Motion and Mass: First Steps into Physics
by Roy McWeeny
Publisher: Learning Development Institute 2011
Number of pages: 107
From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.

The matter presented is intended to form the introduction to a work on Theoretical Mechanics. The book is intended as a drill book, and the unusual elaboration of the topics, should enable the student to overcome most of his difficulties himself.
by Frank Berry Sanborn - J. Wiley & sons
The book presents many practical problems together with brief definitions and solutions of typical problems which should help the student to follow this advice: ''Learn for yourself, think for yourself, make yourself master of principles''.
by Alexander Ziwet - The Macmillan Company
The book may serve to stimulate the study of theoretical mechanics in engineering schools. It is intended to furnish a sufficient basis, on the one hand for the more advanced study of the science, on the other for the study of its applications.
