Description of Work

OER can be created to fulfill needs or gaps that exist in education. One example of this is that most science textbooks are focused on the science that occurs in the contentment, not the peninsula. This book was created as a supplementary text designed to assist students with their understanding of science as it occurs in Florida. The book covers six sections of science: Earth Science, Oceanography, Weather/Climate, Biology (Biomes, Plants, and Animals), Chemistry and Physics presenting the local science that is often not in their regular textbooks. In total the book has 38 topic sections that are independently readable and will inform students on that aspect of science is it occurs in Florida. Students use the text digitally, download it, read it online, or print out any portions or the whole book as needed or desired. This text is accompanied by more than 100 color photographs and graphics illustrating science as it applies to or is found in Florida. Also included with most sections are links to online interactive resources, simulations, and more to allow students to further their exploration, visualization, and experimentation.
