Science Fusion Curriculum
Carefully vetted during its development,ScienceFusion’s success in improving student achievement is proven repeatedly in classroom testing. The Assessment Guide provides a complete directory to the program’s assessment features, including Unit Reviews, Pre- and Post-tests, Alternative Assessments, Performance-Based Assessments, and Answer Keys. ScienceFusion assessments offer formative and summative assessments in both print and digital formats.
“Bargain Books” are brand new items that have minor physical blemishes due to shipping or handling that do not affect the use of the item. Bargain books will remain in shopping cart for up to 12 hours and will then be removed if order is not completed. Orders consisting of regular and Bargain items can be purchased by credit card or PayPal and are shipped together . With expertise and backgrounds in science and education, our authors bring a lively tone and fresh approach that make learning science concepts fun and meaningful. 20 different control and experimental classes were included in this report on the findings of the impact study. Results showed statistically significant results in which use of ScienceFusion showed greater student gains than the control group.
This course covers all of the same concepts as Chemistry, including measurement, lab technique, atomic theory, kinetics, forces and reactions, and nuclear chemistry; it simplifies the more challenging mathematics. Students investigate the same topics and complete identical or comparable labs to meet the same learning outcomes through a more hands-on and accessible learning experience. This course emphasizes chemistry applications such as food science, health, and medicine. Saving valuable prep time, Content Refreshers for every lesson help keep teachers up to speed on science topics. Charts in the print planning pages break down key topics and learning goals. MySmartPlanner on the all-in-one online Teacher Dashboard supports flexible planning and customization, and the Digital Lessons and Labs offer easy access to unit- and lesson-level teaching resources.
You will need to get the teacher’s manuals for this, and they are very easy to follow. ScienceFusion is an inquiry program which means that it doesn’t just present information. Students read some information (or listen to an audio-visual presentation). But students are continually challenged to think about real-life applications, to restate concepts in their own words, to research, and to think beyond the information that is presented.
This is a completely interactive text/workbook with matching online lessons. Plus, since many households are not equipped for a wide variety of science experiments, there are virtual experiments included with the online access. I have my first-grader do the book lesson one day, the digital lesson for review on another day, then a third day for hands-on experiments.
Through multiple complementary components, students have plenty of opportunities to build their skills in reading nonfiction, writing about science, and understanding scientific concepts. Science & Engineering Leveled Readers offer high-interest topics in a range of reading levels. ScienceSaurus® Handbooks use illustration and clear explanations to support concepts.
Organic chemistry is a two semester elective that introduces the student to the chemistry of carbon-containing compounds. Topics will include structure, nomenclature, and synthesis of the major class of organic compounds. This course is designed for an advanced chemistry student and will lay a solid foundation for college organic chemistry. Scientific terms can be confusing.DOE Explainsoffers straightforward explanations of key words and concepts in fundamental science. It also describes how these concepts apply to the work that the Department of Energy’s Office of Science conducts as it helps the United States excel in research across the scientific spectrum.
