More About the Author
I could never decide which science I liked best, so I ended up studying them all. My job as a professor of science education unites my love for physics, chemistry, biology and environmental science with my love for teaching and research. I love to write books for science teachers and hope that others can be as enthusiastic about learning about the world around them as I am. I love to spend time outdoors, whether skiing, mountain climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, or hiking. My wife and three children love the outdoors as well, and our favorite past time is to go camping in the mountains I am an elder at Valley Presbyterian Church, North Hills, California and active in a variety of Christian ministries. I thoroughly enjoy writing and am looking forward to writing my next book.

My only very minor gripe is that a few activities are repeated several times in slightly different formats. More thorough editing and/or cross-referencing would be helpful.
I would recommend the book for homeschoolers such as myself who want to give their students real lab experiences, and also probably for "regular" teachers in middle or high schools.

I've seen most of these labs before. There are no "student handouts" provided in this book, making it far from "easy-to-use" as if I wanted to do any of these labs... Read morePublished on July 18, 2013 by pam01003
