In this book, students see the NextGen Science process at work in a real-world situation. Readers practice close reading as they look for clues that will lead to a deeper understanding of structures and engineering. The NextGen Science process pushes students to apply critical thinking as they learn new methods of exploration and build on concepts they may already know. Additional tools, including a glossary and index, help students learn new vocabulary and locate information.
Explores the states of matter, the building blocks of everything in the universe, as well as influential scientists in the field
This book explains the history and characteristics of light and how it is used. Reading Essentials in Science.
Expanding on our popular Lets Explore Science series, this book focuses on light and sound. Every day, waves bring light and sound. A wave is a disturbance that travels through matter or space. Students will learn about electromagnetic and mechanical waves, the properties of waves and sound, pitch, amplitude, and the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as how all these things affect the products we use and even us as humans! This book will allow students to apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
Solids, liquids, and gases are all around you! In this book, you'll see the states of matter at parties!
Explains what light and vision are; describes the scientific method; and includes experiments testing different light and vision concepts.
Explains what matter is and its different states; describes the scientific method; and includes experiments testing different matter concepts.
