People are naturally curious. They want to understand the world around them. They want to understand what makes flowers grow and how their own bodies work. The field of science would probably not exist if it were not for human curiosity about the natural world. People also want to be able to make good guesses about the future. They want to know how to use alternative forms of energy. They want to improve technology and communications.
A physical science book that engages students in a way they will easily understand and enjoy.
This book empowers students to make the connection between the science taught in school and the one they experience daily.
Physical Science is the study of non-living systems, as opposed to a study of biological sciences or living systems. It consists of physics, chemistry, astronomy and earth science. It also includes scientific method and experimentation and this is what this textbook is all about.
Physical Science: Investigating Matter and Energy is a primary text for an introductory course covering the physical sciences.
Contents: Science Skills, Properties & States of Matter, Atomic Structure, The Periodic Table, Chemical Bonds & Reactions, Solutions, Acids, and Bases, Carbon Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, Motion, Forces and Motion, Forces in Fluids, Work, Power, and Machines, Energy, Thermal Energy and Heat, Mechanical Waves and Sounds, The Electromagnetic Spectrum and Light, Optics, Electricity, Magnetism, Earth's Interior, Earth's Surface, Weather and Climate, The Solar System & Exploring the Universe.
An introductory science text.
Physical Science with Earth provides students with accurate and comprehensive content coverage of physical science integrated with Earth science. This highly engaging integrated program brings together physics,chemistry, Earth science, space science, and mathematics. This course, together with a biology course, prepares students for many state/district graduation exams administered at 10th grade.
Give every student a deeper understanding of physical science! Glencoe Physical Science with Earth Science provides students with accurate and comprehensive content coverage of physical science integrated with Earth science. This highly engaging program brings together physics, chemistry, Earth science, space science, and mathematics. This course, together with a biology course, prepares students for many state/district graduation exams administered at 10th grade.
The book covers different topics that can be classified under the two main categories Earth science ( that investigates Earth and space) and Physical science (that studies matter and energy.)
This book provides up-to-date, complete coverage of a standard one-year course in physical science for on-grade middle school or off-track high school biology students.
This work-text provides a basic understanding of the theory and clinical skills necessary to function as an entry-level physical therapy aide in different rehabilitation settings. The therapeutic modality procedures that an aide would perform are presented in a step-by-step format with detailed photos. A variety of review questions test comprehension of the material. Learning activities are provided at the end of each chapter for practical application. Benefits: * NEW Over 150 new photographs illustrate various clinical skills and physical therapy modalities * NEW New chapters on the administrative role of the physical therapy aide and getting and keeping a job in physical therapy * NEW Examples of strong resumes and cover letters * NEW Multiculturalism in health care and the need for analytical, problem-solving, and decision-making skills in the workplace * Work-text format prepares learners to become entry-level physical therapy aides * Behavioral objectives and key terms enhance learning and review * Rationales for situational therapeutic treatments * Provides a background in anatomy and physiology as it relates to physical therapy * Full-color insert includes 21 individual illustrations of various structures and systems of the human body
This is an outstanding text with a long history that has been updated and given a fresh look. The Physical Universe is also accompanied by strong media component with the Connect online homework system, personal response system ("clicker") questions, more extensive online quizzing, and PowerPoint lectures. Aimed at presenting the essentials of physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy in a clear, easy-to-understand way,The Physical Universe shows students how science works, how scientists approach problems, and why science constantly evolves in its search for understanding. The text can also be packaged with its long time companion student study guide, which includes a review of chapter terms and concepts; self quizzing for extra practice; and additional solved problems.
The Physical World: An Introduction to Physical Science for Christian Schools was written for you, the curious student. We have filled this textbook with answers to puzzling questions about why things happen and how things work. But this text should do more than simply answer your questions. It is intended to stimulate new questions that will cause you to expand your knowledge. You will be introduced to realms that you have never before explored.
This book deepens one's understanding of physics. Students will begin to make the connection between magnets and MRI, organ pipes and windpipes, lighthouses and magnifying glasses, hurricanes and galaxies.
