  1. What Science books do you offer?
    1. Earlybird Start-up Science (G1-2)
    2. MPH Science (G1-6)
    3. Lower Secondary Science (G7-8)
    4. Science Matters (G9-10)

  2. What are the differences between the different Primary Science series for 1st - 6th grades?
    The Earlybird Start-up Science series is a fun series aimed at introducing young learners to scientific concepts.

  3. Do you have sample pages for review?
    Yes, sample pages are listed under the Contents_Sample tab on the product detail information page of each item.

  4. Do you have contents for each level?
    Yes, contents are listed under the Contents_Sample tab on the product detail information page of each item.

  5. Are the activities and experiments suitable for homeschoolers?
    Most of the activities can be done by homeschoolers, but some of them do require material that is relatively expensive, as they were written for a classroom situation and meant to give the students exposure to scientific investigation using laboratory material. The experiments that require material that is too expensive or hard to obtain can be skipped or substituted with other experiments.

Earlybird Start-Up Science

  1. How many books are there in this series?
    There are four books in the Earlybird Start-Up Science series suitable for 1st through 2nd grades. There are no workbooks or teacher's guides for this series.

MPH Science International Edition

  1. How many books are there in this series?
    This series consists of a set of books for each year. The components for Primary 1 through 6 consist of the following:
    • 2 textbooks
    • 2 activity books
    • 2 Teacherís Guides

  2. Are answers provided for the activity books?
    Answers are in the Teacherís Guide.

  3. I homeschool my children. Do I need the Teacherís Guide?
    Teacher's Guides are simply guides. They make the program more complete. Whether you need it or not depends on your style. The guides do round out the program by providing additional resources in the form of background information, additional activities, and internet links. As the experiments get more complicated, the guides provide more help with preparation.

    Teacher's Guides do include the answers to the questions in the textbook and to the activity book. Because this is an inquiry-based program, the textbook and activity book are meant to stimulate interest and a desire to find out more about science outside of the textbook alone. Doing all the enrichment and exploration activities in the textbook and activity book, plus adding in other science books from the library would round out the program just as well as the additional information a teacher would provide from the resources in the guide.

Science Matter Series

  1. What levels are the Science Matters series for?
    Science Matters series is for 9th and 10th grade levels.

  2. What subjects are covered in Science Matters series?
    The Science Matters series consists of three different packages, covering the three disciplines of Science - Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

  3. Do you have sample pages for review?
    Yes, sample pages are listed under the Contents_Sample tab on the product detail information page of each item.

  4. Do you have contents for each level?
    Yes, contents are listed under the Contents_Sample tab on the product detail information page of each item.

  5. Do the Science Matters books come with answer keys?
    Teacher's Editions which contain answers are available for the workbooks and practical books.

  6. Are Teacher's Guides available for Science Matters series?
    Teacher's Guide are not available for the textbooks.

  7. What is Practical Book?
    Practical book provides interesting activities and experiments. Please note that some of these activities and experiments are not meant to be carried out at home. Also, note that the Teacherís Editions only have answers to the questions. It does not contain information on how to set up and prepare for the lab, such as how to make up solutions of specified molarity.

  8. Are there any testing material for this series?
    We do not have any separate testing material for this series.

  9. Is Earth Science or Space Science covered in Science Matters?
    There is no Earth Science or Space Science in this series.

  10. What kind of equipment do we need to carry out the experiments?
    The practical exercises require standard laboratory equipment (e.g. beakers, test tubes, thermometer, graduated cylinders) and chemicals (e.g. copper sulfate, sulfuric acid) that would have to be purchased from a science supply company. A few experiments require more expensive equipment (e.g. microscope, Bunsen burner) or more specialized equipment (e.g. ball and ring apparatus). Some substitutions can be made for some of the more expensive equipment (e.g. alcohol burner or stove for the Bunsen burner), or certain experiments omitted, but the use of some of the less expensive equipment is advisable for a complete program. The workbooks show laboratory set-ups; familiarity with the equipment and procedures is helpful in answering the corresponding questions. Note: For safety reasons, some of the experiments and activities in the practical books are suitable for carrying out only inside of a science laboratory. Once you select the experiments you want to do, then you will need to list and order necessary materials from various science supply places.
