Product description

Product Description

Many people have a deep fear of Physics. The fear of Physics may not seem as scary as a fear of darkness. There are many reasons why people develop a fear of Maths and Physics.
Maths and Physics have a similar image to that of cabbages, in that you are not supposed to like them and, if you do, people think you are strange. We are taught, directly or indirectly, by the media that Physics is very hard: no-one can do Physics well; no-one likes Physics. Because of this, Physics has been put on a pedestal as 'very hard’ subject: If you can do it, you are revered as some kind of genius.
Students find Physics difficult, because they have to contend with different representations such as formulas and calculations, experiments, tables of numbers, graphs, diagrams and maps.
People think that Physics has too many things to learn: too much theory, too many formulas, too many laws and rules to be learned.
People also find that Physics is not interesting ( ... seriously?!) and that makes it difficult for students.
In this book, I wanted to prove that Physics could be interesting: you can learn laws and rules with such enjoyment that you don't notice that time passes!
