How to apply science to your home life to do things better, faster, and cheaper
For most of us, physics and chemistry are but distant memories, part of the hazy days of high school, no more distinct than gym class humiliations or the particulars of calculus—and certainly no more useful in our daily lives. But is that really true? Or could the fundamentals of science and even math actually turn out to be helpful? Not in the way your math teacher might have imagined, but in practical, useful ways that improve your life?
In Better Living through Science by Mark Frary, learn how science can help you do such things as:
-get a piece of furniture around a tight corner
-unscrew the top from a difficult jar
-remove a red wine stain from a carpet without a fancy cleaning solution
-and much more!
With charming, full color photographs and illustrations, this book demonstrates how all of the things we learned (or didnt learn) in math and science class will go a long way toward improving life in and around the house.
From getting a piece of furniture around a tight corner to unscrewing the top from a difficult jar, this book demonstrates how all of the things we learned (or didn't learn) in math and science class can be applied in everyday, household situations.
