As scientific studies advance farther out into the universe as well as deeper into the microscopic world, scientists continue to ask, “What is life?” Biology is the study of life, and this 3rd edition of Exploring Creation with Biology teaches not only the science of how we begin to answer the bigger questions defining life, but also includes meaningful discussions on Creation and Creator.
This updated high school biology course was redesigned to help students see and understand the beauty of life that surrounds us. Full-page infographics were created to help students grasp the concepts discussed in the text and go beyond simple illustrations.
As a university-prep high school biology course, it will set the stage for success in homeschooled high school years, prepare students for university 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.
Opening with the studies of the process of science, students learn about observations and inferences, hypotheses, experiments, and scientific theories and laws. They are taught to see the limitations of science and learn about the tools used in biological studies.
In their studies of life, students will delve into the chemistry of life from atoms to the chemical structures that make life, as we know it, possible. They will explore the ecology that surrounds life as they investigate ecosystems, biomes, populations, and communities.
An in-depth study of cell structure and function, cellular energy, DNA, proteins, and cell cycles will help students comprehend heartier materials as they advance to learn about genetics—inheritance, disorders, and technology, as well as the role of genetics in evolution.
Students will also learn about prokaryotes, viruses, protists, and fungi. They will delve deep into the fascinating world of plants and animals. And all of their learned knowledge will be backed by hands-on experimentation that takes their book knowledge and applies it to concepts that they can comprehend.
Apologia believes that students’ educations should prepare them for life, not just an academic year. This creation-based science course will create the strong foundation students can rely upon as they grow in their awe and wonder of our world.
At the completion of this course, students will be able to understand the vocabulary of biology so that they can engage in true scientific discourse. Their strong background in the scientific method regarding experimentation, field studies, microscopy, and dissection will also allow them to be well equipped to analyze data that they will encounter throughout their lifetimes.
It is highly recommended that the Solutions and Test manual and Student Notebook are also purchased for a complete learning experience.
