Apologia High School Biology

Course reviews will be shown here


Apologia's "Exploring Creation with Biology" (2nd Edition) is designed to be a college prep science course for students in the 9th through 12th grades. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it will provide the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation. Students will get a broad overview of God's creation and should come away in awe of God's mighty power. Students who have taken or are currently taking Algebra 1 are ready for this course. This is a lab science course and will include microscope use and dissections.

Because this is a college preparatory high school class:

1.  All assignments are submitted on-line and will be graded. A grade of "I" or Incomplete will be given if student completes less than 90% of assignments. 

2.  Students should expect to spend 120 hours on this class - this means 60 hours per semester or about 4 hours per week of co-op.  Students may wish to work slowly over the week or complete assignments all at one time for the week. 

3.  Completion of homework, in class labs at co-op for two semesters and tests will constitute enough content to grant a student 1 credit/Carnegie unit. 

4. Because this is not only a college preparatory class but also a homeschool class, homework, labs and tests will be accepted up to 2 weeks late.  However, anything turned in over 2 weeks late will not be graded and will not be counted as a complete assignment for this class.

5. Grading: 100-90 = A

                     89-80 = B

                     79-70 = C

                     69-60 = D

                     Below 60% = F
