5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Free Earth Science Textbook 31. Oktober 2010
Von Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
"Earth Science" is a combination of various scientific disciplines that deal with the planet earth in the most general macroscopic level. Different branches of earth science encompass geology, oceanography, climatology, meteorology, and even for the purposes of understanding the position of the Earth in the Universe, astronomy.

This is by and large a very approachable and well presented introductory earth science textbook, and it is written with a high school student or beginning college student in mind. Topics covered include earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics and the continental drift, mineralogy, erosion, oceans, atmosphere, climate, the impact of humans on earth, and many others. The book concludes with a few chapters that take us beyond Earth, and aim to describe Earth's place in the Universe as a whole.

Each chapter ends with a several questions, most of which are not quantitative. In fact, this is not a very quantitatively oriented textbook, and it stresses critical and scientific thinking over quantitative skills. However, it is a very interesting and well organized textbook and provides an excellent introduction to earth science. In addition to questions, there are also numerous vocabulary terms listed at the end of each chapter. These provide the student with an opportunity to systematize the knowledge gained in the preceding chapter.

There are many illustrations and photographs throughout the textbook, and they are generally of high quality and on the average much better than in most other CK-12 textbooks.

This book is available under the Creative Commons License through the CK-12 foundation, which means it can be reprinted, modified and resold if necessary. It is also a fairly large file, pdf version being about 1500 pages long, so be prepared for a longish download.

The Kindle formatting of this textbook leaves something to be desired. The book was originally typeset in LaTeX, and this did not translate all that smoothly into the Kindle format. I've found that getting this textbook on other e-readers or computers in the epub format rendered it much more satisfactorily.

This is probably one of the best presented and formatted of all CK-12 textbooks, and comes closest to being a completely viable alternative to a traditional textbook.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Free Top-Notch Textbook 7. November 2010
Von Anne Wingate - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf

The CK-Foundation intends to create GOOD,inexpensive textbooks. In this book it is certainly succeeding. I wish this system had been available when my youngest child asked for home school for grades 8-12. I have a PhD in English and my husband has an MA in history and an MBA. But those don't make us great teachers for math and science, and we were fumbling our way through these courses.

The books are carefully planned and include all the written information the students could possibly need. As more and more outlets for experimental material for science students appear, lab work becomes more and more available even to home scholars.

Any students who complete their courses without being allowed to fail--that is, if the work is done wrong it has to be done over, something that is far more possible in home schools than in public schools or even private schools--will be well equipped to handle all college entrance exams and probably will be far ahead of their fellow students who came out of public school.

I will never forget one of my college freshmen who came to me in tears the day before Thanksgiving break. She told me that the first thing she was going to do when she got home was to go to the school board superintendent and chew him out, because she was in honors English for four years, and never learned the parts of speech or what does and does not constitute a sentence. I wish every student would do that, when he or she feels failed by the present educational system. If the students would complain, the system would have to change.

We're already seeing this in our four-year-old granddaughter, who is complaining that Church primary is boring. Right now she is enjoying public preschool, but by kindergarten age she will be so far above her fellow students that she, like her mother before her, will be bored stiff throughout public school. Her cousin, our fifth-grade granddaughter, is already reading on a high school level; what is she going to do in high school?

I'm thankful that people are willing to work without charge to create a new school system that every students can use. I have already written to volunteer my services.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is a miracle! 19. Juli 2011
Von Dorothy R. Stecker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Does this book, CK-12 Earth Science, come in book form: paper-back or hard cover? I want to hold it, yellow highlight certain sections, take notes and memorize the facts. I looked up the title in the "Search Books" and can only find it in the Kindle Edition download which is what I did AND that's where I'm reading it. However, I still want a separate copy of this miracle. Thanks.

Helping our children with homework has become an evening challenge. This book is a nice reference to compliment their textbooks.

When we design experiments, we select the factor that will be manipulated or changed. This is the independent variable. We will also choose all of the factors that must remain the same. These are the experimental controls. Finally, we will choose the factor that we are measuring, as we change the independent variable. This is the dependent variable. &quote;
