things can’t through these well-designed tests that reinforce and evaluate his
learning. The test book is correlated with the texts Science: Matter and Energy (2012), Science: Matter and Energy

Quizzes, and Science: Matter and
Energy Teacher Edition, which includes the curriculum/lesson plans. Answers
and grading guidance are sold separately in Science:
Matter and Energy Test Key. Grade 9.

mathematics is the language of science, many tests include an application
section of math problems corresponding to the problems demonstrated and
practiced in the text. Your teen will see the necessity of both math skills and
scientific knowledge as they are applied to practical life situations.
questions take your teen’s thinking skills to a higher level as he must explain
the hows and whys of science. They also open his eyes to note God’s design in
the physical world and to consider how things of man’s design work. Noting
others’ creativity may lead to his own!
