Developed in line with the 2013 Lower Secondary Science syllabus from the Ministry of Education Singapore, the Science Matters curriculum is designed to help students discover scientific knowledge through real-life contexts. The full-color glossy textbook pages feature visuals and infographics that provide an engaging and exciting way to learn new facts. Links explicitly connect concepts, and theme pages highlight the interconnectivity of various concepts. Textbook chapters begin with a real-life context and concrete examples that provide opportunities for students to see how they can apply science to their own lives. Context-based questions, critical thinking questions, and think and explore questions require students to extend their knowledge of the concept to a broader level of application. Chapters conclude with review questions. With a focus on getting students to actually think about concepts rather than repeating concepts from the material, this series will provide plenty of opportunities for discussion between parents and children. Volume B splits chapters between the themes Systems and Interactions. 8th-grade students will learn about transport systems in organisms, the human sexual reproductive system, electrical systems, forces, energy and work, sound, heat and matter, chemical changes, ecosystems, and more. The book contains 228 pages, indexed, in softcover. It is designed for Grade 8 students and is in its 2nd Edition.
