Wow! I can't believe these are so easily accessible. I was looking for a life science text today to use portions of next week. This fits the bill. Thanks!

My DS is using the Life Science book at co-op this year in 7th grade. The co-op is also doing Earth Science in 8th grade.

We've used the Life book this year, for 4th and 5th grades. My kids have liked it and learned a lot.

You could probably do them in whatever order you choose but California does 6th- Earth, 7th- Life, 8th-Physical.

Added Math textbooks (California Edition) links to original post.

 

 

Thanks, are these math books used in your area or anywhere in N. California? I'm just wondering what books are used in the top schools. I know one that uses AOPS but that's for a different track of students apparently.

They are used by some schools in NorCal eventhough the links are to a school in SoCal. Some use Holt and some use Glencoe. I am in a "normal" school district. Below is copied from a good middle school near to me so I am not linking the source.

"In 7th grade there are three courses offered: Math 7 Skills, Math 7 AB and Algebra 1. ...... The algebra course is taught from the Holt Algebra 1 book and covers the entire textbook,

In 8th grade, we offer three different courses: Introduction to Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry. ... The Algebra 1 class uses Holt Algebra 1, the same curriculum as described in the 7th grade algebra class.

The Geometry class uses McDougal Littell’s Geometry for Enjoyment and Challenge and is offered to 8th graders who have successfully completed the Algebra I class in 7th grade."(bolded mine)

Right, I keep thinking Algebra starts in High School, which it still does in a couple of schools here, but I should have looked at the middle schools first.

Is it just me, or do these study guides not seem to match up with the book? I'm going through the Earth Science right now, and I can't figure it out.

Reviving this for half a second to say that the math links no longer work, bummer. I think I have these online texts already, but I wanted to double check.

 

WILL be using the science stuff though! This is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

You are amazing, thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in to help people; I so appreciated it in my other thread about my son, and now I see you are just as amazing with resources for my daughters level!

Anyone else having trouble with the virtual labs? Can I just buy a cheap used textbook off of amazon and use the above links for everything else? Does this include "do-able" labs that don't require expensive equipment? (I'm comparing to the $1200 CPO lab kit for physical science).

 

Also, what about this package? http://www.rainbowresource.com/product/sku/050234/81c808471f1cdfa7f6c08011

I just looked at/tried some of these links. I'm wondering, are these links a 'back door' into someone else's licensed versions of the online texts? It's looking like some of the links are through b&m school's pages. Which, I would think, would mean that when their license expires the links would be invalid. Anyone know? Any thoughts?

Any idea what grade Holt Earth Science is for? I"m REAAAALLLY liking it!!

 

ETA:

My link in #1 is pointing to the high school version. No harm doing it in middle school though :)

You are amazing at finding resources. By any chance, do you know if McDougal Littell CA math is available anywhere for free? Our middle school uses it.

Kolbe has plans that use this book. (I bought 'em to use this year with my 7th grader.) They say it can be used for 6th through 8th and is definitely NOT a high school course. They schedule it in 7th.

Holt Earth Science by Allison, DeGaetano and Pasachoff is different than Kolbe's 7th grade book. Kolbe is using Holt Science and Technology Earth Science, which is not the same book.

 

The one by Allison et al. might be for high school. A Google search on "Holt Earth Science Allison" yields several high schools using it. One is here.

Sorry, Penguin. The link for Holt Earth Science is published by Holt, Rinehart, & Winston - same as Holt Science & Tech Earth Science.

 

The table of contents are really similar (The "Allison" book has 8 units, Kolbe's text has 7, but the actual content listing looks really similar - as if they were just different versions.) I didn't notice the authors of Kolbe's text were Berry, Fronk, Hemenway, Kaska, Malin, Meech & Sager. Missed the small difference!
