      Kathleen Wile narrates the complete text on the Discovering Design with Chemistry Audio Book USB flash drive (8G). This is just chapter content (including examples), and not the comprehension questions or experiments. Your auditory learners will love this and the articulate and clear recording. Play it anywhere you have a USB port – on your computer, in your car or other listening devices which have a USB format. You can download the audio files to your computer and MP3 player or iPod from your computer. I tried this in my car, and it was so easy to just plug and play. This makes listening on the go much more convenient. This flash drive format also eliminates the problem for those who have no disc drive on their computer or MP3-compatible CD player. This is a great companion to the text!

    This science kit is designed to introduce early science and chemistry concepts to very young kids through fun and engaging activities. Eight suggested activities are given in the experiment book, including investigations on solubility of different powders, pH, how the temperature of water affects solubility, evaporation of salt water to make dissolved salt "reappear," investigating gelatin and color, and microscopic investigations. Included in the kit are gelatin, baking soda, citric acid, a Petri dish, measuring spoon, blank and prepared slide, pH testing strips, small capped containers, small magnifier, pipette, two plastic cups, and a simple but decent small plastic microscope. A nice thing about this kit is that a lot all the materials are safe, the investigations don't require a lot of time, and older kids can even do them with younger ones. And of course, the materials are commonly-used and easily "refillable" if they get hooked. - Jess

    Chemistry is one of those difficult areas for the homeschooled student to compete effectively with their public school peers if Mom or Dad don't have much background except what they may (or may not!) have picked up in high school or college years ago. I think it's helpful to have a resource on hand that can provide a simple, direct explanations and examples of chemical problems, so they can look these things up when struggling through a textbook chemistry program. That's why I like these "Easy Way" books. They're large (this one at nearly 450 pages), they contain logically organized, and easy-to-find information to explain concepts, and then include a wealth of end-of-chapter review questions to offer the student more practice. They're designed to help the student struggling in a particular area, and they really break down concepts and examples, and provide the tools to challenge themselves to push ahead in that area. Chemistry contains 16 information-packed chapters on topics such as chemistry basics, atomic structure, bonding, chemical formulas, gases, chemical calculations and moles, phase changes, chemical reactions and their rates, chemical equilibrium, acids/bases/salts, oxidation/reduction, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, nucleonics, and more. Throughout the chapters, chemical equations are worked out to illustrate the concept, and many more are found at the end-of-chapter review, primarily in multiple choice form. At the end of the book are five practice tests as well as answers with explanations and a worksheet to analyze your performance. These will help pinpoint areas that you need to work on as well as areas you already understand. Following these are a collection of reference charts and tables, a periodic table, and a glossary. From someone who's had four semesters of college-level chemistry, it's apparent that this book covers a lot of bases, and the student who takes the time to use this tool and takes the time to understand the concepts will not only find high school chemistry a breeze, but they'll have a much firmer grasp on college chemistry as well. Formerly titled Chemistry the Easy Way. - Jess

    When you think of things that glow, what comes to mind? Glow sticks, lightning bugs and those strange deep-sea creatures maybe? Why do they glow? How can we use glowing liquids and plastics in everyday life? Start your investigations here. This kit by Thames & Kosmos is packed with information and 22 experiments all about things that glow. You'll discover many more examples of glowing life in the natural world, experiment with ultraviolet light, mix up glowing blue light in a test tube, experiment with glow-in-the-dark plastic and even build a glowing puppet theatre. The 48-page, fully illustrated instruction book walks you through all of the activities and provides an abundance of additional information as well. Supplies include test tubes, chemicals, a Petri dish, small safety goggles, pipettes, a small ultraviolet lamp, a measuring spoon, and more. – Jess

    Can you name the bird after which some bullet trains are designed or what an Osage Orange Tree and barbed wire have in common? Biomimicry is a process through which we discover and utilize designs from nature; useful features that benefit living things and also can be employed for the welfare of mankind. This book looks at design examples from 8 different categories of nature: microorganisms, insects, flight (bats, birds, flying reptiles), underwater life, land animals, people, vegetation, and nonliving objects like the Opal, nanoparticles, and water flow. The chapter on vegetation even includes a chart of medical benefits we receive from certain plants and animals. Each two-page spread tells about the example, what we have learned, and its application. Each passage is followed by questions for further study and either internet search words or references. Answers to the questions and a glossary are found at the back of the book.

    FYI: The front of some bullet trains is designed to look like the bill of a kingfisher to cut down on noise. The kingfisher is able to dive into water without much splash despite the change in pressure. This is similar to the change in air pressure experienced when a bullet train exits a tunnel, and the shape decreases sound that would normally be caused by the change in air pressure. Scientists are studying nature everyday in order to benefit mankind and this book looks at those discoveries through the lens of a Christian worldview. ~ Donna

    Although designed as a high school course, IPC can be an excellent science course for pre-high school students. The full course equates to two high school transcript credits: Physics and Basic Chemistry. Teachers can elect to have students complete all twelve chapters in one year to earn two transcript credits. Another option is to divide the course in half, selecting six chapters to be completed for one transcript credit for Conceptual Physics (chapters 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12) or six chapters for one credit in Basic Chemistry (chapters 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11).

    Includes all texts, activity packets, and Teacher's Resource Kit w/ digital downloads.
