I love this program. This is real science from an actual scientist, written in a way that is accessible to students. She doesn’t talk down to the student, and the material is fairly advanced. To keep using Chapter 11 as an example, the student is introduced to the concept of static electricity (the common term) and electrostatic charge (the physics term). They learn about electric charges in general, and then about the Van de Graaff Generator. There is some math in section 11.4 as they learn about electric force and Coulomb’s Law. They move on to learn about electric fields, including more math concepts. Electric Potential Energy and then Electrostatic Induction round out the chapter.”
