This teaching guide supports the series Go Facts: Physical Science. Each pupil book is a model of well-written, accurate and easy-to-read non-fiction. The author has incorporated a variety of text types and specific features of non-fiction texts that pupils are required to study in literacy lessons, including information reports, explanations, instructions and discussions. Go Facts are ideal for combining topic work and literacy lessons.
What if Einstein played rugby? Surely Time Magazine's "Man of the Century" might offer useful tips and techniques to defeat the opposition? In this book, the world of physics joins forces with the world of rugby, to show you how to tackle harder, pass safer, run faster, and scrum better - all the things you need to do to win. Blending simple physics, the kind you meet in high school, with anecdotes and stories from the world of rugby, Trevor Lipscombe takes us on a journey from scrum ruck and maul, to the running and passing of the offence, the chasing and tackling of the defence, through the kicking of penalties, to dressing for success in scorching summer sevens or winning in the winter. Physics at last comes alive, for here we look at a scrum, say, show what Newton's laws have to say about it, and then use the physics to see how to improve rugby. For any rugby fan with a smattering of science, or any science buff who knows the rudiments of rugby, "The Physics of Rugby" should delight, entertain, and instruct.

This series uses cartoon style illustrations and humorous narrative text to make key topics in science and geography both accessible and engaging. This approach encourages children to read about and understand complex ideas. This is the story of how electrical energy is generated in a power station, how it travels through pylons, power cables and wires until it reaches towns and homes. We learn how electrical current is created and how it is made safe. This title also contains an experiment, more great facts to know, useful websites and an index.
This book provides a detailed model of both the discourse and knowledge of physics and offers insights toward developing pedagogy that improves how physics is taught and learned. Building on a rich history of applying a Systemic Functional Linguistics approach to scientific discourse, the book uses an SFL framework, here extended to encompass the more recently developed Systemic Functional Multimodal Discourse Analysis approach, to explore the field's multimodal nature and offer detailed descriptions of three of its key semiotic resources - language, image, and mathematics. To complement the book's SFL underpinnings, Doran draws on the sociological framework of Legitimation Code Theory, which offers tools for understanding the principles of how knowledge is developed and valued, to explore the manifestation of knowledge in physics specifically and its relationship with discourse. Through its detailed descriptions of the key semiotic resources and its analysis of the knowledge structure of physics, this book is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers in multimodality, discourse analysis, educational linguistics, and science education.
Welcome to the world of infographics! This exciting form of data visualisation uses icons, pictograms and graphics to present information in a whole new way. Read about how gravity keeps the planets orbiting the Sun, find out how machines make life easier, and discover how magnets work - all visualised in beautifully designed infographics! Ideal for children of 9+, and fact and science geeks of all ages, finding out about forces has never been more exciting!
A study of the properties and uses of paper, for children between the ages of five and seven. It features colour photographs of children involved in activities to make them more accessible. The content supports schemes of work for science at Key Stage 1, and there are pages of notes for parents and teachers with information about scientific principles. The volume is part of a series in which children are encouraged to ask questions about what different materials are like, formulate ideas about how a material might behave, and test out these ideas for themselves. There is an index of key words and ideas.
