uri Haber-Schaim Introduction Early in 1957 Jerrold Zacharias called a meeting of the faculty of the Department of Physics at MIT to brief us on his initiative to develop a physics course for high schools. He reported on a conference held at MIT in December 1956 and on plans to hold a working session at MIT in the coming summer to produce a draft of the new course to be tried out in some schools.

I generally despise most science books. Occasionally one rises from the muck and gets my attention. This is one of them.
Before even reading it, I had a good hint that this was a winner when I discovered how the topics in it were chosen. The authors surveyed many groups: Physics professors, Physics teachers, Physics students (high school and college), and professional scientists. They asked about important topics and unimportant topics. They looked into what they wished they knew better and what they didn't have much use for. They also looked into utility: does this topic lead to other topics or is it an end in itself.
They discovered that circuitry is a dead end, but fields are not. Thus, circuitry is relegated to an optional chapter and fields are in the main part of the book.
The book has 20 required chapters based on the surveys I mentioned earlier. At the end are 8 optional chapters that contain other traditional Physics concepts that many teachers may wish to include. Circuitry, for example, is one many teachers feel should be included.
The book does a nice job in organizing material. There is no right way, but there are plenty of wrong ones. This book develops ideas between chapters. For example, they begin by analyzing linear motion (but not acceleration). Then, in the next chapter, they add forces and acceleration, which is then linked to the material in the chapter before.
The authors do not shy away from advanced material. They are willing to put it where it belongs, but do not bury it in jargon. For example, they may introduce the derivative, but not go into all the terminology. It's enough that the concept is there (in a Physics, not Math sense).
If I could have a dream Physics book for the Physics I teach, this book is it.

This was a widely used text a generation back, still mentioned but no longer in print. Since even a large and expensive text has some limits, and the class year also has time limits, every author (or committee) has to make some decisions on what to include and at how much detail.
In Physics, this often means where to gloss over something that otherwise may lead quickly into deep water. Two examples are simple harmonic motion, and heat, energy and thermodynamics.
I wanted to see how much this differs from the current standard introductory texts, so I looked for a used good condition copy.
This was a good book; you could still teach a course from it.

Excellent book. Thanks a lot!!

I ordered a used, hardback version of this magnificent book (which I remembered from high school) at the lowest price available ($23) and for what was billed as in "good" shape. It arrived in a few days and in superb condition, better than the seller had promised. They did a great job.

satisfactory

This is a great historical artifact these days, but still a relevant gateway into physics.

A whole generation of students (including myself) got to know Physics thanks to the PSSC textbooks. It is a glmpse of a past experience coming back to me.
Easy to understand overview.
