ABOUT THE ANNOTATIONS IN "LIFE SCIENCE ——CORE MATERIALS"
Curriculum materials are arranged alphabetically by title in each category (Core Materials, Supplementary Units, and Science Activity Books) in chapters 1 through 5 of this guide.
Each curriculum annotation has a two-part entry number: the chapter number is given before the period; the number after the period locates the entry within that chapter. For example, the first entry number in chapter 1 is 1.1; the second entry in chapter 2 is 2.2; and so on.
The entry numbers within each curriculum chapter run consecutively through Core Materials, Supplementary Units, and Science Activity Books.
