Energy and Change: Introducing a New Approach; Activities for the Classroom; Background Stories for Teachers. This set of three books uses commonsense ways of explaining why things happen. The central idea is that change is caused by differences, for example, differences in temperature or in concentration. The first book outlines the general approach; the second suggests activities to use in the classroom at key stages 3 and 4 and the third takes some scientific topics and shows how they can be looked at in a new light. Pounds 14.50 for all three. The ASE, College Lane, Hatfield, Herts AL10 9AA. Tel: 01707 267411.
