Book Title: Exploring Creation with Biology
Publisher: Apologia Educational Ministries
Author: Dr. Jay L. Wile
This course is designed to be the student's first high school science course. Typically, we recommend that the student take this course during the same year that he or she is taking Algebra 1. Exploring Creation with Biology is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. With a strong emphasis on the vocabulary of biology, the course 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. 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.) Anatomy is such a detailed subject that it merits an entire course. The second edition of the includes more color and higher-quality illustrations, access to additional online resources for more advanced learners, and an appendix of review questions covering the entire course. This is a two-volume set.
The high-quality hardcover student text contains all student material, study questions, laboratory exercises, and module study guides with color photos and illustrations. The softcover solutions-and-tests manual contains answers to module study guides, tests, and test solutions. A booklet containing an extra set of tests is shrink-wrapped with the manual.
