An interactive educational tool for presenting a new concept in science.

Jupyter Book Navigation

In addition to clicking on the hyperlinks in the menus, you can page through this book using the arrow keys on your keyboard and forward and back web page gestures on a trackpad.

This book can be read like a traditional static textbook, but it also contains interactive widgets that are launched on a cloud-based computer, so you can access these features on many different platforms through a web interface. The purpose of these interactive features are to help the reader learn and explore the concepts being presented.

The CoLab option for the interactives launches more quickly than Binder.
