Food Science Fusion
By the time today’s elementary students reach adulthood, 75% of new career opportunities will likely be in STEM fields. ScienceFusion® combines the interactive digital engagement today’s students expect, and the learning support they need, to advance in science with in-depth understanding. This course introduces the basic principles of physics and chemistry to lay the foundation for more advanced lab sciences. Students gain experience using facts, graphs, data tables, concepts, and math skills in problem-solving situations. Basic laboratory skills are developed along with literacy in biological and chemical theory to link the academic material with its practical applications.
You will likely use a mixture of book-based and e-learning as well as hands-on activity so you will not use one method exclusively. The format for both book and online lessons looks like a magazine with lots of visuals that help illustrate and explain the lesson concept. The amount of text to read per lesson is less than you find in most other textbooks. A full range of interactive instructional options—write-in worktext, digital lessons, hands-on or virtual labs—engages students in small-group, lab, or whole-class settings. An experienced teacher at a Florida Title 1 middle school describes how ScienceFusion’s comprehensive approach to blended learning is a “win-win” for both students and teachers. Award-winning Digital Lessons and Virtual Labs, enhanced by more than 3,000 videos, animations, and simulations, create learning that lasts by enriching the print program with complementary content.
And write-in prompts in the print workbooks and online Student Editions promote writing and scientific thinking. Students learn about the earth’s structure and the rock cycle, evolution, genetics, ecology, heat, and energy in the second year of middle school lab science. Students learn about weather and climate, cells and the organization of life, forces, and motion in this first year of middle school lab science.
This rigorous physics course explores major concepts in physics both conceptually and mathematically. While not calculus-based, students should be highly competent in formula manipulation and all major mathematical operations. Topics include Newtonian Mechanics such as motion, forces, and conservation of energy, as well as thermodynamics, waves, electricity, and magnetism. Whether you live on the coast or completely landlocked, the ocean is a fascinating topic. This course covers the chemical and physical aspects of various marine environments, elucidating and comparing the different requirements of organisms to survive and thrive. This is a fun course for students to continue to explore some often overlooked biological topics.

Credits earned from this elective are applied to the minimum required elective credit for graduation and do not satisfy any subject-specific graduation requirements. This advanced course is dedicated to understanding the interactions between Earth’s natural systems and the demands placed on them by the human population.
Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies. ScienceFusion is a beautifully presented and technologically rich program that is engineered to help students with different learning styles be successful. It also engages students in the world of science in a manner likely to create enthusiasm and interest. Aside from potential philosophical problems, the only downside to this program is that it has so many components and unusual methods of presentation that it is difficult to figure out how to locate and use them. You need not use everything, but do allow time to explore the program, find the essential components, and get a handle on how to use it before it’s time to begin teaching.

It is not as simple as clicking a button and it naturally progressing you onto the next activity when they are ready. No, that is a separate purchase that you would have to make directly from HMHCO. Stay on top of the world of science education with webinars, conferences, blog posts, and more. Take your students on a tour through the world of science right in your classroom. The Middle School Earth Science course assists students in becoming life-long learners who grow in their understanding of the world.
