Friction by Louise Spilsbury, Richard Spilsbury


Friction by Louise Spilsbury, Richard Spilsbury

Friction explores how the force between two surfaces that touch helps us to do many of the things we do every day, such as eating, writing and walking. It shows how the amount of friction present is affected by different factors and how it can either be useful or a problem. It investigates how we can increase or decrease friction, for example in the world of sport, where reducing air or water resistance can mean the difference between winning and losing. Step-Up Science has been created specifically for pupils at KS2. The books are designed to support and extend the learning objectives of specific units of the Science Scheme of Work.
