Application Text Types Description
The text types idea is so that the user
can easily navigate the teaching text of the app. Any fragment
of a teaching text should be presented in such a way that it is
immediately clear to what type it belongs:
to the header, physical law, definition, etc.
The following types of text are represented in this app:
The most important app text
Terms and their definitions
Physical laws, concepts and important statements
Tables with the most important information
Pictures explaining or illustrating physical concepts
App teaching texts
There are three types of
- entire textbook page headers;
- page section headers;
- internal section headers.
Below are images of all three header types:
Fig. 1. Page header example
Fig. 2. Page section header example
Fig. 3. Page section header (crimson) and internal section header (black)
The most important app text
is a small bold indigo font. This font is used to attract user attention to
the main thoughts in app sections and pages,
definition texts, as well as the most important
concepts, notions and terms. Usage examples:
Fig. 4. This is one of the most important section concepts
Fig. 5. In all definitions, the text following the
term is typed as the most important
Fig. 6. The "physical quantity" term is highlighted as the most important
is an exact designation of a certain concept.
It is printed in small bold green font (the term font), whereas
its definition is printed in small bold indigo
font (the most important text font):
Fig. 7. The "mechanical motion" term definition
Fig. 8. Here, a physical formula is considered as a term,
and the text gives the name of this formula
A physical law,
thesis, or important
statement is a text placed
in a pink frame. For example:
Fig. 9. Physical law presentation
Fig. 10. Important kinematic thesis presentation
with the most important information
are the ones with the information presentation
in the most structured and concise form.
Fig. 11.This is the table with two internal headers and general formulas
Fig. 12. This ia the table with the most important kinetic relationships
that explain or illustrate
kinetic concepts, notions and so on. Examples:
Fig. 13. Material point illustration (airplane, satellite)
Fig. 14. Radius vector illustration
The application teaching text.
This is the text of the application, which
provides a source of educational information
that is compulsory for students to study and
master. The example:
Fig. 15. App text specimen
When above enlisted types are used to
represent the app text,
the text structure becomes clear to the user.
Therefore, it is easy to understand which part of the text
is necessary to study carefully and learn by heart.
Definitions, laws, formulas, tables, notions and so on
are the subject to memorize, and
special attention should be paid to their study and understanding.
Finding terms, the most important statements and
notions becomes an easy task.
The text types facilitate the study
and use of the app text.
