Suzanne is the lead author of Conceptual Integrated Science as well as its high school edition Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations (with Paul, John, and Jennifer). She received her B.A. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley. She earned her M.A. in education and her California teaching credential both from Stanford University. She earned another M.A. degree in Integrated Earth Sciences from California State University Sacramento. Suzanne was editor of Conceptual Physics and other books in the Conceptual series for 16 years and has authored 7 books on physics, hands-on science activities, and other topics in science and education. She has taught science and education courses to students of diverse ages and ability levels, from elementary school through college. She is always interested in developing new ways to teach and to that end, she founded the small business CooperativeGames.com.
John is author of Conceptual Chemistry as well as a coauthor of Conceptual Physical Science (with Paul and Leslie), and coauthor of Conceptual Integrated Science (with Paul, Suzanne, and Jennifer). John obtained his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University, which was followed by a two year postdoctorate in pharmacology at the Medial College of Virginia. He taught chemistry at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and then at Leeward Community College where he received tenure and was highly active in the development of distance learning programs and student-centered learning curricula. In addition to authoring textbooks, John is currently an adjunct professor at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont. Through his company, Conceptual Productions, John is the executive producer of Conceptual Academy as well as the author and illustrator of science-oriented children’s books (Styraki.com). He was a finalist in the 2013 Flame Challenge for this video lesson explaining what is the nature of time. An avid songwriter he also produces music, which can be found through JohnAndrew.net.
Jennifer is the biology coauthor of Conceptual Integrated Science as well as its high school edition Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations. She earned a Ph.D. in integrative biology from the University of Texas, Austin, for her work on frog skeleton evolution. She obtained her B.A. in physics and astronomy from Harvard University, Summa Cum Laude. Following her graduate work, Jennifer was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Francisco, where she studied the genetics of breast cancer. Jennifer has taught courses in physics, cell biology, human embryology, vertebrate anatomy, and ecology and evolution. She is the author of various scientific papers as well as the book Endangered Species: Must They Disappear? (Thomson/Gale, © 2002, 2004). Jennifer continues to work on a wide variety of introductory biology materials, including various ancillaries and online tutorials.
