Gil, mine too! I always hated learning about it in college and then I hated teaching it as a teacher! There's so much to do and measure when you are teaching force, velocity, etc. So here I was getting ready to teach electricity again and this is also where my class textbook really does a bad job in, and iBooks Author came out... I decided right there to write my own book. Thanks so much for your support. The MacBreak support has been fantastic!
Thanks AutoCorner. I'm hoping my book is better illustrated, explains the physics better, and is more fun than what the book companies can make. Thanks for your support.
It is funny, my business partner and I were just talking about how great it would be for educators to sit down and write their own textbooks. Then this week on MacBreak Weekly I heard the guys talking about your project. I have pledged $100 to get your project going. I hope it works out and you are able to produce a better set of textbooks than what our students are currently forced to use.
Count me as a MacBreak supporter......looking forward to a nice refresher in the physics of electricity....my nemesis
Count me as a MacBreak referral too! Can't wait to see the finished product!
I also heard about the project on MacBreak Weekly. The project looks wonderful. I'm a graduate student in higher education (philosophy) and it is inspiring to see other teachers who care this much. Best of luck!
Thank you Natasha. I hope my book helps with those gaps. :)
Learned about your book project from MacBreak Weekly. My enthusiasm for math and physics is endless, it even survived dry teaching technic of Soviet teachers (with the exemption of a few brilliant ones!). However, there are hugs gaps in my knowledge and I am really looking forward to learning more and introducing my kids to your book. Please keep us posted and good luck.
So happy for you Tony - Kickstarter is an appropriate name to be associated with . Loved the sincere high accolades you received from Alex. John's smiling down at ya with pride.
