Interactive Science for Inquiring Minds is a series comprised of a textbook, theory workbook, and practical workbook in Level A and Level B. The Interactive Science textbooks aim to provide students with a solid foundation for the learning of science at upper secondary level and beyond.

Students will be challenged to think critically and to use the inquiry approach. Providing an interactive experience, students will see that science is relevant and interesting! Level A covers science as inquiry; measurement; physical quantities and units; matter; elements/compounds/mixtures; separation techniques; solutions and suspensions; cells; atoms & molecules; transporting in living things; digestion; and sexual reproduction.

Textbook features include:

  • Try This! opportunities to make inquiries, share ideas, and carry out cooperative learning.
  • "Exploring Further" questions or activities to encourage students to think further into a topic.
  • "Science in Action" notes to expose students to the applications of science in daily life and in the industry.
  • "Science Nugget" sidebars with useful, relevant, and interesting snippets of scientific knowledge.
  • "Workbook Link" that link textbook concepts with the activities and practical experiments in the theory and practical workbooks.
  • "Connect" shows the links between science and other fields of study.
  • "Key Point" outlines with a summary of the important concepts and principles in the chapter to help students recall what they have just learnt.
  • "Let's Review!" end-of-chapter structured questions.
  • "At a Glance" graphic summary in the form of a concept map.
  • "Think Tank" open-ended questions that develop and inculcate critical and creative thinking skills.
  • "IT" Internet resources to further explore each topic.

    There are no answers in the textbook. Answers can be found in the sold-separately Teacher's Guide. 246 full-color pages, indexed, softcover. Grades 7-8.

    PARENTS, PLEASE NOTE: This book contains a full chapter on puberty changes, sexual reproduction, and childbirth with detailed illustrations. Different methods of contraception and sterilization are discussed (with photographs of condoms and other methods), as well as abortion. Students are encouraged to look at the different perspectives (medical & social) for abortion and pre-marital sex, and as open and critical thinking are encouraged, this book does not explicitly endorse an conservative perspective. STIs are also discussed with photographs showing the effects. It also discusses the Singaporean Government's wishes for how many children couples should have.

    Interactive Science For Inquiring Minds is a series comprised of a 2-volume textbook, theory workbook, and practical workbook.

    This Interactive Science Theory Workbooks is written as a companion to the textbooks and practical workbooks to provide students with ample practice and reinforcement.

    Features of the theory workbooks include:

  • Activities that are fully or partially guided to provide opportunities for students to acquire and develop science process skills, manipulative skills and creativity in the learning of science.
  • Portfolio Assessments encourage students to further explore each topic through thought-provoking questions that are closely related to the practical activities.
  • Using IT promotes the use of internet resources for students to further explore each topic independently and in groups using the inquiry approach and to broaden their scientific knowledge.
  • Revision activities consist of varied question types and questions with different level of difficulty.

    Each activity has clearly defined aims, background information and many illustrations to guide the students along. The activities are designed to help students acquire the necessary process skills and provide opportunities for hands-on learning. Questions are provided in every activity to help the students draw inferences and conclusions.

    A revision worksheet is included in each chapter. Each revision worksheet has multiple choice questions, short-answer or structured questions and a data response question. It helps to evaluate the student' understanding of each chapter and to provide ample examinations practice for the students.

    The Interactive Science for Inquiring Minds Theory Workbook is suitable for both class and home use. Although the activities are designed for group work, most of them, or parts of them, can be done independently. Some of them, such as a visit to the water treatment plant in Singapore, cannot be done as given, but can be adapted. The review questions can be used as tests, since each chapter in the textbook also has review questions.
