The Science of Life
Projects and Principles for Beginning Biologists
Frank G. Bottone Jr.

Summary
This activity book for budding biologists introduces kids to the five kingdoms of life through 25 engaging projects
using materials commonly found around the house, yard, or classroom. Kids will learn how to conduct experiments
using the scientific method in a carefully controlled environment. They'll make their own culture media and
determine which is more effective at inhibiting the growth of bacteria: an antiseptic, a disinfectant, or plain soap
and water. They will delight in collecting and comparing night-flying versus day-flying insects and learn how to
clone a mushroom from a piece of its own tissue. Plenty of background information is provided, along with fun
facts, a glossary, and wonderful Web sites to explore.

Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis
Projects and Principles for Beginning Geologists
Matthys Levy, Mario Salvadori

Summary
Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis don't happen every day, so how can budding scientists study how they
work? Through experiments, models, and demonstrations. This in-depth resource will teach readers how to build
a seismograph to record a simulated earthquake, compare pressure waves and shear waves-the two types of
ground shocks-using a Slinky, and replicate a tsunami's destructive effect on a "coastline" built in a bathtub.
Authors Matthys Levy and Mario Salvadori even discuss issues of modern architecture and civil engineering: how
science can be used to protect buildings and property in earthquake-prone areas.
Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis answers a wide array of questions about these phenomena. Can animals
"predict" earthquakes? How have various cultures explained the movement of the earth throughout history? What
Chicago Review Press is the Richter scale, and what does it tell us about the strength of a quake? And most important, readers will
9781556528019 learn how to earthquake-proof their homes, and how to protect themselves should they experience a tremor.

Am I an Insect?
Kristine Duehl, Katy Castronovo

Summary
With colorful and accurate illustrations designed to engage young readers, this book implements an inquiry-style
teaching method that discusses the characteristics that differentiate insects from other organisms. By asking if
each illustration shows an insect before providing information on each animal and how its characteristics do or do
not classify it as an insect, the book encourages readers to participate, from counting the number of legs a
creature has to identifying its body parts. Finishing with a summary of all insect characteristics, it asks the
Budding Biologist
reader to decide if a snail is an insect based on what they have learned throughout the book. The inquiry style

Extinction
Not the End of the World?
Steve Parker

Summary
A highly readable introduction to the causes of extinction, the different types of extinction, and how relevant it
is to the world today

More than 999 of every 1,000 species that have ever lived on the planet have become extinct. As part of
evolution, extinction of the old allows emergence of the new. It is integral to the Earth's continually changing
range and richness of life forms. This book discusses today's key issues, from biodiversity and conservation to
the threat of human extinction, and explores the major extinction events of the past, explaining how scientists

Earth at Risk
Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet
Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith

Summary
The annual conference Earth at Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet features environmental
thinkers and activists who are willing to ask the hardest questions about the seriousness of the planet's
situation, and this book presents an impassioned critique of the dominant culture from every angle. Speakers
from the conference are featured in this volume and include William Catton, who explains ecological overshoot;
Thomas Linzey, who gives a fiery call for community sovereignty; Jane Caputi, who exposes patriarchy's mythic
dismemberment of the goddess; Aric McBay, who discusses historically effective resistance strategies; and
Stephanie McMillan, who takes down capitalism. One by one, they build an unassailable case that the rich should
be deprived of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. These
speakers offer their ideas on what can be done to build a real resistance movement: one that includes all levels

Summary
The New Technology series is an exciting, up-to-date look at new technology and the effect it is having on the
world. Each title looks forward to likely future technological advances that will affect our everyday lives. Today
we are facing an energy crisis. We depend on machines, but the fuels they run on are poisoning our planet. As
they run out, the cost of those fuels will also increase. But what fuels will we be using in the future? Will
renewable sources of power really be able to replace fossil fuels? Will a solar satellite really be able to beam
power down to Earth? Will we really develop a clean form of nuclear power? With developments in energy
technology, ideas that sound like science fiction today could become reality tomorrow.

Transport Technology
Brian Williams

Summary
The New Technology series is an exciting, up-to-date look at new technology and the effect it is having on the
world. Each title looks forward to likely future technological advances that will affect our everyday lives.Today
we can already see hybrid cars and hydrogen-fueled buses on our roads. But how will we be getting around in
the future? Will cars really be able to "talk" to each other and warn each other of obstacles on the road? Will
underwater trains really get us from London to New York in two hours? Will we really be able to go into space on
an elevator? With developments in transport technology, there is no doubt that the vehicles we use to get
around will be very different in the future.

Women in Space
23 Stories of First Flights, Scientific Missions, and Gravity-Breaking Adventures
Karen Bush Gibson

Summary
When Valentina Tereshkova blasted off aboard Vostok 6 on June 16, 1963, she became the first woman to
rocket into space. It would be 19 years before another woman got a chance-cosmonaut Svetlana Savitskaya in
1982-followed by American astronaut Sally Ride a year later. By breaking the stratospheric ceiling, these women
forged a path for many female astronauts, cosmonauts, and mission specialists to follow.

Women in Space profiles 23 pioneers, including Eileen Collins, the first woman to command the space shuttle;
Peggy Whitson, who logged more than a year in orbit aboard the International Space Station; and Mae Jemison,
the first African American woman in space; as well as astronauts from Japan, Canada, Italy, South Korea,
France, and more. Readers will also learn about the Mercury 13, American women selected by NASA in the late

Summary
On February 5, 1971, Edgar Mitchell jumped off the last rungs of a ladder connecting him to NASA's Antares
spacecraft and landed with two feet on the Moon. Following the disastrous Apollo 13 mission, Mitchell was one of

Engineering the City
How Infrastructure Works
Matthys Levy, Richard Panchyk

Summary
How does a city obtain water, gas, and electricity? Where do these services come from? How are they
transported? The answer is infrastructure, or the inner, and sometimes invisible, workings of the city. Roads,
railroads, bridges, telephone wires, and power lines are visible elements of the infrastructure; sewers, plumbing
pipes, wires, tunnels, cables, and sometimes rails are usually buried underground or hidden behind walls.
Engineering the City tells the fascinating story of infrastructure as it developed through history along with the
growth of cities. Experiments, games, and construction diagrams show how these structures are built, how they
work, and how they affect the environment of the city and the land outside it.

drinking straws, tape, and string; using a pair of two-liter bottles and a length of rubber tubing to learn how a
toilet flushes; and discovering how musical instruments make sounds by fashioning a harmonica, saxophone,
drum, flute, or oboe. All devices are designed to use recycled or nearly free materials and common tools. Kids are
encouraged to modify and improve the designs, or create an entirely new device using the concepts explored.
Each project includes materials and tools lists, step-by-step instructions with photographs, a summary of the
science concept demonstrated, and follow-up questions to gauge student understanding for use in the
Chicago Review Press classroom.

Doable Renewables
16 Alternative Energy Projects for Young Scientists
Mike Rigsby

Summary
Humankind needs to find and develop alternative forms of energy. As the world's population continues to grow,
more people will need access to lighting, communication, transit, and computing. Fossil fuels are being used up
at an alarming pace, but other energy sources--solar, wind, waves, "waste" heat, and even human power--are
both renewable and environmentally friendly. The projects in this book will help any budding scientist construct
and explore working models that generate renewable, alternative energy.

In Doable Renewables, readers will learn how to build a Kelvin water drop generator out of six recycled cans and
alligator clip jumpers, a solar-powered seesaw from a large dial thermometer and a magnifying glass, and a
Chicago Review Press windmill from eight yardsticks, PVC pipe, cardboard, and converter generator. Children will investigate the

The Verbal Math Lesson I
Step-by-Step Math Without Pencil or Paper
Charan Langton, Michael Levin

Summary
By getting back to the basics, the innovative and time-proven techniques in this resource teach children that
doing math can be fun and effortless. Teaching math verbally eliminates the added challenge of having a firm
grasp on writing skills that are themselves still being learned, and does away with tedious worksheets.
Separating tasks and learning math verbally not only helps children to solve math problems efficiently, but also
teaches them to think conceptually rather than focusing all the effort on writing mechanics. This method
stimulates speed and accuracy and is critical for success in higher school grades.
The lessons in this book are developed for children in first grade, with exercises geared specifically for their age
and ability.

The Verbal Math Lesson II
Step-by-Step Math Without Pencil or Paper
Charan Langton, Michael Levin

Summary
By getting back to the basics, the innovative and time-proven techniques in this resource teach children that
doing math can be fun and effortless. Teaching math verbally eliminates the added challenge of having a firm
grasp on writing skills that are themselves still being learned, and does away with tedious worksheets.
Separating tasks and learning math verbally not only helps children to solve math problems efficiently, but also
teaches them to think conceptually rather than focusing all the effort on writing mechanics. This method
stimulates speed and accuracy and is critical for success in higher school grades.
The lessons in this book are developed for children in second grade, with exercises geared specifically for their
age and ability.

Verbal Fractions
Without Pencil or Paper
Michael Levin, Charan Langton

Summary
Free of the tediousness of writing while teaching children efficient methods of solving math problems, this guide
reintroduces the concept of verbal, or mental, math in a step-by-step fashion. Removing the drudgery and
turning math into a game, it uses a time-honored approach to help children become proficient with fractions and
percents. Fractions and decimal operations, after the four basic arithmetic operations, are the most fundamental
of math concepts, and future progress in math will depend on how well a child understands these concepts.

A Book for Those Who Build
Johnny Hamilton, Margaret Hamilton

Summary
Since everything assembled consists of either straight lines, curved lines, or a combination of both, the ability to
calculate circles and right triangles is essential for anyone who works in a building trade. This simple and
straightforward book explains the basic math used in construction, manufacturing, and design. Starting with
fractions and decimals and moving to mitered turns and arcs, these principles are presented with detailed
illustrations, practical applications, and in larger print for easy reading. The result is increased efficiency,
productivity, and confidence in one's work from initial design to final product.

Math for Life
Crucial Ideas You Didn't Learn in School
Jeffrey Bennett

Summary
How can we solve the national debt crisis? Should you or your child take on a student loan? Is it safe to talk on
a cell phone while driving? Are there viable energy alternatives to fossil fuels? What could you do with a billion
dollars? Could simple policy changes reduce political polarization? These questions may all seem very different,
but they share two things in common. First, they are all questions with important implications for either personal
success or our success as a nation. Second, they all concern topics that we can fully understand only with the
aid of clear quantitative or mathematical thinking. In other words, they are topics for which we need math for
life-a kind of math that looks quite different from most of the math that we learn in school, but that is just as
(and often more) important. In Math for Life, award-winning author Jeffrey Bennett simply and clearly explains
the key ideas of quantitative reasoning and applies them to all the above questions and many more. He also uses
Big Kid Science these questions to analyze our current education system, identifying both shortfalls...
