This course is designed to be the student’s first high school science course and is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course.
Typically it is recommended that the student take this course during the same year that he or she is taking Algebra 1. The text for the course is written in conversational style, making it easy to read and understand. It contains student exercises (with detailed solutions), experiments to be done in the home and tests. This course is taught wholly from a creationist viewpoint with emphasis on the incredible design features apparent throughout God's creation.
A Biology Notebooking Journal is available to help students as they work through the program. Students find this incredibly helpful and we would strongly recommend purchasing this for your student. It provides a schedule for working through the program and give a provides a more structured approach to the course. This is not a required item but it seems to ensure greater success when students use it.
