About

This interactive Gravity Advanced Level Physics chapter textbook works on both Android and iOS, offering a gorgeous, full-screen experience full of 15+ interactive simulations even 3D are available at the 3D geostationary orbits simulation, animated pictures and static photos, and links to videos on Youtube. No longer limited to static pictures to illustrate the text, now students can play and conduct mathematical modelling pedagogy developed by the Author using the Open Source Physics/Easy JavaScript Simulations. They can flip through a book by simply sliding a finger along the bottom of the screen. Highlighting text, taking notes, searching for content, and finding definitions in the glossary are just as easy. And with all their books on a single device, students will have no problem carrying them wherever they go.

The content are originally based on lectures notes from Yishun Junior College, Singapore.

Survey Data

Survey results on Gravitation ebook from JC1 seniors workshop on 15 Oct 2015
Sample size: 15  
S/no Questions Answers
1 How useful is this ebook, on a scale from 1 - 10? 7.27
2 Would you use this ebook, on a scale from 1 - 10? 6.4
Why? Useful for easy visualisation
Learning become more interesting [2]
Better than boring lessons as this is more interactive [2]
Very interesting and good for concept but once is enough for understanding
Easier to visualise  as compared to paper but may not be able to understand fully the use of each function
Prefer lecture notes but this may come in handy when I need clarification
Might be difficult to use but it is helpful for students to understand better
Useful but boring
Might not have additional time to use it
Not a system I am used to
A little time-consuming
I may not know how to use certain SIM and hence not using it
The SIM is repetitive and the content is heavy
3 Should we replace lecture notes with this ebook? Yes [3]; No [12]
Why? Definitely gives a clearer explanation
It is more interactive
Environmentally friendly and useful
Not everyone has a iPAD or tablet. I prefer paper. [4]
It should be supplementary/additional learning material, not to replace notes [5]
Lectures notes are more informative
4 Which is your favourite SIM? 3D Geostationary satellite model [14]
Binary stars model
