    An introductory history of chemistry, this extremely readable text covers discoveries and developments from ancient to present times. Major emphasis is placed on the contributions of individual scientists (such as Cavendish, Mendeleev, Boyle, and Rutherford) and how they made their discoveries. The focus is not on balancing chemical equations or learning the number of electrons in specific elements. 16 chapters cover: ancient metals (iron, lead, tin), money metals (gold, silver, copper), the search for gold, gases in the air, the use of currents to separate elements, the first periodic table, using a spectroscope to identify elements, cathode ray tubes and alpha particle experiments, compounds by electric attraction, water and its unique properties, carbon and its compounds, organic chemistry, nitrogen and its compounds, silicon and its compounds, modern metals, and chemistry in today's world.

    This fascinating book explores many different facets of mathematics, and is an intriguing read for anyone - whether or not they enjoy the actual subject! It begins with a chapter which discusses the calendar - how it came about, problems and changes that were corrected and re-corrected, how the months were named and the days were divided amongst them, different people who influenced the calendar, and finally the system that we have today. Did you know that our calendar will have to be adjusted again, assuming we reach the year 5329? By then, our current calendar will be off an entire day. The text is so interesting it's hard not to just keep reading. Throughout the text, questions, puzzles, and problems are offered as a challenge for students. Some of the topics covered include measuring, practical mathematics, number names and patterns, endless numbers, math for scientists, and computing machines. Lots of history is given with each topic, so students learn not only about the concepts but how they were formed and developed over time to give us the functions we commonly use today. An excellent supplement to any math curriculum, reading a chapter from this book would provide an excellent break from the daily math lessons. 157 pgs. - Melissa

    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.

    You probably know about the famous men of astronomy from your science and history books, but do you know the truth about them and all of the others who paved the way for modern-day astronomy? This book covers from 1500 to 1700 and the strides that were made, beginning to end, and the people who made them – not just the ones you have heard of. People of that period were on a quest to discover and prove facts about astronomy and the universe: math, logic and technology being key to accurate discoveries. This 440-page, softcover book will take you chronologically through the astronomical renaissance and show (with some pictures and illustrations) how thinking changed from one theory to another as astronomers were proven to be right or wrong. You will read how famous men fit into the sequence with many others who were on the same path. ~ Donna

    Highlighting the masterpieces of 20 great painters from the 15th to 20th century, you will dig deeper into the works of both householdname artists as well as more unfamiliar artists – the mix includes van Eyck, Botticelli, Millais,
    Morisot, Chardin, Uccello, and Gaugin, among others. Study a masterpiece from each artist, examining how its unique elements were created. Hone in on certain aspects and compare this work to others by the same artist. The text takes a unique approach in describing the art: it is written as though we are standing there as the artist works. The author’s style is explained in a conversational, story-like form. While I found this style appealing and easily digestible, be aware that the author does take a certain level of liberty, such as fictionalizing some of
    the artist’s thoughts and feelings. This book also analyzes the original intended audience, how the painters bucked established artistic trends, and how audiences have responded through the years. This is a beautiful book with 134 illustrations (126 in color), including a full reproduction of each highlighted masterpiece. With each painting, the “Why Don’t You?” inset suggests an activity, such as journaling, a visit to an art museum, or drawing horizon and perspective. Note: a handful of paintings and sculptures with nude subjects are selected. For each artist, you will also find a portrait and web links to view
    additional artwork; a chronology is in the back. Includes a glossary and a list of art museums to visit. 10” x 11 ¾”, 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
