Life of Fred: Pre-Algebra 0 with Physics


Product Description

Elementary Physics is the first book in the Life of Fred Pre-Algebra "Getting Ready for High School Math" Series, which is designed for students who have completed the elementary, intermediate, and arithmetic series books. Most students who use this series are in middle school. While most schools teach physics in twelfth grade, this age-appropriate book provides a template to learning about physics before algebra is learned.

Forty chapters are included, each of which ends with a "Your Turn to Play" segment with a small number of thought-provoking questions. Answers are provided on the next page for students to go over themselves after attempting to solve the problems. "The Bridge" review questions are given after every five chapters, and provide transitions between concepts as well as a means of assessment. For parents who choose to use these sections as evaluation tools, it is recommended that students score at least 90% before moving on. If students don't succeed, they can try again with a total of five different sets of problems. The book concludes with "The Final Bridge" (with six tries provided). Answers to the Bridge questions are provided in the back of the book.
