This upper level self-study course collates all 29 chapters of the Conceptual Integrated Science textbook into 5 units and a total of 29 lessons (one lesson per chapter). This is ample material for two semesters of study. This course, adapted from a college level curriculum, provides a strong and enjoyable introduction to integrated science for the mature high school student. Recommended for grade levels 10 and higher. As with all our courses, performance on our automated quizzes is tracked through a student grade book. Video tutorials and reading assignments are complemented by study advice from the authors, worksheets, computer simulations, homework assignments, automated quizzes, and unit exams. Included are numerous lab activities that can be performed using materials available within your household or a local discount store. This course serves well as a precursor to our Conceptual Physics or Conceptual Chemistry courses, which provide greater depth on a broader range of topics. To learn more about this comprehensive Conceptual Integrated Science course, please review its users manual.

The Conceptual Science textbook series along with Conceptual Self-Study Online courses provide a wonderful option for science at the higher levels. These thorough texts are a super option for a secular science text. a La Carte editions of these texts are unbound, 3-hole punched (you provide a binder) versions of the full text that let you take out only what you need (rather than carrying the whole text), and the margins are wider for notetaking purposes.

Conceptual Academy is an online option that offers flexibility, rigor, and content-rich courses for a solid science curriculum. The authors of the Conceptual Science textbooks have created these video tutorials to complement their texts and are a great option for independent learners. These are self-study courses in which the author becomes the instructor. "FYI" pages within the course help with frequently asked questions. There are worksheets, chapter summaries, and unit exams with directions on how to take them using the collaborative "pyramid" format. Hands-on activities within the textbook can serve as the labs. The courses can be accessed from laptops and desktop computers, and 'mobile links' are posted with each video lesson that allow play on mobile devices. The textbook must be purchased separately.

 The sequence of these texts and courses are as follows: Physical Science Explorations and Integrated Science Explorations at the junior high level, then Conceptual Physics, Conceptual Chemistry, then Conceptual Biology (still in development. If beginning this series at the high school level, then the student should begin with upper level Conceptual Physical Science before going on to physics, chemistry, and biology. Please note that the complete course requres purchase of the textbook AND the online course. Older edition textbooks can be used with some modification.
