About Quanta Books

Newton’s Laws, the Doppler effect, intermolecular forces and collision theory – these theoretical concepts confuse many learners. But, Physical Sciences can be interesting and, dare we say it, fun! The Quanta Book series, for Grade 10, 11 and 12 learners, provides bite-sized explanations that are easy to understand and the DVDs contain animations and demonstrations that help learners visualise difficult concepts. Several prominent schools prescribe the Quanta Book series as it has proven to be an excellent tool in preparing learners for tests and examinations. The Quanta Book series is available in both English and Afrikaans.

The Quanta Book Series is Unique!

Numerous questions on each topic

Physical Sciences is, unlike most other subjects, a skill. Any skill, like driving a car or playing the piano, can only be obtained by practising – the more you practise, the better you get – because practice makes perfect! For this reason, the Quanta Books contain a great number of questions, mainly from National Examination Papers from 1990 to 2012 as well as examples from the Department of Education. The more difficult topics contain even more questions, e.g. the “quantum” on the equilibrium constant alone, contains more than a 100 questions!

Targets the right and the left brain

Many right-brained learners either get bored in Science class or battle to understand the abstract concepts. The DVDs, which accompany the Grade 11 and 12 Quanta Books, contain cartoons, animations and demonstrations that enable right-brained learners to visualise difficult concepts. The Quanta, therefore, makes use of both the right and the left brain to accommodate different learning styles.

Divided into small, digestible, bite-sized “quanta” with crisp explanations

The Quanta is divided into small, digestible, bite-sized “quanta” – each “quantum” contains a crisp and to-the-point summary of a specific topic, enriched with hints and tips, and is followed by an exercise containing a number of relevant questions.

Step-by-step answers

The Quanta provides step-by-step answers to all the questions in the examination paper in the back of the book. The answers to the multiple choice questions are also fully explained.

We have many clips from the DVDs as well as extracts from the books up on our site.
