Comic Book Science
Tired of stale old Physics textbooks? I know your students probably are. Here’s an alternative: “Manga Guide to Physics,” a 248-page graphic novel about two students at a Japanese high school and how they teach each other about everything from the law of action and reaction and force and motion to momentum and energy. Happily, there are sections that explain the relevant formulas as well as a chapter at the end devoted to the units. A great augmentation of the typical textbook, manga physics costs $200 for the paperbound book or $16 as a .pdf eBook. There are also manga books about calculus, statistics and electricity.
