This textbook supplement explains physics in remarkably clear detail. Complemented with black-and-white vintage photographs and illustrations, the book uses ordinary speech to explain the concepts of physics. The authorís goal is to "write at a 6th grade level, but explain the concepts so that a motivated 4th grader can understand the material." Physics equations and formulas are kept to a minimum. The author starts with the simple and goes on to the complex and the development is somewhat historical in nature. Did you know that a feather and a brick will fall at the same rate in a vacuum? Discover how the laws of motion and gravity affect everything from the normal activities of everyday life to launching rockets into space. Learn about the effects of inertia firsthand during fun and informative activities. Learn about the history of physics from Aristotle to Galileo to Newton to the latest advances. This is intended to be an introductory book for beginning physics students. Material of a more difficult nature is found in sidebars entitled "For More Study." Each chapter ends with study questions with answers in the back of the book.
