Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.
Here they are - for those of you who want a traditional science course from a secular perspective. These are what students are using in the public schools and are written to meet content standards for each grade level. We get phone calls weekly asking what we have to offer from a secular publisher that still maintains the high-quality standards set forth by homeschool families. Saxon has come through on your behalf.
This curriculum comes from big name publishers like Holt, Houghton Mifflin, and McDougal Littell. All of these are names which set the standard for classroom education, and you can choose to have them in your home. Text books offer bright, beautiful photos and illustrations to hold students interest, and teacher editions and CD-ROMs offer all of the ancillary materials needed to round out each course. These courses are available in packages only; we are not able to sell components separately.
At the elementary level, there are Houghton Mifflin Science courses, each of which include a hard copy student text and a teacher's edition on CD-ROM. For the middle grades, there are three Holt Science and Technology courses. These are available in packages with either a hardcover teacher's edition or a parent guide CD-ROM which includes key elements of the teacher's edition in an easier-to-use format. At the high school level a variety of courses have been made available, including Holt McDougal Biology, Chemistry, Physical Science, Environmental Science, and Earth Science. The contents have changed a bit since their initial release, and currently most courses are moving towards a hard copy student text and an "Interactive Online Edition." These online editions include interactive copies of the student and teacher editions, worksheets, labs, assessments and various tools and videos. Content varies by course and access to online material is provided via a code you will receive with the student edition. Online access is limited to one year. Renewal codes for an additional year (or second student) are available. No textbook is included. Codes are emailed to you 3-5 days after purchase from Houghton Mifflin. Please note, we cannot accept returns on products with an online activation code.
For you moms, dads, and charter schools who have been asking for a well-developed curriculum that meets state and national standards - your wish has come true. ~ Donna
