Give readers an accessible and comprehensible survey of the basic laws of motion and forces, enlivened by engaging and exciting real world examples of theoretical principles at work. The laws of motion are outlined in uncomplicated prose, and practical illustrations of them are provided by student-friendly activities like baseball and amusement park rides. The greatest thinkers and formulators of the laws of motion and forces are profiled, and the latest cutting-edge developments in the study and application of motion and forces are detailed. Fact-filled and fun sidebars support the narrative and a rich resource section is included for further exploration.
This series covers concepts in chemistry, biology, and physics. There are photographs, diagrams, and sidebars to help explain some concepts, yet the set lacked the visual appeal needed to engage students. All of the links from the publisher's web portal were active at the time of this review and linked to high quality, age appropriate sites. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index.
