Product Description
This the first 2 chapters of:

A middle school physical science textbook complete with a video of the power point lessons, links to experiments, and a flash card review.
This is volume one of a planned three volume set. Volume one covers the scientific method, matter and energy. Volume two will cover physics (motion, gravity, pressure, etc) and chemistry (chemical bonding, acids-bases, etc). Volume three will cover everything else (waves, pseudo-science, etc).
This is intended to be a middle school level physical science textbook, but it is not written as one. It is easy to understand and funny. It is not only targeted at a middle school student but sounds like one wrote it. A lot of immature examples are used, kids like this. This is not your normal textbook, it is fun to read, but includes all the vocabulary and complex ideas. The current textbooks are full of boring information but they are useless if no one wants to actually read them. A student will want to read this one, so will an adult. It explains in easy language, complex topics. There are links to demonstrations, experiments, simulations, videos, and funny examples of science. This book is written to make physical science fun, as all science should be.
Normally a textbook is written so the teacher can make a lesson from it, this one is the opposite. These are my lessons converted into a textbook. I know the lessons and examples work, so the textbook should also.
Since this is an e-book it also includes links to my power point lessons (in video form), links to videos, demonstrations, and simulations. There are a lot of links in each chapter.
This is self-published book designed to be an affordable online textbook for middle school or home school children.

Volume one covers the Scientific Method, The basics of Matter, and Energy.
