Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations from Conceptual Academy - Grades 7 - 9
Full Version (25– 36 weeks)
Recommended for Grades 7-9
Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations
This self-study course collates all 39 chapters of the Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations textbook into 5 units and a total of 39 lessons (one lesson per chapter). Recommended for grade levels 7 – 9. With a greater number of shorter lessons, this “Explorations” course is a less rigorous version of the CIS Full Version course. There is still ample material for two semesters of study. Along with a library of video tutorials and reading assignments, included are worksheets, interactive simulations, study advice from the authors, automated quizzes and homework with grade book, complete labs using household materials, and unit exams. This course provides a strong and enjoyable introduction to integrated science for the junior high school student. It also serves well as a precursor to our higher level Conceptual Physics or Conceptual Chemistry courses, which provide greater depth on a broader range of topics.
Integrated Science (Explorations)
Our junior high school physical science “explorations” title is geared for grades 7 – 9 actually covering a bit more breadth than our more sophisticated high school/college physical science titles. The depth of coverage, however, is lighter and the questions at the back of each chapter and the unit exams are not as challenging, though they still push the envelope for this younger age group. Our “explorations” titles make for a good introduction to the basic concepts while also nurturing an enthusiasm for learning more about science.
