The Red Lion clove through the burning wall as if it were not there. Once on the other side, the magical barrier winked out of existence. The crew gaped in astonishment.
Even Conan's lightning quickness failed to avoid the monstrous white form that suddenly hurtled upon him from above...
Conan put his back against the wall and lifted his ax. He stood like an image of the unconquerable primordial - legs braced far apart, head thrust forward, one hand clutching the wall for support, the other gripping the ax on high, with the great corded muscles standing out in iron ridges, and his features frozen in a death snarl of fury - his eyes blazing terribly through the mist of blood which veiled them.

Earth Science Features include Hands-On Activity, Hour Do They Know That? People in Science, Integrating the Sciences, Real-Life Science, Science and Technology, Investigate and Web InfoSearch.
The topics covered in this book include scientific skills & methods, studying the earth, minerals, rocks & how they form, wearing down the earth, agents of erosion, building up the earth, plate tectonics, the rock record, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, weather, climate, natural resources, among others.
This textbook contains lessons on Scientific Methods and Skills; Force; Energy and Work; Motion; Machines; Heat; Waves; Sound; Light; Electricity; Magnetism; Matter; Density; Atoms; Compounds and Mixtures; Chemical Formulas; Chemical Reactions; Metals; Solutions; Suspensions; Acids, Bases, and Salts, etc.
Physical science is the study of both physics and chemistry. You will learn about new concepts while studying the book. What do you think are some other things that you will study in physical science?
The exercises constituting this laboratory manual are intended to supplement the text Concepts in Biology.
This book is intended for students who want to gain a conceptual grasp of the various fields of genetics, incorporating current trends in the field.
This innovative text presents computer programming as a unified discipline in a way that is both practical and scientifically sound. The book focuses on techniques of lasting value and explains them precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. The book presents all major programming paradigms in a uniform framework that shows their deep relationships and how and where to use them together. After an introduction to programming concepts, the book presents both well-known and lesser-known computation models ("programming paradigms"). Each model has its own set of techniques and each is included on the basis of its usefulness in practice. The general models include declarative programming, declarative concurrency, message-passing concurrency, explicit state, object-oriented programming, shared-state concurrency, and relational programming. Specialized models include graphical user interface programming, distributed programming, and constraint programming. Each model is based on its kernel language--a simple core language that consists of a small number of programmer- significant elements. The kernel languages are introduced progressively, adding concepts one by one, thus showing the deep relationships between different models. The kernel languages are defined precisely in terms of a simple abstract machine. Because a wide variety of languages and programming paradigms can be modeled by a small set of closely related kernel languages, this approach allows programmer and student to grasp the underlying unity of programming. The book has many program fragments and exercises, all of which can be run on the Mozart Programming System, an Open Source software package that features an interactive incremental development environment.
Conceptual Physical Science, Second Edition, with its important ancillaries, provides a first introduction to physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy, melded in a manner to captivate student interest.
Physics textbook for high school and college.
Textbook on physical science.
Conceptual Physical Science: Explorations introduces physical science to students using a conceptual approach. It melds physics, chemistry, Earth science, and astronomy, in a manner that captivates student interest. This second edition of CPSE is a major upgrade from the first edition. In addition to a smoother flow of topics and updates to scientific advances (especially in astronomy) numerous new and exciting features are designed to help students learn most efficiently.
Conceptual Physics, Tenth Edition helps readers connect physics to their everyday experiences and the world around them with additional help on solving more mathematical problems. Hewitt's text is famous for engaging readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. Included in the package is the workbook. Mechanics, Properties of Matter, Heat, Sound, Electricity and Magnetism, Light, Atomic and Nuclear Physics, Relativity. For all readers interested in conceptual physics.
The author treats physics conceptually in this book, which means concepts are presented in familiar English, with equations as "guides to thinking." Comprehension of concepts before calculation is the key to understanding. Enjoy your physics!
This book guides the reader to see physics as the rules of the physical world, and to teach how the equations of physics reveal the connections in nature, focusing on the physics concepts themselves, their similarities, and their differences. This book contains analogies and clear explanations, more qualitative questions than algebraic problems to discover physics as fascinating, to provide a solid science foundation, and to see that knowledge of physics is important to overall education.
This seventh edition of the popular and exceptionally well written physics concept text with minimal mathematics contains new material sprinkled throughout, such as a treatment of measurements of the earth, moon, and sun by the early Greeks, capacitors, and more on rainbows. Individual sections have been clarified and updated. Problem sets are now at the end of most chapters. Most problems involve simple calculations that require minimal algebra skills. The text is profusely illustrated in full color with many helpful diagrams and down-to-earth examples. Annotation C. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Select your format based upon: 1) how you want to read your book, and 2) compatibility with your reading tool. To learn more about using Bookshare with your device, visit the "Using Bookshare" page in the Help Center.
Here is an overview of the specialized formats that Bookshare offers its members with links that go to the Help Center for more information.
- Bookshare Web Reader - a customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
- DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - a digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
- BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
- MP3 (Mpeg audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
- DAISY Audio - Similar to the Daisy 3.0 option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivona's Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
