Science Scope provides lists of skills, topics, and concepts that are part of most science curricula. It can be used:

As a checklist.

This allows the student to use a wide variety of materials to learn about science instead of a program designed by only one company for use in kindergarten through high school.

Teachers and parents can also be sure a depth of understanding is achieved, rather than simply exposure to a topic. Older students can use this book to help them recognize what they should understand and retain (checking off items themselves) whether using a text book or several books and resources.

As an overview of the progression of a topic from simple concepts to the more complicated.

Even if a topic is not introduced until a student is eleven or twelve, for example, it may be helpful to introduce it using ideas from the easier level. This guide includes material used in high school courses for the college-bound student, which may prove too complex for some students. In that case, teachers and parents have the option of taking the student as far as he is able in any topic, while making certain that basic concepts are understood.

As a reference for age-level expectations.

Find out how much can be expected at any age. Keep children challenged, but not beyond their ability to meet that challenge. Topics are divided according to the following key:
