Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321051629, Paperback)
If we teach children the basic laws of science correctly, it will build a strong foundation for learning science in the future. This book is Paul Hewitt's vision of how to explain these basic concepts to children. Only the attuned ear can fully appreciate a Beethoven symphony; only the cultivated palette can fully appreciate a fine Bordeaux; and only the mind that is familiar with the rules can fully appreciate the physical world. How fortunate is a child who is influenced by a knowledgeable teacher. Therefore, a knowledgeable teacher can be akin to a fine chef who supplies savory and healthful ingredients to what might have otherwise be a bland soup. This book was written for a general audience and assumes no prior knowledge of physics or mathematics. It contains author-drawn cartoons explain difficult concepts and make learning physics fun and less intimidating and explains such concepts as speed, friction, gravity, energy, and motion.
