How many times you teach your students but they still do not understand?
Being a teacher/lecturer of any of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, or any other subjects, the above phenomenon often happens.
One of the main reason is communication. I hear I forget, I see I Know, I do I Understand, this explain what is happening.
Based on research of De Porter, a man could understand the subject as much as 70% of what is done, 50% of what is seen and heard (audio visual), 30% what is seen (visual), and only 20% form what is heard (audio) and only 10% from what is read. So driving the learning into more interactive and involving as much human sense as possible, we can have more effective learning. This can be achieved by animation. More over, we can have learning process more fun using animation

This book contains dozens of tutorials that are prepared step by step and fully illustrated with pictures. Step by step simple and easy to follow. There are 4 subjects/lectures that became a case study tutorial in this book, namely Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Four subjects are to become a bugbear for most students. In each subject there were 3 cases of simple cases to a slightly more complicated. This means that there are total 12 case studies. At the end of the book provided a bonus tutorial in making an interactive quiz using Flash.
In each tutorial reference is provided, which is quoted material from the encyclopedia or text book lessons. In addition, equipped with the homework that will test the understanding and enrich your experience in making educational animation.
