Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations

About This Curriculum
A treatment of Integrated Science suitable for middle school and lower high school students. This textbook presents all the sciences—from physics to chemistry to biology, Earth science, and astronomy plus areas where these disciplines overlap. It’s the wide story of science told in terms of its Unifying Concepts—major ideas from gravity to atoms and ecosystems—that cut across the science disciplines. This is one of our most richly illustrated textbooks full of humorous cartoons and savvy tips on science learning. Like its upper level companion, Conceptual Integrate Science—Explorations puts concepts ahead of computation, is written in a friendly voice, and emphasizes the big ideas over technical details.
