Do you confuse boron with barium or chlorine with fluorine? Fear not Basher Science has come to the rescue by mixing science and art to create a unique periodic table. From unassuming oxygen to devious manganese, the incredible elements show you the periodic table as you've never seen it before.
Basher Science: The Periodic Table gives a face, voice and personality to the chemical elements, making learning chemistry easy and a whole lot more fun. This new expanded edition reflects the latest discoveries, and now each of the 115 elements has not just a picture but an information-packed page all to itself.
Basher's highly original books make difficult concepts tangible, understandable and even lovable. With his stylish, contemporary characters he communicates science brilliantly.
Written by Adrian Dingle and Dan Green. The jaunty prose of this handbook accurately introduces the periodic table. Group color-coding on the standard matrix is repeated throughout, as each personified element gives its own attributes (e.g., Calcium: "They call me 'The Scaffolder'") and oddly anthropomorphized manga characters reinforce the point (Calcium wears a tool belt and hardhat). Standard data (symbol, atomic number, etc.) accompany each element. Removable poster included. Glos., ind.
