Book Description

June 1, 2008 1588342557 978-1588342553 Student
This rich, multidisciplinary curriculum to accompany Joy Hakim’s Newton at the Center covers astronomy, physics, and chemistry from Copernicus to the Curies, from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. The course of study is divided into seven units. Each unit includes an introduction (with background, materials list, and standards) and nine class sessions. The Teacher’s Quest Guide includes embedded reading strategies to facilitate greater comprehension; hands-on science experiments to encourage learning by discovery; timeline activities; several review and assessment activities for each unit; and even a time-traveling cartoon character, Professor Quest, to summarize the main point of the lessons. Multiple cross-curricular links suggest additional activities in language arts, history, art, and other subjects to extend learning. The accompanying Student's Quest Guide includes all necessary student sheets. This curriculum is ideal for traditional physical science classes, enrichment programs, and home-school settings.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good bit misleading June 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
The book is truly beautiful, and if I needed a *history* of science, this would be a keeper. Created with the Smithsonian, this book is full of art (which I love). However, I can't imagine this working as science curriculum - it's just not.

Most of the focus is on history, some of which is regarding science. Almost devoid of experiments. This student book is completely observational science. Thought provoking, indeed. But, again, not a combination that could be considered curriculum.
