Description

Architecture has undergone sweeping development since the beginning of time. This fascinating series introduces readers from middle school and up to the science, history, art, and architecture of buildings and other structures around the world. Its goal is to give students insight into the science behind the structures that are part of our everyday lives.Each book in the "Frameworks" series is heavily illustrated in full color and includes detailed line art to illustrate complex scientific and mathematical concepts and principles. Engaging text and real-world case studies demonstrate the application of such concepts as mass, force, speed, and energy. Sidebar boxes highlight biographies, important dates, discoveries, key places and structures, as well as important concepts. Feature spreads illustrate key events, structures, and case studies. Written by authoritative authors, each book includes an extensive glossary and a Find Out More section of print and Internet resources.In addition to serving the middle school science curriculum, this series will also appeal to high school students who want extra focus on architecture, as well as younger readers who want to advance in their science studies. Because they present real-world examples, the books are also ideal for adult education science courses.
