This is the second edition of Apologia's 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 will get even better!
This course is designed to be the student’s first high school science course and 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. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course.
All the lab supplies needed (except for iodine and methylene blue)are available from us at Heppner's Legacy. Call for details and prices.
We have found that methylene blue can be a challenge to find. It is used in 2 experiments to stain microscope slide samples. We have found a great homemade solution. Mix 2 drops red food coloring, 2 drops blue food coloring, 2 drops vinegar, and 5 drops water. Use this in place of methylene blue.
