This is a great text that's part of a great overall program including online resources. I've been very pleased with how this publisher presents content as well as the differentiation available for students anywhere from struggling to advanced.

Fits my child's current science knowledge. I like the layout of the text in the book (good for visual learner) and examples of real world applications (like how a to heat a house.)

I wanted a solid secular physical science program. The samples of the text appear to be written in an easily accessible (easily comprehended) style. I liked the idea of the virtual labs and videos included in the online component.

Needed a High School Level physical science book.
Lisa M on Apr 10, 2017
Felt a more secular based approach to science was necessary for my child to be better prepared. He also voiced this concern after completing 3 weeks of the Switched on Schoolhouse Science program for 8th graders.
Jennifer D on Sep 15, 2016
The variation of most sciences was appealing and the online portion will be very helpful.

Is this curriculum appropriate for an average 8th grade student?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My husband who is an engineer taught our 9th grade son using this curriculum. He thought it was a great book and all the homeschool resources that came with it, including the online interactive resources, were awesome. Highly recommended. The curriculum itself includes a lot of physics and chemistry concepts with equations - definitely appropriate for high school physical science. Younger students can manage if they are in advanced science - but will probably be parent intensive.
Is there a lab kit available that can be used with this curriculum? If not, are the materials easy to obtain?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do not have a lab kit available for this course nor do we have a list of supplies/equipment needed. In general, the necessary materials are not always household items and some can be difficult to obtain.
Does the online edition include Virtual Labs?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: it has some virtual lab, but not as many as holt's chemistry program
Does this course come with a schedule?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There is schedules, lessons plans, and pacing information in the online resources available with this homeschool package.
Just to clarify, does the Physical Science come as a hardcopy student text and the online code?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Only the hard bound book comes to you.Then if you want to access the program's online compoents you will need an activation code. Because activiation codes are "active" as soon as they're generated for this program, you'll need to request one from Rainbow's customer service department when you're ready to activate this product. They give you three different ways to do so. I hope this helps to claify.
Am I correct in assuming that the online teacher edition will include an answer key to the student text, worksheets and tests?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes...and no. I originally ordered just the student version and the hard copy teacher's edition. This is not enough. You have to have the online teacher edition in order to give quizzes and tests. Those are both included in the online edition, as well as the answers for these. The online addition also has many more worksheets and review worksheets that you can print out, and the answers to those are there as well. BUT - I have searched and searched, and I cannot find a way on the online edition to access the answers to the section reviews or chapter reviews, nor to any of the math skills sections found within some of the chapters. My hard copy teacher's edition, though, has all of these. So, I use both. My son reads the chapter in his student edition, and does any math skills sections and the section review at the end of each section. I grade these using my hard copy teacher's edition. Then, at the end of each section, I print a quiz from the online edition and score it using the online edition. I do this for the tests at the end of each chapter as well. If he needs additional work on any of the sections, chapters, or skills, I can easily print out worksheets from the online edition and score them using the online edition. Unfortunately, this costs a lot, but I felt it was absolutely worth it to have both the hard copy and interactive online teacher's editions. Hope this helps!
