THE EXPLORING SERIES: Well known for his popular books about science and religion, John Hudson Tiner has been a teacher, mathematician, and a cartographer. Possessing the skills to turn history into a thrilling read, Tiner has published this wonderful new series of books on science, geared toward home educators, but broadly appealing for any elementary age child. Written for 5th grade to junior high level, this series will captivate your attention and give you a broad overview of several major topics.
. Exploring the World of Physics
The latest installment of the wildly successful “Exploring” series, this textbook supplement explains physics in remarkably clear detail. Complemented with black-and-white illustrations, the book uses ordinary speech to explain the concepts of physics. Physics equations and formulas are kept to a minimum. The author starts with the simple and goes on to the complex, and the development is somewhat historical in nature, but is intended to be an introductory book for beginning physics students. Material of a more difficult nature is found in sidebars entitled “For More Study.”
