Exploring Creation with Biology
by Apologia - Grade 9
This high school biology course is designed to be your high school student's first science course. As a college-prep high school biology course, it will set the stage for success in their homeschool years in high school, prepare them for college level courses, and give them an understanding of the basic biological world that surrounds them each day of their lives so that they can appreciate the real-world relevance of scientific inquiry. We believe that students' educations should prepare them for life, not just an academic year.
Providing a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology, this award-winning, homeschool, high school biology covers:
- A heavy emphasis on the vocabulary of biology so that students are properly prepared to have scientific discussions
- A strong background in the scientific method so that students are trained for laboratory sciences in other high school science courses, as well as university studies
- Labs that cover experimentation, field studies, microscopy, and dissection
- Introduction to classification, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, ecosystems, and much more
