Ds just threw me a curve ball and decided that next year instead of the Earth and Life Science that I have mostly all figured out, he wants to do physics. Since the holidays are going to fly buy, and the spring normally has me doing a thousand things at once, I thought I best ask now. I was considering Hewitt's Conceptual Physics, though he will have the math background to handle quite a bit of Algebra based physics. I am assuming that the mathematics in Algebra based would be fairly substantial and the major fixture of the curriculum. That has not really worked out before as Ds is not really looking to stretch himself in science. He is curious, but needs a bit of depth and content to keep him going. I am looking for something like the Apologia Chemistry or GPB Chemistry. Some math, but light and not central to the science. Anyone have experience here? Does the edition of Hewitt matter? We are looking at the college version instead of the high school. Is there something in the high school edition that we really should have that is not in the college edition? Supposedly there are no answers, but you can purchase a practice workbook which contains the odd answers along with extra problems. Is this accurate? For the tenth edition there is Problem Solving in Conceptual Physics for Conceptual Physics appears to be the practice workbook. What is in Practicing Physics for Conceptual Physics? Are there any other programs out there that are not mathematics central that might be better, more interesting, or that I should consider? I'll throw this up on the high school board if needed, but I was wanting to see if anyone here has info for kids who are younger, but really want content. ETA: He will be in sixth grade next year, through Algebra 1 and about half of Geometry. He will also have completed Earth Science and Chemistry.
