"This book uses real-world examples to bring the concepts of force and motion to life in an approachable way. Clearly-written text draws in readers with concrete examples involving familiar, everyday things, from the Hubble Telescope to a game of tug-of-war. The book covers the history of and key figures in the understanding of force and motion, including Galileo, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking. Major concepts covered include Newton's Laws of Motion, friction, gravity, electromagnetism, weight, and momentum. Full-color photos, a glossary, an index, sidebars, primary source documents, and other creative content enhance the book. It also includes prompts and activities that directly engage students in developing the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills promoted by the Common Core standards."--From publisher.
