This science curriculum is designed especially for teaching science at home. Its variety-filled structure is best described as a balance between the classical method and the Charlotte Mason approach. In contrast with a single textbook approach, the variety of study materials and activities will encourage more interest in science and guide children into discovery of the complexity, order, and wonder of God’s design.

    Noeo Physics works well with our Charlotte Mason homeschool sytle. Sometimes we do more writing than others. It’s nice to have the choice. My 12yo loves how there’s so many experiments. SHe’s very hands-on and really likes to do science, not just learn it. The teacher’s guide helps me make sure I know what I need to know.

    I’ve used all three NOEO programs–Biology, Chemistry, and Physics–with my kids. Originally, I picked it because I wanted a hands-on program that I could manage and understand. I love the books that they use and the projects included. It is fun, educational, and very doable on a daily/weekly basis. I would definitely recommend ordering the kit of experiments because it makes the whole experience much easier to plan for.

    Chemestry 1 is my favorite curriculum ever. I wasn’t expecting so many experiments – which was scary because I’m not a science person. The Chem set gives you the more complicated experiments, but you also get a book with simple experiments that adds a lot of fun. We definitely didn’t like Noeo’s Biology book, though.

    I really liked Noeo’s Chemistry 1, but I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I was with Biology 1. I’m not a science person, so I was really surprised with how much fun we had with the chemistry experiements. But now I’m not liking science so much, anymore after trying to use their Biology. Biology didn’t have the same kinds of hands-on activities. It was just too much reading for us.

    This program is beautifully put together, but it did not work for my son. This would be a wonderful program for a student with strong reading/writing skills and an inquisitive nature. I really liked the books used and the optional internet links. The student gets amny opportunities to “do” science. As a teacher it was great to have the entire lesson plan provided. Unfortunately, my son’s writing skills were not developed enough to handle this program without frustration.
