Da Vinci Unit Study

Selected Option:
Softcover B&W
PDF + Softcover B&W

This unit study book is a compilation of the nine individual mini units I wrote as I taught a hands-on science class based on Leonardo da Vinci.

Many of the students had studied da Vinci before we did these classes, but several students were not really familiar with him or his work.  

This book can be used alone as introduction to da Vinci, or in conjunction with one or both of the other two books I've written on the topic: Da Vinci: His Life and His Legacy and Da Vinci Student Book

There is no right or wrong way to use this study, but one method is to introduce one da Vinci related topic each class, and do these or other similar activities.  

Note: You do NOT need to purchase the individual Da Vinci Mini Units if you are purchasing this book -- they are all contained within this book, along with some additional material.

(Also, there is a bit of overlap with the other two books I've written -- such as the maps and Vitruvian Man -- but not very much.)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
