Apologia’s homeschool biology course for high school is part of Apologia’s award-winning Exploring Creation Series. With a strong emphasis on vocabulary and experiments, Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, is a foundational course that covers everything students need to prepare successfully for a college-level biology course.
This softcover student textbook, Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, is designed to be the student’s first high school science course. It is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology.
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
Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, softcover student textbook covers everything students need to prepare for a college-level biology course. The materials are updated with deeper explanations of certain concepts, and new graphics help students understand the life sciences.
