Integrated Science (Explorations)
An “integrated science” course serves the purpose of a “general science” course covering both the physical and life sciences. These courses are “integrated” in that the fields of science are not compartmentalized. Biology, for example, is discussed in the physics chapters and elsewhere as is appropriate. Both of our integrated science courses (high school and jr. high) are still under construction. However, they already have much to offer, such as reading and video assignments, automated quizzes, and the grade book. Furthermore, the textbooks are now published and available. Thus we are offering our integrated science self-study courses as “early release” at a steeply discounted price.

Review a .pdf of the front matter of this textbook, including its table of contents.
This self-study course collates all 39 chapters of the Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations textbook into 5 units and a total of 39 classes (one chapter per class). Recommended for grade levels 7 – 9. This is ample material for two semesters of study. Included are 253 video lessons, 39 chapter quizzes, and 221 video quizzes. Performance is tracked through a student grade book. The pricing of this “early release” version reflects that the FYI pages are still under construction, which means author comments, worksheets, and exams have yet to be included. Earth Science and biology video lessons are also still under construction. The full release should be available September 2017, but new content will be added to this early release as it becomes available. Numerous hands-on activities are available right within the textbook. Lab manual with many additional activities is also available: “Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations, Lab Manual“, by Dean Baird.
5 Units; 39 Classes

“Most of the scientific questions you’re curious about, or need to know, involve not just one discipline, but several of them in an overlapping way. What is the nature of the universe? That’s astronomy + physics. How are our bodies altered by the foods we eat? That’s chemistry + biology. What of our climate? That’s all of the above: physics, chemistry, biology, and Earth science!”
