Forces and Motion: Investigating a Car Crash
Learning physics must include information of real world scenarios, or the task is a dull one.
Investigating a Car Crash looks at the science of forces and motion to explain speed, acceleration, friction, and momentum. It asks your teen to step into the role of investigator and use his knowledge of science and technology to sift through evidence to determine the cause of the crash.
With multiple scenarios and fascinating case studies, Investigating a Car Crash will not only give your teen explanations of the scientific principles and procedures employed to look into an accident, but maybe even the wisdom to prevent one.

Science, investigation, and driving. All three topics of interest for my 14 year old at the time. Since the three appear in one book, it looked like a winner to me. Well, that and I saw it as an opportunity for him to see the importance of driving safely. We no longer homeschool but I think I'm going to pull it out and have him read it again. This shouldn't be a problem because he thought the book was interesting,
