Science H — Apologia General Science 3rd edition provides a wonderful overview of the entire range of scientific inquiry and a superb introduction to the world of science you will explore in years to come. Assuming you have already used four or five years' worth of Sonlight science, however, feel free to use Physical Science. There are plenty of additional courses to come!
Designed for use by homeschoolers.
A wonderful, introduction to science in general and some of the specific sciences in particular. Topics include a brief history of science; the scientific method; how to analyze and interpret experiments; the distinction between science, applied science, and technology; astronomy; geology and paleontology; meteorology and oceanography; chemistry; general physics; genetics (DNA and life); cells; classification (the five kingdom system); marine life; and ecology.
Throughout this course, subjects and illustrative examples are included that will be of particular interest and concern to evangelical Christians. Put another way, the authors do nothing to hide their Christian viewpoint and, indeed, seek to use the scientific evidence to advance a student's faith in the Bible and a Christian worldview.
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). The textbook is a 434-page, oversized hardbound "student text," printed on glossy stock, including lots of color photos and illustrations. The Solutions and Test Manual includes answers to Study Guide questions, test, and test solutions. The Student Notebook is a daily guide for the student completing the course. Advanced material and additional web-based material is provided by the publisher.
Includes the unique items that you need to perform the experiments and activities.
