Simple Mechanisms by Ade Deane-Pratt


Simple Mechanisms by Ade Deane-Pratt

Combining Science and Design and Technology, this series examines simple machines and where we can find them in everyday objects. A scientific explanation with the help of annotated diagrams and illustrations is followed by examples of objects that make use of the various simple machines such as pulleys, gears and wedges.


Easy to understand and supported by some excellent photographs and diagrams which are useful in understanding the complexity of a range of everyday machines. School Librarian
