Let's see what science looks like when it gets out of the lab and rolls up its sleeves. As part of the Science at Work series, Gold: The Precious Metal looks at gold as more than jewelry or monetary investment. The cultural, industrial and economic history of this precious metal links back to the chemical properties of one of the most useful metals on earth. Discover why gold is both revered and loathed, and why it will continue to serve and to fascinate us for generations to come. Written by teachers with decades of experience, the Science at Work series from Lakeview Publishing brings sound knowledge and project starters to upper primary and early high school students. A set of display cards for the classroom is also available from the publisher.
