**Motion and Mass: First Steps into Physics**

by **Roy McWeeny** - **Learning Development Institute** , **2011**

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.
