Product Description:

Physics can be a hard subject to grasp, but if presentation has anything to do with that, this book could be the answer. In cartoon style, it provides a lighthearted format to a heavy topic. Beginning with motion, the two main characters (a pretty cartoon astronaut, Lucy, and her co-worker, Ringo) present a thorough coverage of physics, including gravity, projectiles, orbits, Newton's laws, forces, momentum, energy, collisions, rotations, charge, electric fields, capacitors, electric currents, magnetic fields, relativity, inductors, AC and DC, quantum electrodynamics, and more. The pages portray the characters demonstrating different concepts in easier-to-understand ways as they explain what is happening. Text (in a cartoonish font) fills in the blanks left by the characters' comments and pictures. A very different - but appealing! - approach to physics. 212 pgs. - Melissa

What is better than taking a difficult subject and making it both fun and visually understandable? Cartoon Guides are great for depicting difficult concepts in a way that students can see.
