Earth Science is a middle-school text designed to foster a sense of wonder and responsibility for God's amazing world while teaching students about geology, the weather cycle, and more.

This book features classic Novare textbooks characteristics: a smaller profile; vibrant and relevant graphics; interesting, clear, conversational prose; an approach that connects students with real-world science as stewards of God's creation; and guiding principles of Mastery Learning and Integration. Throughout the text, key concepts, definitions, and skills are repeated. Students rehearse and reencounter prior concepts as they learn new content with a view toward more thorough retention. Relevant subjects such as mathematics, history, language skills, measurement and more are also integrated to demonstrate the connections that exist between all subjects. Each chapter begins with learning objectives and has "learning checks" along the way for review along with exercises at the end of each chapter. There is no teacher's manual, workbook, test book, or separate experiment manual for this text; supplemental materials are provided in the digital resources (not-included; sold-separately as a set).

Earth Science should be about much more than learning about rocks and mountains and the seasons. Within the context of the fascinating study of landforms, minerals, and planetary phenomena, many other timely and important topics are covered including conservation of natural resources, climate change, pollution, environmental justice, and the current scientific consensus concerning geologic history.

Introductory Physics is ideal for the "physics first" high school science program, which places a physics-based course in the freshman year. The Novare Science philosophy believes physics logically belongs at the start of the high school science sequence because it includes so many foundational skills and concepts that chemistry and biology studies can build upon later. However, this book can also easily be used in 10th or 11th grade in the "traditional" placement; two optional chapters ("Pressure and Buoyancy" and "Geometric Optics") have been included with more challenging math content for those older students. Students should be concurrently enrolled in Algebra 1, or have already completed Algebra 1. It does not use trigonometry (Physics: Modeling Nature is an advanced physics text that does use trig).

This book features classic Novare textbooks c haracteristics: a smaller profile; vibrant and relevant graphics; interesting, clear, conversational prose; an approach that connects students with real-world science and is written from the perspective of the historic Christian faith; and guiding principles of Mastery Learning and Integration. Throughout the text, key concepts, definitions, and skills are repeated. Students rehearse and reencounter prior concepts as they learn new content with a view toward more thorough retention. Topics based in other subjects are also integrated to demonstrate the connections that exist between all scientific subjects. Each chapter begins with learning objectives and includes a weekly cumulative quiz along with chapter exercises that require calculations or full-sentence answers.

The Introductory Physics Complete Solutions and Answers book was created in response to customer requests and is intended for use by teachers, graders, and homeschooling parents, not student use. If you are buying the Introductory Physics Program, you may still want to include a copy of the Solutions Manual for your student to use without giving them the answer keys.

It includes all answer keys to chapter exercises, quizzes, tests and semester exams are included in a single book as well as the worked-out solutions to all calculations.

For those familiar with the program already, it is the combination of the answer keys on the Digital Resources for Introductory Physics, from the back of the book, both verbal and calculation, plus the Solutions Manual.

The Novare Science General Chemistry course features a mastery-based textbook that features carefully crafted exercises, quizzes, and textbook chapters, with key material reviewed throughout the year.

The history of modern chemistry, mathematics, and technical communication is integrated throughout the narrative and helps students see how science is interconnected.

Written from a biblical perspective, this text helps students learn how Christians do science from a faith-informed viewpoint. Featuring a more robust spiritual component than Bible verses scattered across the page, students will study science as a disciple studying God's created order.

Physics: Modeling Nature from Novare Science is a STEM college-prep course that's perfect for students who'd like to have a technical career. This mastery-based text features helpful illustrations and chapters that explain concepts in detail and include information on the essential historical background of the discipline. Students will learn about the legacy these scientists left behind as well as the current-day scientific community. This text, like all Novare Science courses, emphasizes a mastery-learning paradigm, integrating related subjects, and a Kingdom perspective that inspires wonder in the beauty and complexity of God's great world.

Modeling Nature employs vector calculations and trigonometry is required as a prerequisite. Problems in the text are not calculus-based, but since many students will take calculus concurrently with advanced physics, connections between the two are frequently highlighted.

For an AP course, Modeling Nature can be used with the AP Physics 1/2 curriculum. These texts together cover the entire AP curriculum with a small number of exceptions.
