Remix: Robotic World is an expository nonfiction text with extensive photographic support. Three chapters explore robot helpers, workplace robots and robots of the future. Many specific events are used to illustrate ideas about robots, such as Dr. Jacques Marescaux being one of the first surgeons to use remote controls to remove a bladder and REX, which is the name of a pair of robotic legs. Questions such as “Is it fair to test human intelligence against a programmed computer?” spark deeper thinking. A concluding page provides ways for students to reflect on and extend their engagement with the topic.
Clear headings, short chunks of text, easy-to-see captions, and FYI boxes are used on every two-page spread. Red type is used to make key words stand out. A glossary and index are provided.
Sentences are short and simple in structure. Everyday language is used to explain important ideas.
