The physics of motion is best taught by actually showing things moving! Diagrams on a white board and pictures in a text book just don't cut it. The Shedding Light on Motion series brilliantly covers all the essentials of the topic of motion, including speed, acceleration, relative motion, the use of graphs, and Newton's three laws of motion.

This series is ideal for all teachers who want to teach the topic of motion, whether they're experienced physics teachers or graduate non-physics teachers who have suddenly found themselves in the deep end! Your rescue is at hand!!
