Science Readers Book VII Object Lessons in Elementary Science Stage VII

Nature volume 74, page 633 (25 October 1906) | Download Citation



THESE books deal with elementary physics. The first is intended for pupils to read in class, lesson by lesson, after they have attended an explanatory and experimental demonstration from the teacher on the subject in hand. The second book contains notes of lessons designed only for the use of teachers. The notes are accompanied by helpful advice, blackboard sketches, and many other evidences of the wide experience of the author. Both volumes are attractively illustrated and well printed, though it may well be doubted if the bewildering profusion of types in the second book adds to its helpfulness. The author is a master of simplicity of expression, and the informati()n he supplies is, as a rule, trustworthy. The books deserve the careful consideration of teachers of very elementary classes.
