The Science of Space

The Science of Space series provides a stimulating range of short-answer, practical and research tasks about Space that will complement and extend core science knowledge.

Each book will be of use to those teaching junior science, senior science, physics and earth science. Many topics in astronomy are covered and it is suitable for the wide range of ages and ability levels found in Australian high schools. The book aims to dispel the notion that astronomy is 'just looking at stars and planets', showing that it covers a wide range of scientific disciplines and can be a fascinating subject. A wide range of activities is included.

In addition to comprehension exercises, there are many calculations, graphical and drawing exercises, practical activities, test items and research questions to extend the more able pupils. Sections have been included that help students consolidate their knowledge.
