Product Description:

14 chapters cover motion, the Laws of Motion, gravity, simple machines, energy, heat, states of matter, save motion, light, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetism, nuclear energy, and future physics. The early chapters incorporate plenty of scientific history, and include biographical details of Aristotle, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Johannes Kepler, and others.

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

My son has enjoyed the chemistry book in this series and asked for the Physics series.

This is an excellent middle school physics book. I've used the same author for chemistry, biology and the History of Medicine.

Looks like a good introduction to Physics.

I have used a number of other Exploring the world books and found them to be well written.
Tamara H on Aug 23, 2017
My son is interested in Physics and this looked good for his interest up to adults; something that isn't dumbed down.

This book was a requirement for my son's pre-Physics class. It is not complicated, and provides good historical background of many scientists. It's a great book for the non-science focused high schooler, or the science focused younger student who wants to get a jump in the subject.
Amy S on Mar 2, 2017
I have the "World of Chemistry" and love the way this is written. The children understand the text, and I am able to teach a couple of grades at the same time with the same text.

We have several of John Tiner's Exploring books. They are informative and readable at the middle school level, so we wanted to collect two more volumes.

Can these Exploring the World of...science books be used for high school credit worthy classes? Perhaps if coupled with a hands on kit? Are they in depth enough for that if using with the Memoria Press workbooks?
User on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Exploring the World of . . . series has a target audience of middle school (through 9th grade). The Memoria Press guides have a middle school target audience (grades 5-8). Using this series as high school credit is not a strong science option but might be acceptable depending on your state or any institution/group to which you report. Adding a hands on kit might make them more interesting and relevant but would probably not count as a high school lab.
