What is the matter with matter? And what's this stuff called Polyisopropene? In his new book "Creative Experimenting Using Rubber Bands" Author David Tracy helps the reader to identify, confront, and overcome their preconceived notions, and misconceptions, about matter and energy by using ordinary rubber bands to perform and series of surprising experiments. Presented in a creative, intuitive, hands-on style, the book introduces the reader to a short history of science, and the search for a "primordial stuff," before delving into the life of Galileo and the first experiments into the nature of motion. Many of the projects and experiments are simple, inexpensive, and produce interesting results for anyone with a sincere interest in the physics and chemistry of polymers and their many modern uses. The book is intended for creative thinkers and those who are in search of creative new ways of looking at old problems, but can also be used by students of science in search of new understanding.
