Mastering the Middle School TAKS in Science uses clear, insightful explanations and an interactive format to help students prepare for the Middle School TAKS in Science. This test assesses student mastery of three years of science. The book helps students recall student expectations from sixth, seventh and eighth grade science. An introductory unit explores the basic types of questions on the TAKS - comprehension, analysis, and inference. Students learn a unique approach for answering each type of question. Students learn to Examine the question, Recall what they know, and Answer the question. Students also review how to analyze scientific information in graphs, tables, diagrams, flow charts, and maps. The book presents a complete refresher course of all the content and skills tested, covering every TEKS assessed.

Students Preview What They Will Learn. Each unit begins with a Unit Opener, focusing student attention on what they will learn. Each chapter begins with a Major Ideas section, previewing the most important concepts.

Students Comprehend and Assimilate What They Need to Know. Students review all the tested student expectations, including the topics in the Highlights section of the TEA Information Booklet, such as measuring liquids, contour maps, Punnett squares, DNA, common compounds, energy transfer, and tectonic plates. An abundance of diagrams and illustrations helps students visualize as they learn.

Students Reinforce and Apply What They Have Learned. Students continually interact with what they read through Applying What You Have Learned activities. These exercises ask students to describe, explain, or analyze information and provide them with an opportunity to think about what they have read. Study Cards are found at the end of each chapter, which students are encouraged to duplicate and collect. These cards reinforce the major ideas of the chapter. Each unit concludes with a Checklist of Objectives, listing the appropriate TEKS in that unit, providing students with an opportunity to self-monitor their learning.

Students Practice What They Have Learned. Each chapter ends with a series of TAKS-style questions. Each question is identified by its TAKS Objective and student expectation. A final unit provides a complete practice test, mirroring the distribution of questions and difficulty level of the Middle School TAKS in Science.
