An introductory text on physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy, designed to capture student interest. Emphasis is on comprehension of basic concepts rather than mathematical language and mathematical problems. Treatments is quite visual, with color photos, diagrams, and humorous illustrations. Pedagogical features include summaries of terms, review questions, exercises, home projects, and sample exam questions. This second edition contains many new chapters, and new boxed readings relating science concepts to familiar things and events in the student's world. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
