Description:

Each book in this new series follows a major technological innovation from its first appearance in human history to its present-day development. The intuitive layout of each book underscores the remarkable history that is surveyed. Running text on the upper third of each page provides a concise narrative, while a continuous timeline on the bottom two-thirds of the page records the highlights and curious facts of the development of the technology. Text and timeline together provide the kind of challenging and multi-format reading experience recommended for students in today's Australian National Curriculum and New Zealand National Curriculum.

Key features:
  • The series breaks down long and complicated developments into manageable pieces while graphically showing interdependencies and continuity.
  • Dynamic layout enables the reader to follow the narrative or browse from fact to fact.
  • Provides a visual presentation of the topic to help reinforce information from textbooks and classroom lectures.
  • Provides a "Find Out More" section of age-appropriate additional resources.
  • Such functional features as definitions in context, glossary, and index help to improve comprehension and give readers practice with common research tools of information seeking.
