The Essential Atlas Series - All books in this series
Newest in Barron’s series of popular illustrated science reference guides, the Essential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry explains fundamental principles of both sciences and shows how they relate to one another. Text and illustrations are combined in an easy-to-understand yet scientifically accurate context. The related concepts of energy and heat are explained in terms of their uses in both simple and complex machines. Also explained are the characteristics of liquids, gases, and solids. Other subjects covered are the characteristics of sound, light, electricity and magnetism, atomic structure, the periodic table of elements, and simple chemical reactions. Full-color photos, artwork, and diagrams on every page complement clear textual descriptions.
From the Reviews:
“Barron’s Educational Series has hit the jackpot by blending together a plethora of graphics and simple explanations to breathe life into the wonderful book Esential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry. ... This 96-page resource provides the reader with eye-catching (and eye-holding) photos and diagrams. Perhaps best of all, the illustrations complement the easy-to-understand text. ... Middle school and high school students should have access to a copy of Essential Atlas of Physics and Chemistry. This reference comes in handy as a supplementary resource. It offers a review of many concepts included in National Education Science Standards for Upper Elementary and Middle School children. Secondary students would benefit from this resource as well. ... I recommend that both school and public libraries include this atlas on their shelves.”
