Conceptual Academy Textbooks
SUPPLEMENT DIGITAL CURRICULUM.
Designed by Paul Hewitt, John Suchocki and Jennifer Yeh, Conceptual Academy brings high school science programs to students in a unique and engaging way. In PocketLab Notebook Pro, a comprehensive library of videos provides the context students need to understand the text-based content and builds a strong conceptual foundation. Students are easily able to make connections between the concepts of physics, chemistry and biology and their everyday world.
Conceptual Academy textbooks are an optional add-on to the interactive, digital version available in Notebook Pro. Use the hard copies to aid with lesson planning or as an additional learning format for students.
