Exploring the World of Mathematics
Math doesn’t have to be difficult. In Exploring the World of Math, John Tiner shows that it can be fun. Students of different ages and skill levels can use this fascinating book.
Intended as a supplement to a homeschool curriculum, it’s more than just a math book. Tracing the history of mathematics principles and theory, it includes stories and tips showing math to be practical for everyday use. It also uses many examples of mathematics from the Bible and explains the timekeeping methods used in biblical times.
You can use Exploring the World of Mathematics as a break from the regular math routine, and your student will still be doing math!
Exploring the World of Mathematics includes:
- Basic mathematical principles including some simple algebra, geometry, and scientific math,
- Egyptian and Greek contributions to mathematics
- Math involving time, the seasons, and measurement
- Fun activities illustrating mathematical principles
- Chapter tests (answers included in back)
- Over 150 illustrations and diagrams.
Exploring the World of Physics
Exploring the World of Physics supplement explains physics in remarkably clear detail. Complemented with black-and-white illustrations, the book uses ordinary speech to explain the concepts of physics. The author’s goal is to “write at a 6th-grade level, but explain the concepts so that a motivated 4th grader can understand the material.”
Physics equations and formulas are kept to a minimum. The author starts with the simple and goes on to the complex, and the development is somewhat historical in nature but is intended to be an introductory book for beginning physics students. Material of a more difficult nature is found in sidebars entitled “For More Study.”
Exploring the World of Biology
In Exploring the World of Biology, read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God’s amazing creation. Look at life from the smallest proteins and spores to the complex life systems of humans and animals.
Exploring the World of Chemistry
“With a flair for telling biographical sketches of famous scientists, Tiner also provides students with a solid foundation for understanding the crucial purposes of chemistry with no evolutionary underlayings. Each chapter in Exploring the World of Chemistry ends with study questions and the answers, in the back of the book, can easily be removed by teacher or parent.
Exploring the World Around You
Exploring the World Around You “explores the world through its seven biomes: desert, grassland, tropical rainforest, deciduous forest, taiga, tundra, and chaparral. In this book, you will learn about the environment as you are reminded that Christians are to be stewards of the earth.
Exploring The World of Astronomy
From the back cover of The World of Astronomy:
From the rugged surface of the moon to the distant and mysterious constellations, this book provides you an exciting, educational, and edifying tour! Learn about a blue moon, the 400-year storm on Jupiter, and what is meant by “the zone of life.” Discussion ideas, questions, and research opportunities help expand this great resource on observational astronomy into an unforgettable educational resource!
Exploring Planet Earth
Tiner has written a textbook for 5th grade to junior high level, similar in style to public school texts, but with a creationism perspective of history. With definitions of terms and identification of famous explorers, scientists, etc., Exploring Planet Earth gives students an excellent initial knowledge of people and places, encouraging them to continue their studies in depth.
It is supplemented with illustrations and photographs. By bringing to life the explorations of people like Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus, the author gives students the opportunity to read history that hasn’t been altered or erased altogether.
