Publisher Description:

The towering pyramids in Egypt would not exist without the inclined plane. This simple device transformed the way people do work by allowing workers to move objects without having to lift them vertically. Inclined planes as ramps are vital to modern-day life, allowing trucks to transport everything from furniture to food. Readers learn how to recognize these devices with this engaging narrative as it conveys crucial STEM concepts. The compelling information in this book, including photographs of familiar objects that are inclined planes, allows readers to understand the importance of the inclined plane and the forces that make it work.
