    As in the other Novare science texts, there is a section written to the student in preparation for doing the course. Each chapter, then, includes objectives, information broken down into smaller digestible pieces, examples and illustrations, and wraps up with a chapter exercise. Green "Do You Know" boxes tell some interesting historical fact concerning the topic. Answers to computational questions are included with each exercise. The back of the text includes a glossary, reference data, chapter equations and objectives list, experiments with guidelines for keeping a journal, scientists to know, and accurate measurements. Chapters include nature of scientific knowledge, motion, Newton's Laws of Motion, energy, momentum, atoms/matter/substances, heat and temperature, pressure and buoyancy, waves/sound/light, introduction to electricity, DC circuits, fields and magnetism, and geometric optics.

    Five (out of six) of the experiments from the Experiments for Introductory Physics are found at the back of the student text. You can do just those five and still have very in-depth labs with lab reports. The experiment information found in the back of the student text is in addition to what is found in the Experiments for Introductory Physics book, so you will need both books.

    Experiments for Introductory Physics and ASPC (Accelerated Studies in Physics and Chemistry, for gifted students and available from the publisher) includes only six experiments. It is the author's feeling that fewer in-depth experiments with lab reports will deepen comprehension. His goal was to develop experiments that are academically solid, inexpensive, and interesting. Some of the materials needed may be more difficult to obtain, so the author has a resource on page 96 of this book that lists materials that will work at home and where they can be purchased. Each lab includes learning objectives, materials required, experimental purpose, overview, pre-lab discussion questions, how to score lab reports, student instructions, and illustrations.

    I've always thought of homeschooling as less about the specific points of information and much more about teaching students how to think and how to solve problems by retrieving for themselves any information they want to know. This book gives you a road-map for doing that and specifically doing that in our technology-based culture. More than just methods of looking up information, this book provides problems – and shows you (the mentor) how to guide your students through and into the process of good problem-solving methodologies. Taking this approach will take some time and effort for the teacher/mentor – reading through and setting up the structure – but the benefits for our children are numerous.

    Starting with the basics of why (problem-based learning) and how (fusing the internet with problem-based learning), the coaching plans are outlined, session-by-session (engagement, investigation, solution building, and debriefing) – 14 sessions total. There is a wealth of how-to information here – you'll get an education yourself in problem-solving methodologies. It's very practical, right down to the problem logs and assessment rubrics. Problem Logs are a key component – the blueprints that "walk" your student through the problem-solving process. These are step-by-step reproducible worksheets that can be employed with any problem and are used particularly with the eight problem units provided with this text. To give you a better idea of what we're talking about, here are the Problem Logs:

    • Getting Started. (What do I know? What are my hunches? Fact or opinion?)
    • Searching the Internet. (Using web addresses to visit the web. Is the information relevant; reliable?)
    • Following links. (What's the answer to our question?)
    • Putting the Puzzle Together.

    • What is the Problem? (The big question. Rules to follow)
    • Planning Your Internet Search. (What do I need to know? Doing a search. Did I find new pieces to the puzzle?)
    • How Should the Problem be Solved? (What are the possibilities? Both good and bad things can happen. What is the best thing to do?)
    • Thinking Back.

    The eight problem solving units are where the "rubber meets the road" so to speak. This is where the student begins (by using the Problem Logs) and you begin your work as coach/mentor through the process. There are four units for grades 3-4 and four for grades 5-6; each representing a 14 session problem-solving process. Can the Food Pyramid Help? is an example of a younger unit while How Am I Going To Survive Until I'm Rescued? is an older unit. Each unit provides an overview for the teacher, problem definition, unit objective (in various subject areas) and then unique features of the investigation along with some websites specific to the problem.

    As mentioned before, this process will take some preparation work by the coach/mentor but the book – written for the teacher – is designed to hold your hand through the process. The very real-life benefits to our children can be counted as both problem-solving skills and research skills – a win/win. 150 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    If you like color-by-number puzzles, but want something a little more complex, then these pixelated images of plants, animals, and other scenes are perfect. The small pixels require precision and many of the 101 puzzles feature a color key with nearly 20 different colors, so it’s a good idea to have a large pack of colored pencils ready. Full-color answers are included in the back, along with the original photographs. 160 pgs.

    This text is by the same author and follows the same standards and format as Traditional Logic. Basically, it is a guided tour through Aristotle's Rhetoric, and you will need a copy of that book to complete the course. It covers the first two books of Aristotle's thoughts on writing and oratory, basically concerning the speaker and the audience. Those familiar with Aristotle will know that he valued content and quality of writing more than technique, and this study reflects that philosophy. It should be noted that this is not an introductory course on writing, but is meant to refine those skills that students should already have, for the specific purpose of persuasion. The book is well laid out and is designed so that students can be taught even by those with little experience with this topic. The course is designed to be consumable and will lead students every step of the way through a study on rhetoric over the course of a year. Tips on how teachers can grade the work and keep students accountable are included in the book. The first part of the course covers Book One of Aristotle's Rhetoric: "Rhetoric as it Concerns the Speaker". It starts with lessons on the scope and purpose of rhetoric and the definition and division of rhetoric. The rest of the speaker section is then divided into political, ceremonial, and forensic rhetoric, with several lessons per topic. The second part of the book then covers Book Two of Aristotle's Rhetoric: "Rhetoric as it Concerns the Audience". It then gives a basic introduction to Aristotle's views on the subject and gives lessons covering Pathos, Ethos, and Logos. The text includes several ways to test students and helps them to thoroughly review and understand the content. Reading Comprehension Questions are the main part of the course and are designed to help students glean as much from Aristotle's Rhetoric as possible by completing short answer questions. Evaluating Writing Assignments require that the student not only know what Aristotle said, but assess it on the basis of their own assumptions, which may differ from Aristotle's. Weekly Research and Writing Assignments are designed to apply the lessons the student has learned. Reading Lessons are made up of questions based on Mortimer Adler's How to Read a Book, which are designed to help the student fully understand what, how, and why Aristotle says what he does. Logic and Latin Review Questions are review questions related to Traditional Logic. Though that book is not a prerequisite for this course and these questions can be skipped, the author does recommend completing that before beginning this. Finally, there are Case Study Analyses focusing on four speeches, which are classic examples of the three kinds of speeches discussed by Aristotle. Each case study is accompanied by questions relevant to the section of Aristotle just covered. These are designed as models for the students to imitate in their own persuasive discourse. The user-friendly format and multiple-aspects of reviewing make this a very complete review and guide for Aristotle's Rhetoric. A Teacher Key can be purchased separately and provides detailed answers for the lessons and exercises. ~ Rachel S.

    The Austrian school of economics is characterized by a strictly deductive approach (as opposed to the historical aspects of other schools of economic thought) and is grounded firmly in the idea that a sound economy depends on allowing people to act freely. Serving as an introduction to Austrian economics by presenting the logical reasoning behind the discipline, this book begins with the "action axiom" (men will act) and from it deduces powerful theorems – law of demand, how prices coordinate demand and supply, etc. The underlying fundamental lesson is that it is possible to think in a systematic way about economics. Written in understandable language with humorous touches, there are discussion/thought questions throughout (no answer key, though). 195 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
