This high school biology course is designed to be the homeschool student's first high school science class and is college-prep. Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, is a foundational course that covers everything students need to prepare successfully for a college-level biology course. The updated edition includes more in-depth explanations of certain concepts and new graphics to help students understand the life sciences.

In this course, your student will:

  • See the evidence of God’s creation as they learn scientific principles
  • Conduct experiments in a methodical way that prepares them not just for future classes, but for life
  • Take personal notes, conduct and record experiments, and be able to interpret results
  • Develop skills to think through and beyond the textbook materials, and be able to create their own experiments from concept to interpretation of results
  • Further develop skills in their own learning style and how they best process, record, study, and retain information learned
  • Be able to hold a logical discussion on God and science based on facts and beliefs

This revised edition offers:

  • Updated content to present the most current science
  • A reorganized structure of the information, which helps students logically progress through their biological studies
  • Experiments which have been updated or replaced, and the addition of new experiments
  • New illustrations and infographics that help students break down and visually digest difficult concepts, in addition to updated images and illustrations
  • New content, including a new section on photosynthesis and a new section on diseases
  • An overhaul of the section on genetics, including more information on DNA
