We shall best understand our story of the growth of science if we think of each new principle as a stepping-stone which must fit into its own particular niche. The story of the building of this wonderful structure is in itself fascinating.
by Henri Poincare - W. Scott
Henri Poincare wrote the essays in this book in 1905, the landmark period in physics after Maxwell and before special relativity. Not just the science, but the social attitudes of the day come through in this pleasant little book.
This book serves as a guide for elementary teachers to effectively teach science in their classrooms. It is also intended to provide elementary education majors with the science background they need for their qualifying exams.
