Product Description:

Beginning with an overview of physics, students will study chemistry, biology, earth science, and astronomy to prepare for high school level science. This item is the online instruction. The required textbook, Conceptual Integrated Science 3rd edition (ISBN 9780131358614), is available on the used market.

Publisher Description:

This self-study course collates all 39 chapters of the Conceptual Integrated Science Explorations textbook into 5 units and a total of 39 lessons (one lesson per chapter). Recommended for grade levels 7 9. With a greater number of shorter lessons, this "Explorations" course is a less rigorous version of the CIS Full Version course. There is still ample material for two semesters of study. Along with a library of video tutorials and reading assignments, included are worksheets, simulations, study advice from the authors, automated quizzes with grade book, complete labs using household materials, and unit exams. This course provides a strong and enjoyable introduction to integrated science for the junior high school student. It also serves well as a precursor to our higher level Conceptual Physics or Conceptual Chemistry courses, which provide greater depth on a broader range of topics. While biology video lessons are still under development, this course is currently discounted from our regular "full version" courses.

Category Description for Conceptual Science Middle School:

Offering a broad introduction to the basic concepts of science and the joy of learning science, each of these middle school courses are two years in length.

Conceptual Academy’s self-study courses meet the needs of college-bound students who plan to major in a non-science-based field. Taking a physics-first approach, this secular science program is a hybrid that integrates a textbook and online portal for self-study. Most courses require the purchase of a physical or pdf textbook along with the Online Course. Currently, purchase of Biology courses includes the textbook in a PDF format, as well as the online course. For other courses, see individual courses for textbook ISBNs that may be available from us or used through other online suppliers. Conceptual Academy also recommends the more affordable optional e-Textbook from Vital Source. Access information for the course will be emailed in 1-2 business days after purchase.

So, what is Conceptual Academy? Centered on video instruction created by the text authors, Conceptual Academy’s self-study courses are content rich and flexible for independent learners. There are worksheets, chapter summaries, automated quizzes and homework, a grade book, supplemental podcasts with chapter discussions, educational advice and interviews, chapter summaries, and more. Hands-on activities within the textbook can serve as the labs and use common household items. Also available are interactive simulations from University of Colorado and eScience Lab kits (additional cost). Purchase of the online course is for one year, one student. 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. Unless noted, 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. 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 requires purchase of the textbook AND the online course. Older edition textbooks can be used with modifications.
