Our recommendation:

Components of Physics Matters:

The Textbook can be used in a school or home setting for 10th or 11th grade students. It can be read independently; although there are numerous questions given in the margin for discussion. There is a lot of math. Students should have a basic understanding of algebra, how to work with formulas and measurement units, and basic trigonometry.  The textbook contains many investigations many of which are not in the Practical Book, but do require basic laboratory apparatus. Expected observations and conclusions are included. There are clear links to the practical book and workbook,

The Practical Book is meant for a school setting. The experiments require laboratory apparatus, and some require data loggers. Homeschoolers could do many of them at home if they buy any necessary material. The Practical is a separate course and does not follow the textbook lesson by lesson but rather complements the textbook.

The Teacherís Edition of the Practical Book is a copy of the Practical studentís edition with answers printed on the pages.

The Workbook can be easily used in a school or home setting.  There are one or two worksheets for each chapter. The worksheets are structured like the exams in Singapore and include a multiple-choice section, a structured answer section, and a free response section.

The Teacherís Edition of the Workbook is a copy of the Workbook studentís edition with answers printed on the pages.

The Teacherís Planning Guide is a good resource for teachers with detailed lesson plans, numerous links to internet sites, additional activities, and handouts, as well as a list of material used for the investigations. Homeschoolers will probably find it essential. The guide includes worked out solutions for the problems in the textbook.
