Exploring the World of Physics
In this recent installment, the author uses ordinary speech to explain the concepts of physics. The author’s goal is to “write at a 6th grade level, but explain the concepts so that a motivated 4th grader can understand the material.” Physics equations and formulas are kept to a minimum. The author starts with the simple and goes on to the complex, and the development is somewhat historical in nature, but is intended to be an introductory book for beginning physics students. Material of a more difficult nature is found in sidebars entitled “For More Study.”
Exploring Planet Earth
A textbook for 5th grade to junior high level, similar in style to public school texts, but with a creationism perspective of history. With definitions of terms and identification of famous explorers, scientists, etc., this book gives students an excellent initial knowledge of people and places, encouraging them to continue their studies in depth. Supplemented with illustrations and photographs.
