Note - These are just ratings based on my experiences over the last several years.
Please visit the sample PowerPoints, bundled homework packages, and unit notes to
better gauge the difficulty rating and appropriate unit for your students. I have been
amazed by the students ability when presented a challenging unit.
This is an original curriculum that I have created and used in the classroom for
many years. This is not a product of the large educational companies. Where
it excels in comparison is in its creativity, simplicity, format, originality, ease of
instruction, and it's fun for the students without comprising their learning. These units
were not created with an entire team of writers, editors and scientists. If you come
across an error of any kind, may it be a simple typo, or other issue than I am sorry.
Please contact me and I will fix it immediately. The units have been revised and modified
over many years in the classroom with success. Even with all of these checks, they are
not perfect. Science as well as the craft of teaching is learning through experience. I
wanted you to know this before purchase. I am confident you and your students will enjoy
learning from the units that I have created. Thank you for your time and interest in this
website. If you have any questions please contact me at
