Hands-on physics activities with real-life applications

This comprehensive collection of nearly 200 investigations, demonstrations, mini-labs, and other activities uses everyday examples to make physics concepts easy to understand. For quick access, materials are organized into eight units covering Measurement, Motion, Force, Pressure, Energy & Momentum, Waves, Light, and Electromagnetism. Each lesson contains an introduction with common knowledge examples, reproducible pages for students, a "To the Teacher" information section, and a listing of additional applications students can relate to.

Over 300 illustrations add interest and supplement instruction. This comprehensive collection of nearly 200 investigations, demonstration, mini-labs, and other activities uses everyday examples to make physics concepts ways to understand. It is part of the two-volume PHYSICAL SCIENCE CURRICULUM LIBRARY , which includes Hands-On Physics Activities and Hands-On Chemistry Activities For easy use, this resource is organized into the eight units of study listed below. Each unit offers a variety of activities designed to provide interaction between students and their world in a way that encourages scientific reasoning. Measurement Motion Force Pressure Energy and Momentum Waves Light Electromagnetism Each easy-to-follow lesson format contains a concise introduction using common knowledge examples...reproducible pages for students...a "To the Teacher" information section...and a separate listing of additional, specific applications that students can relate to.

Also included is a handy appendix that contains listings of physical quantities and their units, common conversions, units of pressure, and more. And as a special help, each lesson provides complete answer keys and enough detailed explanation to ensure success for even the inexperienced science teacher. You'll find Hands-on Physics Activities can be used to supplement any physical science textbook or as a stand-alone physics program in itself. However you use it, these activities will help you inject new vitality into your curriculum.
