Ebook “Fizzyx for Fun” Makes Physics Accessible for Young People
Author-illustrator and educator Cynthia Montgomery presents physics theory in easy steps, building concept on concept through humor, cartoons, funny stories and play.
By sequentially breaking down basic physical concepts into easy steps with cartoons, amusing illustrations, funny stories, stimulating experiments, and creative activities, ‘Fizzyx for Fun’ is an attempt to replace intimidation with confidence and enjoyment, perhaps even to give a glimpse of the beauty of Physics! With 10,000 words, 30 experiments and almost 100 cartoons and illustrations, ‘Fizzyx For Fun’ presents Newton's Physics to middle school students in a way that is entertaining, accessible and gender-neutral—
As the contents of Fizzyx for Fun meet many of the Prescribed Science Learning Outcomes for Grades 6 – 9, it would be an important resource for school libraries and classroom teachers, although not limited to that purpose. In addition, the author has tried to ensure that the suggested activities are safe for children, easy, and using commonly available materials. The intention is that a young person would be able to go through this book either alone or with a friend or parent, and would be able to obtain a basic grasp of fundamental physical principles.
A free electronic book version of “Fizzyx for Fun”, normally priced at $9.95, will be available for you to download for free, either on e-reader or desktop, until December 5 at https://www.smashwords.com/
