We need natural resources to survive. Natural resources are things that nature gives us. But we need to be careful that we do not use too many of Earth's resources. We need to take care of Earth because it takes care of us! Colorful images, supporting text, a glossary, table of contents, and index all work together to help readers better understand the content and be fully engaged from cover to cover.
Find three-dimensional shapes while learning about architecture and historic architects! A good understanding of geometry and three-dimensional shapes is essential for architects building houses because all houses have three-dimensional shapes like pentagons and prisms. Readers can follow the process of building a house from start to finish, mastering geometric concepts through practice problems. These problems, along with clear mathematical diagrams, easy-to-read text, and vibrant images will keep readers engaged and confident in their geometry skills and STEM skills.
Some of the first geologists came from ancient Greece and Egypt. Later, scientists in China studied how land was formed and figured out how erosion wears away mountains, rocks, and other landforms. Scottish scientist James Hutton's The Theory of the Earth became the basis for modern geology. William Smith started out as a farmer, but went on to create what is thought to be the first geologic map. German Friedrick Mohs studied minerals and came up with a hardness identification scale that is still used by every geologist.
