Each easy-to-follow lesson format contains a concise introduction using common knowledge examples...reproducible pages for students...a "To the Teacher" information section...and a separate listing of additional, specific applications that students can relate to.

More than 300 illustrations supplement instruction, and interest, and heighten the learning process. Also included is a handy appendix that contains listings of physical quantities and their units, common conversions, units of pressure, and more.
