Exploring Creation With Biology 2nd Edition is a high school, college preparatory multimedia biology course. It is not a supplement. It is a FULL COURSE! It runs in Internet Explorer, which makes it very easy to use. The course looks just like a website, which makes it very familiar to most students. There is a navigation frame to the left which allows you to choose any module and any section of the course. The content of that portion of the course will then appear on the right-hand frame. There are animations and videos throughout the course, which make the material fun and interesting. Technical words are also pronounced for the student. There are hands-on experiments throughout the CD so that the student can have a true laboratory-based biology course. You can purchase a kit of materials so that these experiments can be done either at home or in a school setting. There are study guides and tests for every module in the course, and the answers are provided as well. Located on a separate CD that is included with the course, these materials can be printed out so that the student can use them and the parent/teacher can grade them.
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.
We do recommend that the student also have the Notebooking Journal.
