This course is designed to be a student’s first systematic introduction to the sciences. Although it can be used for eighth grade (especially if the student has recently left the public schools), it is typically used best in the seventh grade. The course covers such topics as the scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, paleontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Its scope, therefore, is quite wide. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household items.
This course is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology. Thus, we generally recommend it as an 8th grade course. However, your student can also use it for their 9th grade course work. The text discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton’s Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. The author especially concentrates on the myths generated by the hysterical environmentalist movement. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household chemicals and supplies. It is an excellent course for preparing the student to take a college-prep high school science curriculum.
Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. is proud to present the second edition of its Exploring Creation With Biology course. The first edition has been used by thousands of students in all 50 states and 13 other countries. Now, this award-winning biology course is even better! PLEASE NOTE: Because of the differences between the first and second editions, students in a group setting cannot use both. They must all have the same edition.
Chemistry is not just elements on a chart or dots around a symbol. Chemistry is the substance of life on Earth. Exploring Creation with Chemistry 3rd edition introduces the student to the concepts of chemistry and provides the strong foundation necessary to further understand many of the other sciences including biology, physics, astronomy, and countless others. Exploring Creation with Chemistry 3rd edition will bring students one step closer to understanding their surroundings while strengthening their faith that the Creator has designed a magnificent and purposeful world. The material covered in this text lay the ground work for college level classes and will provide the student with the confidence needed to advance to more in-depth study and research.
Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. is pleased to present the second edition of its Exploring Creation With Physics course. The first edition, originally published in 1996, was the second science course written by Dr. Wile. Now, this award-winning physics course is even better!
This is our advanced biology course. Combined with Exploring Creation With Biology , it gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. In other words, these two courses together cover the entire "advanced placement" (AP) curriculum. In order to take this course, the student MUST have completed a first-year biology course AND a first-year chemistry course. It covers both the anatomy and the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail.
Water covers 72% of our planet and makes up close to 99% of the living space on Earth. However, we know more about the surface of Mars than we know about the ocean floor. Dive into Exploring Creation with Marine Biology and discover the living waters that God has placed all around us. Journey to the farthest depths of the ocean to explore life that exists in the most unlikely places. Learn how the ocean ecology is essential to our existence. Creation exists on every part of our planet. There is not one space that our Creator has not touched. Even the ocean floor is intelligently designed in order to support life.
Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. is proud to present the second edition of its Advanced Chemistry in Creation. When taken after Exploring Creation with Chemistry, the two courses combine to cover everything that is normally covered in a first-year university chemistry course. Now, this award-winning course is even better!
In order to take this course, a student must have already completed a high school physics course, preferably Exploring Creation With Physics. When added to that first-year course, this course "fills in the gaps" and gives the student the equivalent of one year of university-level physics. You may have heard this kind of course called an "Advanced Placement" or "AP" course. In addition to a first-year physics course, the student must have also completed a trigonometry course in order to take Advanced Physics in Creation. The course provides detailed descriptions of kinematics, dynamics, rotational motion, gravity, oscillations, waves, optics, thermal physics, electrical forces, electrical potential, DC circuits, magnetic forces, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. The student is also given an introduction to the fascinating topics of special relativity and general relativity.
