Product Description:

An interesting look at the field of medicine from Hippocrates on. The book covers major developments throughout the ages along with the pioneers who authored them. Aspiring doctors, nurses or others leaning toward a medical profession will appreciate this survey.

These Softcover Texts explore science topics from a Christian perspective and include review questions for assessment. Books are divided by topical chapter, each containing informative text, black-and-white illustrations and photos, and review questions. The text is engagingly written, weaving in stories of scientific discovery and famous scientists, instead of simply offering facts. While the visuals are black-and-white, they are detailed and clearly labeled. Review questions consist of true/false and multiple choice questions, along with a short list of questions students can use for further research, writing assignments, or be extended into projects. Answers to the short answer questions are found in the back along with a glossary and index. This series could form the core of an upper-elementary or middle school science program when combined with one of the new Parent Lesson Planners, or be used as a topical supplement. 160+ pgs each.

Student Questions and Teacher Key/Test books have also been created by Memoria Press for additional assessment. These are not referenced by the Master Books PLP, but are used in the Memoria Press Classical Curriculum, or can be used to flesh out review and assessment if using the books as a junior high course. While there was previously one “Questions, Reviews, Tests” book for each title, the series has been revised and there are now two books per text: a Supplemental Student Questions workbook with supplemental questions and review questions (for the student’s use), and a Teacher Key and Tests which holds the answer key, unit tests, final exam, and test key. The Supplemental Student Questions book includes a variety of question formats, although short answer is the most common. All are paperback and are not reproducible.- Jess

I’m teaching 10-13 year olds with this book and they are thorough enjoying it. With the Memoria Press workbooks it’s a very good option for a classical presentation to History.

Nice book!
This is a great way to teach history and science. We’re doing it with Anatomy and Physiology in high school!

Fascinating Stuff to Know
Much of medicinal knowledge is relatively recent, historically speaking. Students may not know about how brutal surgery was before anesthetics or consider hand-washing a discovery! Each chapter ends with a worksheet of True False/ multiple choice "test" questions. (We did them aloud). This isn't a science curriculum but a history OF the medicinal sciences. I chose to supplement it with some elementary/middle school history encyclopedias from Usborne publishers.

Almost done with this book and it has been a good one I have made sure that I can hear each chapter that my son reads because it is so interesting to me I have learned so much myself You can easily get through three chapters a week Several questions are at the end of each chapter It has been something that has kept my son's interest and he enjoys reading about the history of medicine It has blown him away that men with great pride had actually held back discoveries and treatments that could save lives So good Biblical teaching can be taught with this book and when a man had a relationship with God it is mentioned in this book as well Love it! i found the price to be reasonable as well

This has been a great resource for us We have used it to supplement history science and reading There are questions at the end of each chapter that we have used for comprehension I would suggest this book for children ages nine and up depending on reading ability and sensitivity to the content There are several pictures throughout the text that a younger child may find disturbing but that have been used well to present the information It is very easy to use with little or no preparation I feel this book works best for visual learners I think I appreciate the comprehension aspect of this book the most as other books on this topic I have seen leave this out Great value at Rainbow Resource
