STORY OF SCIENCE: ARISTOTLE LEADS THE WAY

$24.95
Not too long ago, in earth time, no one thought the universe had a history. The scientific and religious experts believed that the world had been created as it is today and that nothing had changed. Those experts did their best but they were wrong--really wrong. The Story of Science: Aristotle Leads the Way tells the amazing but true story of the quest to answer an important question: What is this universe of ours all about? From the lost city of Alexandria with its gigantic lighthouse and steam-powered vehicles, to faraway lands where Hindu and Arab mathematicians invented the number zero, Hakim invites readers of all ages to meet the forefathers of modern science and experience their greatest discoveries in astronomy, math, and physics. Along the way, readers learn the answers to questions like:

What can a baboon bone tell us about calendars?

Why can't we feel the earth moving?

How did math contribute to Archimedes' death?

A science book unlike any other, Aristotle Leads the Way pairs a gripping narrative style with quirky sidebars; hundreds of charts, maps, and diagrams; experiments to do at home; suggestions for further reading; and excerpts from the writings of great scientists.

ILLUSTRATED LONGITUDE

$28.00
When Dava Sobel's Longitude was published to universal acclaim in 1995, readers voiced only one regret: that it was not illustrated. Now, William Andrewes, the man who organized and hosted the Longitude Symposium that inspired her book, has joined Dava Sobel to create a richly illustrated version of her classic story.

The Illustrated Longitude recounts in words and images the epic quest to solve the thorniest scientific problem of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Throughout the great age of exploration, sailors attempted to navigate the oceans without any means of measuring their longitude: All too often, voyages ended in total disaster when both crew and cargo were captured or lost upon the rocks of an unexpected landfall. Thousands of lives and the fortunes of seafaring nations hung on a resolution.

To encourage a solution, governments established major prizes for anyone whose method or device proved successful. The largest reward of £20,000-truly a king's ransom-was offered by the British Parliament in 1714. The scientific establishment-from Galileo to Sir Isaac Newton-had been certain that a celestial answer would be found and invested untold effort in this pursuit. In stark contrast, one man, John Harrison, imagined and built the unimaginable: a clock that solved the problem by keeping precise time at sea, called today the chronometer. His trials and tribulations to win the prize throughout a forty-year obsession are the culmination of this remarkable story.

The Illustrated Longitude contains the entire original narrative of Longitude, redesigned to accompany 178 images chosen by Will Andrewes: from portraits of every important figure in the story to maps, diagrams, and photographs of scientific instruments, especially John Harrison's remarkable clocks. Andrewes's elegant captions emphasize the scientific and historical events surrounding the images, and they tell their own dramatic story of longitude, paralleling and illuminating Dava Sobel's memorable tale.

MB Astronomy Book,THE

$15.99
One thing we have in common with the ancients is that all of the human race has gazed at the night sky, and the bright morning, and wondered, "What's out there?" Our universe is so vast and awe-inspiring that to learn about it is to learn about ourselves.

The Astronomy Book will teach you:
What long-ago astronomers thought about other worlds.
Solar system facts.
How constellations relate to astrology.
The history of space exploration.
Black holes - do they exist?
The origin and age of the moon.
Why Mars doesn't support life.
The composition of stars, supernova remnants, and the myth of star birth.
Asteroid legends and the extinction of the dinosaurs.
Are there planets outside our solar system, and could they be home to intelligent life?
What are UFOs?
The age of comets and meteor showers.

Learning about the universe is huge fun! In the almost infinite expanse above us, we can examine planets, galaxies, and phenomena so beautiful and complex that we never outgrow a childlike wonder. We see our own reflection in the moon, the stars, and in comet trails. The more we learn, the less we fear!

USED TOPS - SOLUTIONS (USED)

$8.00
This unit begins with corn starch. Mixed cold, it forms a coarse suspension that clears by filtering or settling. When boiled it forms both a cloudy colloidal suspension and clear true solution. Concepts and vocabulary learned here are then applied to a series of tasks that clean muddy water. Alum coagulates the clay, chlorination bleaches all traces of food coloring, but only distillation makes it pure. Students then use rock salt, baking soda, Epsom salt and copper sulfate to study about crystals, concentration and saturation, plus variables that influence rates of dissolving and limits of solubility. The book is organized into three main parts: INTRODUCTION * A TOPS Model for Effective Science Teaching * Getting Ready * Gathering Materials * Sequencing Task Cards * Long Range Objectives * Review / Test Questions TEACHING NOTES (28 lessons)* Two Kinds of Filters * Two Ways to Purify * A matter of Size * Definitions * Clearing Muddy Waters * Coagulation * Purify By Chlorination * Purify By Distillation * Oil and Water * In Between * Alcohol and Water * What Kind of Mixture? * Hot and Cold * Particle Size * Saturation * Can More Dissolve? * Frosted Glass * Basic Shapes * Water Spots * Equilibrium * Rate of Dissolving (1) * Rate of Dissolving (2) * Water of Hydration (1) * Hydration (2) * Solubility Variables * Solubility Curves * Negative Solubility * Supersaturation REPRODUCIBLE LINE MASTERS* 28 Open-Ended Task Cards * Cube Pattern * Equilibrium Strip * Graph PaperAuthor: Ron Marson, Illustrated by Peg MarsonSubject Area: ChemistryLevel: Grades 6-10Format: 72 pages, PaperbackPublisher: TOPS Learning Systems (1990)ISBN: 0-941008-82-7
