Description
  • Author: Apologia Educational Ministries

A wonderful, introduction to science in general and some of the specific sciences in particular, designed from the ground up for use by homeschoolers. Topics include a brief history of science; the scientific method; how to analyze and interpret experiments; the distinction between science, applied science, and technology; archeology, geology and paleontology; uniformitarianism vs. catastrophism; genetics (DNA and life); cells; classification (the five-kingdom system: monera, protista, fungi, plantae, and animalia); the energy cycle; and, covering well over a third of the book: the human body and its primary systems: digestive, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, urinary, and nervous.

Throughout, Dr. Wile includes subjects and illustrative examples that will be of particular interest and concern to evangelical Christians. Put another way, he does nothing to hide his Christian viewpoint and, indeed, he seeks to use the scientific evidence before him to advance a student's faith in the Bible and a Christian worldview.

Since the young-earth/old-earth debate is of particular concern to many of our customers, let me state here that, though Dr. Wile is open about what he believes (he believes in a young earth), his discussions that impinge on the subject are-and I will say this without reservation-the most even-handed and gracious I have seen. Dr. Wile presents the data, the reasons why scientists interpret the data differently (on both sides of the argument), and then urges students to evaluate the data honestly for themselves.

The course includes lots of hands-on experiments. The text is written in a conversational and personal tone, making it easy to read and understand. It contains student exercises (with detailed solutions), experiments, and tests (with detailed solutions). Comes in two volumes: a 434-page, oversized hardbound "student text," printed on glossy stock, including lots of color photos and illustrations; and a "solutions and tests" manual. Price includes both volumes and free curricular support from the author.
