A treatment of Integrated Science suitable for middle school and lower high school students. This textbook presents all the sciences—from physics to chemistry to biology, Earth science, and astronomy plus areas where these disciplines overlap. It’s the wide story of science told in terms of its Unifying Concepts—major ideas from gravity to atoms and ecosystems—that cut across the science disciplines. This is one of our most richly illustrated textbooks full of humorous cartoons and savvy tips on science learning. Like its upper level companion, Conceptual Integrate Science—Explorations puts concepts ahead of computation, is written in a friendly voice, and emphasizes the big ideas over technical details.

“The Conceptual Science approach was pioneered by Paul Hewitt in the early 1970s and is now an integral part of the high school science curriculum. The approach makes it easy and fun to learn science concepts that are often considered dull and difficult by relating science to everyday life. It also employs a lively, conversational writing style which focuses on the big ideas, while de-emphasizing specific jargon and vocabulary.” Publisher’s Description Pearson Education
