    The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics

    The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics

    - A MATH-FREE EXPLORATION OF THE SCIENCE THAT MADE OUR WORLD. Signed, handwritten message written by author on inside cover page. Limited quantities on hand. A highly entertaining exploration of the complicated science of quantum mechanics made easy to understand by way of pop culture. As a young science fiction fan, physicist James Kakalios marveled at the future predicted in the pulp magazines, comics, and films of the '50s and '60s. By 2010, he was sure we'd have flying cars and jetpacks. But what we ended up with-laptop computers, MRI machines, Blu-ray players, and dozens of other real-life marvels-are even more fantastic. In The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics, he explains why the development of quantum mechanics enabled our amazing present day.

    Preconceptions in Mechanics

    Preconceptions in Mechanics

    Pre-school sale. Everyone saves $5. This second edition of Charles Camp and John J. Clement's book, Preconceptions in Mechanics: Lessons for Dealing with Students' Conceptual Difficulties, Second Edition, contains a set of 24 innovative lessons and laboratories in mechanics for high school physics classrooms that was developed by a team of teachers and science education researchers. Research has shown that certain student preconceptions conflict with current physical theories and seem to resist change when using traditional instructional techniques. This book provides a set of lessons that are aimed specifically at these particularly troublesome areas: Normal Forces, Friction, Newton's Third Law, Relative Motion, Gravity, Inertia, and Tension. The lessons can be used to supplement any course that includes mechanics. Each unit contains detailed step by step lesson plans, homework and test problems, as well as background information on common student misconceptions, an overall integrated teaching strategy, and key aspects of the targeted core concepts. This edition has a number of substantial changes based on teacher input. A number of the lessons are adaptable for college level courses as well. Evaluations using pre and post tests have shown large gain differences over control groups. Product Code OP - 72
