Science H — Apologia General Science with the Sonlight-exclusive Schedule Plus — 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.
Topics include a brief history of science; the scientific method; how to 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); the energy cycle; and the human body and its primary systems. Includes subjects and examples of particular interest and concern to evangelical Christians.
Easy to read with a personal tone, this program includes hands-on experiments, student exercises, photos, illustrations, tests, and detailed solutions.
You’ll find audio pronunciations for unique vocabulary words in the course plus video clips and graphic demonstrations. Dr. Wile shows you, with video examples, what you should be looking for and how you will look for it; he explains out loud—with animated graphics—some of the more difficult concepts and processes; and he presents live footage of what you are studying. Very helpful!
Includes the unique items that you need to perform the experiments.
