Conceptual Physics for Parents and Teachers. Volume 1: Mechanics.
Hewitt, Paul G.
For a variety of reasons, too many adults--especially parents and teachers--feel inadequate in science, particularly in physics. This book represents an attempt to help parents and elementary school teachers strengthen their conceptual knowledge of physics. Cartoons are used throughout the reading to illustrate and reinforce concepts. This particular volume addresses the physics of motion. Chapters include: (1) "Being in Equilibrium"; (2) "Linear Motion"; (3) "Newton's Laws of Motion"; (4) "Momentum"; (5) "Energy"; (6) "Rotational Motion"; (7) "Gravity"; (8) "Projectile and Satellite Motion"; and (9) "On Science".
