The interest-based curriculum materials are designed to correlate the subjects of English, math, science, and home economics and infuse academic skills into the world of work. The House Care Science curriculum guide is divided into five units: (1) measurement, (2) household chemistry, (3) household electricity, (4) household machines, and (5) heat, light, and sound. Each unit is organized around objectives, experiments, evaluative material (unit exams), instructional materials, and references. The unit on measurement applies the metric system to density and specific gravity problems. The household chemistry unit activities deal with the three states of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. Principles of electricity are stressed in both the household electricity and household machines units, while the final unit on heat, light, and sound applies principles and theories relating to the use of energy in the home.
