Science Workbooks

Hello fellow science teachers and learners,

I'm looking for a science workbook and I thought this community might have some suggestions.  

I'm currently teaching a class to prepare HSE students for the science portion of their HSE exam (which is the TASC in my state).  I'm looking for a workbook that I could suggest to my students to use at home for extra practice, or that I could use in class for practice questions, vocabulary, readings, etc.  Students always ask for this type of thing, and since the retirement of the old GED, I've been at a loss for suggestions.

Donna retiring

Good morning, Career Pathways colleagues!  I am at a turning point in my life due to the death of my husband of 50 years on October 1, and I have decided to officially retire as the Subject Matter Expert of the Career Pathways group.  I plan to stay a member of the group, as I want to stay in contact with the field, so I'm not going away, but will no longer be responsible for welcoming new members and planning activities for the group.  There are many of you who already take the time to share information and ask questions, and hopefully there will be more of you who will take those initiati

Assessing with the CCRS

2014 Math Challenges

Math and Numeracy Learning Colleagues,

I would like to start a discussion here about challenges in teaching mathematics that you have encountered in adult basic education.  My main reason to do this is that I believe  each of us struggle with some area of mathematics and I know we can support and learn from each other.  We haven't had this type of discussion before but I hope that those of you who are silent will find a moment to share from your valuable experiences.
