Full Version (25– 36 weeks)
Recommended for Grades 7-9
Conceptual Physical Science Explorations
This comprehensive self-study course collates all 34 chapters of the Conceptual Physical Science Explorations textbook into 5 units and a total of 34 lessons (one lesson per chapter). Recommended for grade levels 7 – 9. This is ample material for two semesters of study. Along with a library of video tutorials and reading assignments, included are worksheets, simulations, study advice from the authors, automated quizzes with grade book, complete labs using household materials, and unit exams. This course provides a strong and enjoyable introduction to physical science for the young and energetic adolescent. It also serves well as a precursor to our high school level Conceptual Physics or Conceptual Chemistry courses.
Physical 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.
