  1. Sound: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It

    Sound takes an intentionally light touch to help out all those adults seeking necessary scientific background to teach physics with confidence. The book introduces sound waves and uses that model to explain sound-related occurrences. Starting with the basics of what causes sound and how it travels, you'll learn how musical instruments work, how sound waves add and subtract, how the human ear works and even why you can sound like a Munchkin when you inhale helium.

  2. Energy: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It

    If you fear the study of energy is beyond you, this book will do more than introduce you to the topic. It will help you actually understand it. At the book's heart are easy-to-grasp explanations of energy basics - work, kinetic energy, potential energy, and the transformation of energy - and energy as it relates to simple machines, heat energy, temperature, and heat transfer. Irreverent author Bill Robertson suggests activities that bring the basic concepts of energy to life with common household objects. Each chapter ends with a summary and an applications section that uses practical examples such as roller coasters and home heating systems to explain energy transformations and convection cells.

  3. Maths: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Maths So You Can Teach It

    Like the other six titles in this award-winning series, Maths is meant for homework-helping parents, maths-averse teachers and home-schoolers. It’s written for everyone who lacks the background to teach with confidence and is sick of relying on avoidance strategies. As Robertson sees it, too many people view mathematics as a set of rules to follow, procedures to memorise, and theorems to apply. This book takes a unique approach by focusing on the reasoning behind the rules, from maths basics all the way up to a brief introduction to calculus.

  4. Light: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It

    If you have trouble teaching concepts about light, get help from a book that's both scientifically accurate and entertaining - with Light. By combining clear explanations, clever drawings, and activities that use easy-to-find materials, this book covers what science teachers and parents need to know to teach about light with confidence. It uses ray, wave, and particle models of light to explain the basics of reflection and refraction, optical instruments, polarization of light, and interference and diffraction. There's also an entire chapter on how the eye works. Each chapter ends with a Summary and Applications section that reinforces concepts with everyday examples.

  5. Air, Water, and Weather: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It

    Thunderstruck by storm fronts? Perplexed about air pressure? Hazy on how weather works? If you've always been shaky on the science behind such phenomena, Air, Water, and Weather is designed to help you develop a deep understanding of the basics so you can teach without fear. You'll learn about pressure, the Coriolis force, the Bernoulli Effect, density, and explanations of why hot air doesn't rise all by itself and why heating air doesn't necessarily cause it to expand. These concepts form a foundation for explanations of weather patterns, including the jet stream, storm fronts, and the formation of tornadoes and hurricanes.

  6. Chemistry Basics: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach it

    Best-selling author Bill Robertson takes a fresh approach to chemistry fundamentals by helping you understand them from the ground up. So instead of hounding you to memorise the characteristics of atoms and the periodic table, this book helps you to see those characteristics as a natural consequence of our understanding of atomic structure. Too many teachers, parents and home-schoolers are face with helping other people understand science that they don't really understand themselves. With accurate explanations spiced up with Robertson';s irresistible irreverence Chemistry Basics will help you grasp chemistry at a level deep enough to teach it to others with confidence and comfort.

  7. More Chemistry Basics: Stop Faking It! Finally Understanding Science So You Can Teach It
    Following on from Chemistry Basics, More Chemistry Basics introduces additional chemistry concepts, such as special reactions and half-lives, and expands on many previously discussed ideas, including electron energy levels and why we can't know exactly what electrons are doing and where they are. Robertson explains science basics using easy-to-follow activities that help teachers learn the fundamentals and more. Like other books in the Stop Faking It! series, More Chemistry Basics will prove invaluable for teachers, parents, and home-school providers who want to feel greater confidence in the content they teach.
