This course is designed to be the last science course a student takes before high school biology. It discusses such topics as the atmosphere, hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, and environmentalism — this program concentrates on physics; especially the physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. As always in his well-conceived books, Dr. Wile includes numerous hands-on experiments. A perfect course for preparing students to take a college-prep high school science curriculum. The text is written in a conversational style, making it easy to read and understand. It contains student exercises (with detailed solutions), experiments, and tests (with detailed solutions). Taught from a Christian viewpoint with emphasis on the incredible design features apparent throughout God's creation.
Comes in two volumes: an oversize hardbound "student text", printed on glossy stock — including mostly black and white, but a few color photos and illustrations; and a "solutions and tests" manual. Price includes both volumes and free curricular support from the author.
