A Calendar of Leading Experiments, 1918 free pdf Excerpt from A Calendar of Leading Experiments, 1918 (a) "A boatman sits on a scat, braces his feet against a cleat and pulls on an oar. What forces act on the boatman's body?" The earth pulls on the boatman, the seat pushes on the boatman, the cleat pushes on the boatman and the oar pulls on the boatman. This is all very simple to one who has acquired the habit of analytical thinking, but a large group of sophomore engineering students got an average of 45 per cent in their answers to the question after two weeks of insistent coaching on the fundamental notion of force action, and nearly every human aspect of boating was represented in the answers, including even the chance of a ducking, for several of the young men would have it that the water pushes on the boatman's body. (b) Ask a student of elementary mechanics how a body (a particle) behaves when it is acted upon by an unbalanced force, and the natural habit of thinking-in-terms-of-human-values shows itself after the most exacting class-room drill. Instead of giving his attention narrowly to what is taking place at an instant, the student, in his groping for human values (which do not exist in the bare elements of a subject), is pretty sure to refer to past history and to future prospects- his idea as to what is taking place is apt to remain widely inclusive, as if he were thinking of a complex human experience like two hours at a play, or a month's vacation, or four years of war. Very often the homely wording of the question as stated above betrays the student into a disclosure of his native contempt for precise ideas and he answers naively that "the body moves in the direction of the force." It is very difficult to develop the habit of analytical thinking. Our teachers of mathematics seem to know that they arc responsible for a certain kind of training, and they arc not ashamed to apply themselves narrowly in its accomplishment.
