Student's Book

The student’s book engages learners through relevant examples and provide a sense of immersion through videos, animations, and interactives to better their understanding in Science. Extensive support and scaffolding are provided to relate concepts across topics and foster a deeper understanding of concepts.


Comes with thought-provoking questions to bridge the gap between their current knowledge or assumptions, and the concepts. 


Presents practical experiments to test the concepts and verify that these concepts are true. This practical work reinforces the concepts learned by making them concrete and easy to grasp in real life.


Enrichment feature provides interesting nuggets of information that help learners connect with real-life examples and deepen understanding.

Theory Workbook

The Theory Workbook provides meaningful reinforcement of concepts covered in the Student’s Book. Each chapter contains a journaling feature to encourage self-reflection, exam-style questions to build exam readiness and comes with formative questions to assess topical understanding.


Formative questions are scaffolded for subject literacy, starting from multiple-choice questions, word jumbles and crosswords, and progressing to short-answer and structured questions.  


Comes with S.T.E.A.M project that offers the opportunity for group work to encourage critical thinking and inquiry-based knowledge building. 


A mix of questions extracted from Cambridge International’s past papers and author-originated questions in exam-style for learners to practice and build confidence.’

Practical Workbook

The workbook integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.  It builds on subject literacy and exam-readiness in learners through activities, experimental and practical work.


Laboratory-based practical that supplements the student’s book through observations or manipulations of real-life objects or materials.


Fun group STEAM project linking to real-world investigation to build on 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and more.


Comes with tips on good laboratory practice and safety to help students to develop good laboratory habits.

Teacher’s Guide

The teacher’s guide is developed with flexibility and convenience in mind to support both new and experienced educators in delivering quality and engaging lessons. It comes with lesson plans, answer keys, PowerPoint Slides and a Question Bank for the Student’s Book, Theory Workbook and Practical Workbook.


Presenting concepts in a variety of media and forms helps students grasp concepts and useful for school and home-based learning.


Lesson plans are based on Cambridge Assessment International Education’s recommended 130 guided learning hours that are easy to use. 


Scheme of work are editable for teacher to effectively plan lessons according to the amount of time allocated to the subject.
