Kfamily Posted June 12, 2012 Share Posted June 12, 2012 (edited) I have The Sciences: An Integrated Approach by Hazen and Trefil and I am considering this text for my older dd. Here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Sciences-An-Integrated-Approach/dp/0471769924 I also have Science Matters: Achieving Scientific Literacy by the same authors. I could add this book and other books, essays, dvds and other supplements. I could also add a lab component by either adding a kit(s) or something else. This is a college level text, so I'm assuming it would be okay level-wise. My dd really agrees with the idea of integrated science (and math too, but I'm just not ready to handle that....lol). What do you think about this? I was thinking about this sequence.... 9th Introduction to Physics and Chemistry (we've already started this text from Prentice Hall) 10th Integrated Science with lab 11th Chemistry (Prentice Hall) with lab 12th Biology (Prentice Hall) with lab I'm fairly confident that she won't be able to do a calculus based physics (we won't make it there in math....pre-calculus for 12th). Both 9th and 10th grade would cover some physics, so I was thinking this would be enough. The only other idea I'm considering is to do integrated science throughout with the above text, supplements, Biology text and Chemistry text (Prentice Hall) and adding one more text....something with a lab....???? I know I keep putting these questions out there...I'm sorry if it is becoming annoying to some....I'm really try to sort this out.... My dd and I really love the integrated science idea, but since I'm not experienced with it I would love some guidance. Thanks for any suggestions.
