Thank you! I hadn't found those. There are also some TOPS units on a NASA site for free. Naturally I already own them but thought I would let people know. I think one is Far Out Math.

So awesome!! This is perfect to show ds why he needs to keep at the math. He just doesn't always get the real world physics application and is not so motivated by math alone. ;)

The NASA AMES guys told my boys that they need to be solid in their math :)

We're now working on Book 1 and it's perfect - a combination of fascinating science and practical math.

We have combined Chem and math this year, but these are great for Earth/life science next year. Thanks
