Synopsis: This module introduces the process of fission and fusion. It explains these two reactions produces nuclear energy. To account for nuclear binding energy, we can use Einstein’s equation that incorporates energy and mass.
Details: The module is concise and straightforward. It follows most of the proposed outline for the module, but does not include any possible problems. The details seemed justifiable and logical. The figure were useful, but can possibly be made more neatly; the external link is helpful. Maybe more figures can be added, such as, showing the process of fission and fusion. The format of the module is easy to read and organized.
Specific Points to fix:
1. Create five possible problems to enhance the learning of fission and fusion.
2. Create more figures to help picture the process of fission and fusion.
3. Reword some of the introduction to make it easier to understand
4. Link related modules to help understanding nuclear energy
5. Maybe include background facts about how fission and fusion were discovered, just to make the module more interesting.
