    Combining mastery-learning and a unique textbook philosophy, this physical science course helps students break the Cram-Pass-Forget cycle so that they truly learn and retain course material.This physical science text is designed for grades 6-8. Physical Science is beautifulky designed and organized around the principles guiding all Centripetal Press texts summarized in the words Mastery, Integration, Wonder.Good science instruction should draw students upward into the adult world of scientific inquiry. We start with a proven mastery-learning paradigm: through a carefully crafted program, students continually learn and build on their learning, reencountering key concepts and practicing scientific skills so that they become settled in the student's mind.Mastery learning requires ongoing review even as new material is presented. It also takes culling the material down to a manageable amount that an average student can actually master in the course of a year. This means that Novare texts are serendipitously smaller than the usual 8-10 pound tomes. Better, more enduring learning takes place when the student goes deeper with a moderate amount of material rather than trying to cover too many topics too rapidly or shallowly.Each chapter begins with a list of quantifiable learning objectives and important vocabulary. Chapters also include periodic Learning Checks which provide a moment to stop and review. There are 12 "Experimental Investigations" included with the book, not in a separate manual, with instructions and materials listed. The teacher's version of the experiment in on the Resource CD. Some experiments are demonstrated in Youtube videos.integration is the inclusion of material across subjects relevant to the topic in the text: the history behind the science, grade-level mathematics, written and verbal English language skills and measurement skills. Novare Physical Science in particular even includes some discussion of epistemology (what kind of knowledge does science give us and how is that different from biblical revelation). References from the humanities are used where appropriate to add greater dimension, to humanize and decompartmentalize science, references to art, music, architecture, technology, and literature.Finally, this text specifically devotes space to the presence of order in the universe, as well as the nature of truth, theories, facts, hypotheses, and the nature of scientific knowledge.Physical Science is beautiful inside and out. With a mature, developed sense of aesthetics, this book is tidy and attractive. Students love the personal style of the narrative in which the author concisely and accurately explains the concepts with evident wonder and excitement at the marvels of the world.

    Full solutions to all calculation problems in Accelerated Chemistry.This is a useful supplement to students and teachers in schools or homeschooling environments. While the answers to problems are in the text, this book is for anyone who would like help with the working out the exercises in Accelerated Chemistry. In this book, the author "shows his work" and how each problem or calculation is solved.Challenges abound in education today, compelling thoughtful educators to search for new teaching methods and solutions for the classroom. Private schools, charter schools, and homeschools have freedom to implement the changes that will actually improve education and increase student achievement. So where do we start in science? What is needed is nothing short of a paradigm shift in the way we teach and in the ways we expect students to learn.Centripetal Press founder and author John D. Mays has identified three areas of focus that have proven to be true game changers for student academic achievement: Mastery, Integration, and Wonder. These three core principles are at the heart of all Centripetal Press textbooks.The first step toward improving academic performance is to change how we define success in our classes. The method most students use is what we call The Cram¿Pass¿Forget Cycle. In this futile cycle, which is ubiquitous in schools and colleges across the nation, students cram for their tests, pass them, and then soon forget most of what they learned. Success in such an environment revolves around jumping through hoops, not genuine learning. Students are bored by this regimen, and teachers are demoralized by the results.By contrast, we promote teaching methods and curriculum materials designed to promote a Learn¿Master-Retain Cycle. This first involves culling down the bloated curriculum so popular today. A reduced-scope curriculum enables students to learn a reasonable amount of material deeply, instead of giving shallow attention to scores of topics that they will neither comprehend nor remember. Students who learn this way typically outperform their peers as they move to higher level classes.Second, leading students to mastery and retention requires teaching methods designed to produce these results. The standard approach used today involves teaching a chapter and giving a test on the chapter. By contrast, pedagogy designed for mastery and retention involves continuous review, ongoing accountability for retention of previously studied material, and embedding of basic skills into new material. Of course, an effective method includes innovative strategies to enable students to master course content.

    A Solutions Manual to accompany Principles of Chemistry.Principles of Chemistry uses a mastery-learning paradigm designed to bring students to a excellent grasp of concepts and skills. The author's conversational style is a favorite with students, and combined with a special skill for lucidity and detail, this text is what has been sorely missing from education. Students also appreciate the smaller profile and lighter weight of our books-something everyone notices immediately. This is possible because of the text covers an amount that can reasonably be covered in one year, rather than being stuffed with unnecessary chapters.The history of modern chemistry, mathematics and technical communication is emphasized throughout to effect the integration of chemistry with other subjects. Integration preserves a course from feeling compartmentalized and not relevant to other subjects. That's certainly not how the real world is. Real chemists use math and writing skills, and their field is greatly enhanced by their knowledge of the lineage of great scientists upon whose shoulders they stand.All Centripetal Press texts are rigorously reviewed and vetted by professional scientists.The mission of Centripetal Press is to transform the way science and math are taught by producing materials and advocating teaching methods based on the core principles of Mastery and Integration, and by fostering the natural Wonder of scientific study.
