CPO Science Teaching and Learning Systems are inquiry based, hands-on science programs for high school Physical Science classes. Physical, Earth, and Space Science is an integrated approach. Earth and space science concepts are integrated with physics and chemistry concepts. For example, students learn how major science concepts such as energy, heat, and forces apply to earth and space sciences. Recurring themes found throughout the program include energy, forces systems, and property of matter. Many of the important science concepts are repeated in different ways to support a variety of learning styles. More than 1,400 content-rich illustrations, numerous charts, graphs, and data tables support your students and assist them in understanding content.

Investigation Manual

Cover of Physical, Earth, and Space Science textbook

The Investigations Manual is the heart of all CPO Science textbook programs. Every activity has a key question, a brief introduction, icons, section titles, numbered steps, and illustrations. All diagrams, illustrations, and pictures relate directly to the actual equipment your students use in the lab, including lab safety precautions. Students are introduced to Probeware and use it throughout the investigations.

Softcover. 300 pages.

There are 84 investigations in the lab manual— 3 investigations per chapter:

  • "A" investigations introduce the concepts and are completed before the student reads the chapter in the text
  • "B" investigations reinforce science concepts. Students apply the knowledge they have learned in the chapter
  • "C" investigations are supplementary labs that extend the major concepts from the chapter
