Physics begins with another M--: mysteries, magic, myth, and modern physics
There is no comparable book to this one. It provides teachers with a comprehensive collection of real life applications of physical principles. It contains a wealth of new ideas for class discussions, research projects, a nd demonstrations. The "mysteries" provide many applications of physical principles in conceptual formats. The "magic" demonstrations represent a collection of discrepant events which are crucial to stimulating curiosity and learning. The "myths" cl ear up misconceptions about physics that occur in everyday language. High School Science Teachers. A Longwood Professional Book.
