Math and Science–DVD review



Science and Math.com has some neat products I have reviewed a math product for them previously and this time I was lucky enough to get to review one of their science videos. 

Amazing Science Volume 1 comes with 2 DVD’s featuring 23 experiments. Each experiment uses easy to find items.  Check out Walking by the Way for a printable supply list!  Also as the instructor in the video, Jason has advanced degrees in Engineering and Physics, and he worked as a rocket scientist for NASA.  He has a passion for teaching science and math.  He explains the why behind each amazing experiment in easy to understand turns.  Each of the experiments on the video had our mouths dropping in amazement.  And when we went to try our experiments on our own, they all worked.  We did have a little trouble with the egg in the bottle one, but we were using too small of a bottle and that was easily fixed with a bigger bottle and then it worked.


The very first experiment we tried was about surface tension and it amazed us!

P1010575We all sat down at the table with our plates.

We dipped our first Q-tip.


Then it got really fun!


  It worked, it really worked, and we knew why.

We love quick fun experiments like this, and knowing the why behind them is great. 

One way I have began to use this now is that when my children are feeling unmotivated to get going on our day, I pop in this DVD and set it on an experiment that I have all the supplies for and we watch the quick (5-15 min.) segment and then go conduct the experiment ourselves.  Each time when we have gotten done with the experiment their brains are awake and ready to face the day.  It has been a great for us.

Check out these sample videos of the experiments for free!

You can have all this too for $19.95 you will get the complete volume 1
