Physics 8. Workbook

The book series Science for Teenagers familiarises the age group of 10-16 with the basics of up-to-date knowledge in the field of natural sciences. The material is based on the observation of nature; it teaches children to understand, discover and protect the environment. Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Geography books have been written and designed in the framework of a coherent and unified curriculum project. This project combines some of the traditional material and methodology with the new elements, defined by the National Curriculum.

Introducing basic ideas and principles of natural sciences this textbook series includes many applications and examples to demonstrate how science is relevant to everyday life. It supports teachers with a variety of materials to promote effective learning. Each book is designed to be accessible to students of a wide range of ability. Key concepts are easy to access in the text and important facts are summarised at the end of each chapter. The highly illustrated material is made more interesting with supplementary readings and topics of special interest. The 19 textbook is accompanied by workbooks with exercises and worksheets. Curricula and syllabi are available for teachers using these books.


The most important principles defining the content and perspective of our books on physics:

The basis for knowledge is the experiments performed by students or teachers and the everyday knowledge of the children. These are discussed and analysed, so that students may understand and explain them, develop their own notions of certain phenomena, and explore the underlying principles and rules. To intensify the gained knowledge our books have texts as well as pictures, thereby making the experience as personal as possible.

The aim is to introduce the following ideas:

Emphasis is laid on the teaching of laws of conservation and the correlation which forms their basis, as well as its application as an organising principle.
Both kinds of material (those of corpuscle structure and the fields) are presented as being in constant interrelationship, and how they are applied as explanatory principles.
Body and material, their characteristics; the difference between quantities characterising hese, how they belong to each other.
Physics co-ordinated with mathematics and the other natural sciences both from the point of view of perspective and chronology.

According to the age group of students a grid of notions helps organise the material, thereby making it possible to deepen the understanding of different notions in physics. Besides, the co-ordination between theory and practice is created.
One of the aims of learning physics is to understand the most general phenomena of nature and to be able to apply the laws and concepts of physics. It is just as important to see other roles of physics, which are the formation of the personality, the development of skills, and its overall effect, which makes it possible to find our way in nature, technology and in the flow of information.

The condensed texts of the book are made more colourful and more easy to learn by the addition of drawings, photographs, pictures, charts and tables.
The application of the learnt material is made more easy by questions to be found after each chapter. These are: Don’t forget. Check what you have learnt. Experiment. Think and answer. Observe this. Calculate.
