    Default High School Science

    Hi All!

    I am looking for a High School Science curriculum for dd. She already has a biology and chemistry credit. She needs one more to graduate this year. I looked through the list here, tried ck-12. And she didn't like it. She doesn't like doing her school work online. She likes the text and workbook in hand. Short lessons would be awesome. Maybe even videos and a workbook to go along with it? If its long winded she loses interest real quick. I am still open to any and all suggestions.

    Have you checked out any MOOCs to see if there are introductory courses that she might be interested in?

    Khan can be a good source, supplemented with a strong textbook.

    I'm not great for resources, as we didn't use video lessons for science. But think outside of the typical biology, chem, physics for topics. Geology, oceanography, botany, zoology, anatomy, astronomy are all possibly more interesting topics.

    Thank you all very much! I checked them all out and she is going to be going with astronomy. We got a really nice astronomy book, took out the telescope. She will also be building solar clock along with it. I think I just got overwhelmed by the options. OMG! The options! Yikes! Then of course she likes the actual book in hand with a question and answer booklet to go with it. Geez! Shes picky! LOL! I am going to run with that and say its a good thing!

    Thank You!
