A new set of books to help students understand the science of physics
Posted On August 9, 2021
Updated May 02, 2019 12:17:13In the last decade, Canada has become a leader in physical education research, teaching, and curricula for children and adolescents.
While this has not come without challenges, such as funding and funding barriers, the success of Canadian Physical Education Standards, or CAPES, has been phenomenal.
With a national goal of reaching 30 per cent of Canada’s schoolchildren by 2020, the results of these tests, known as CAPES scores, have been a major factor in the country’s national growth.
This year, CAPES is back in the news with a series of new books and videos that aim to introduce students to science in a fun, engaging way, according to a spokesperson for the Canada Physical Education Association.
The new titles are aimed at all levels of students: teachers, students, parents, and educators.
One of the first books is the science-based PE and science-focused physics book, The Science of Physics: A Physical Education Companion for Teachers.
This book is available in six languages, and includes interactive videos to help teachers and parents get started with the material.
This book also provides the core science and physics content that is used in the national curriculum, including a chapter on the physics of water.
“A great book for teachers, parents and the public,” said the spokesperson for The Canada Physical Educators Association, who asked that their name not be published.
“It will be available to parents and teachers throughout the year.”
The book has been written by the Association’s Canadian director of science, education and research, Susan Kappel, and features an introduction by Prof. David E. Durnin.
“In these videos, students can see the basics of physics in action,” the spokesperson said.
“The book is easy to learn for all levels and offers plenty of science for everyone.”
A second book, Physics for Children, is designed to teach kids how to use math, science, and math skills to solve real world problems.
The book is set to be released in spring 2019.
The third book, A Physics for Teachers, is a practical introduction to physics for teachers.
It’s set to hit shelves this fall and is aimed at teaching math and science to the Canadian school system.
It also has an interactive video to help parents and students get started.
The fourth book, Science for Teachers: An Introduction to Physics, provides a great resource for teachers and students to get to grips with the basics, including the basics on electricity, magnetism, and magnetism-based devices.
This is a great book, said the Canada Physician Association spokesperson.
“This is for teachers because it’s a good introduction to science, but it’s also a great textbook for kids, who have access to it and have fun learning it.”
The fifth book, Learning to Physics: From First Principles to Physics Science in Canada, includes video lessons and a chapter with a number of Canadian scientists, as well as a chapter called “The Evolution of Physics in Canada,” which provides a look at how the country has changed over time.
The sixth book, Getting Started with Physics, is the first of several books aimed at helping teachers and educators with practical examples for children.
It comes with an introduction from Prof. Paul C. Osmond, the president of the University of Waterloo.
“This is about what we’ve learned about physics over the last 50 years and how it relates to our society,” Osmonds said.
“It’s a fun book, and it’s going to be available at schools in early spring.”
The new books are part of a broader push by the association to promote Canadian physical education and the country is looking to improve on its performance in 2016, according the spokesperson.
“We have to do better,” she said.
