Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc. presents 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! This course is designed to be the student's first high school science course. Exploring Creation With Biology is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides 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. Please note that this course does not contain a discussion of human anatomy and physiology. Most college biology professors do not consider human anatomy and physiology to be a part of a solid, college prep biology course. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course. The student text contains all student material, on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides. Color illustrations and diagrams. For 9th Grade students. Review This is a phenomenal science book! . . . The information contained in this book is in depth and thorough. . . . Even though there is a ton of information; it is not monotonous or drab. My daughter stayed interested while learning and I was impressed with the accuracy of the language used. --Happily HomeschoolingExploring Creation with Biology is the best biology textbook I have ever seen. With a Bachelors degree in nursing, I have taken my fair share of biology classes and read numerous science textbooks at the high school and college level. I am impressed with the thorough coverage . . . Exploring Creation with Biology is a another beautiful book! You could spend hours just looking at the pictures, reading the charts, and looking at the diagrams. --Take Root and WriteThis is an excellent college-preparatory course for high school . . . The microscopic slides are wonderful quality, and are a great teaching tool with the course. The dissections are fun, easy, and interesting. The textbook reads easily. The author has a wonderful writing style that keeps the student interested. --Curriculum Choice About the Author Jay Wile fell in love with chemistry when his parents bought him his first chemistry set. Many stink bombs and a few explosions later, he was hooked! He attended the University of Rochester to study chemistry and, while there, became fascinated with nuclear chemistry, eventually earning a PhD in that field. For several years, he did research under the auspices of the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation while serving as an assistant professor of chemistry. Dr. Wile has won many awards for excellence in teaching and research. In addition, he has authored or co-authored nine books.
