The Schools Council Integrated Science Project (SCISP) topic books had different uses. Sometimes they were intended to be read entirely at home as background books; sometimes they were needed for reference in lessons; and occasionally they were required by the teacher in order to explain some of the patterns. The project team planned to publish 20 topic books for the three parts of the sample scheme.

Topic books for Patterns, part one
The importance of patterns
Rocks and minerals
Length and its measurement
Patterns of reproduction, development and growth
Population patterns
Chemical formulae and equations
The diversity of life
Science and decision making

Topic books for Patterns, part two
Machines and engines
Sound: its uses and misuses
Electrification of British Rail
Electromagnetic radiation
Weather patterns

Topic books for Patterns, part three
Darwin and evolution
Human behaviour
Friction
Earth patterns
Man and urban environment
Human groups
