Product Description:

Required for Apologia's 2nd edition Human Body course, this anatomy coloring book provides an innovative way to reinforce human anatomy for any study of the human body. Although designed for high school, middle school students may also benefit from this one. Each spread offers a clear and precise illustration with concise textual information as well as space for labeling the illustration. Topics included are anatomical position and terms, planes of the body, cells/tissues, skeletal system, joints, nervous system, sense organs, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, male and female reproductive systems and fetal development. A neat feature about this coloring book is the inclusion of 96 tear-out muscle flashcards for memorization. On the flip side, a drawback is that the publisher elected to place the answers to the diagrams at the bottom of the same page - although my children may be the only ones who would be tempted to take the easy way out when labeling the diagrams! I would consider covering up the answers to encourage them to research the correct answers. 335 pages plus flashcards, pb. ~ Deanne

Category Description for Apologia Science:

Apologia Science courses are written from a Biblical worldview with the homeschool in mind. At the elementary level, courses follow a Charlotte Mason-inspired methodology, with lessons organized around narration, notebooking exercises and hands-on activities or projects. Children at different ages can use these together, learning at their own level. Each course is designed to be teacher-student interactive, so teacher involvement is fairly high at this level. At the junior high and high school levels, science courses are more traditional in nature, with the textbook written to the student. Teacher involvement time at this level is much less than at the elementary level. Textbooks contain student reading, lab instructions, "On Your Own" questions and Study Guide questions. A Solutions Manual provides the answers to these and the test questions. Lab kits are available separately for both the elementary and upper-level science courses which include most of the harder to find items you will need.




Category Description for Human Body - 2nd Edition:

Newly revised and co-authored by Marilyn Shannon and Rachael Yunis, this anatomy and physiology course continues the exceptional teaching we have come to expect from Apologia. Solidly college-prep, this course combined with the Exploring Creation with Biology, is equivalent to one full year of college Biology and will familiarize students with AP or CLEP exam content. Prerequisites to this academically rigorous course are one year of high school Biology and one year of high school Chemistry.

The hardcover student text is comprised of sixteen modules (chapters). Each module is designed to be completed within 2 weeks, meaning the course could be completed in 32 weeks; however, you may want to allow extra time to complete some modules. The built-in flexibility of the program allows for students who need more time to assimilate the teaching to still complete it within one school year.

The first module provides an organizational overview of the human body and homeostasis, as well as a general review of concepts such as cell structure, protein synthesis, and cellular mitosis. Subsequent modules study histology (study of tissues), integumentary and skeletal systems, skeletal system histology and movement, muscular system histology and physiology, skeletal muscle system, nervous system, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, digestive system, respiratory system, urinary system and the reproductive system. Featured throughout each module are "On Your Own" study questions to help students assess comprehension of the subject matter. Each module contains a comprehensive Study Guide to prepare students for module tests. Sprinkled throughout the 2nd edition are "Think about This" and "Heart of the Matter" segments to direct student focus to familiar experiences and Christian worldview/scripture verses (NIV and NLT). An additional benefit of the Apologia courses is the experiments, which have three types in this course: microscopic labs, dissection labs and household labs. References to coloring exercises from the Kaplan Anatomy Coloring Book (#000258) are incorporated (although the coloring book is now 6th edition and page numbers will be off by two).

The Solutions and Tests booklet contains anywhere from 7 to 20 test questions for each module, answers to the test questions, and solutions to the Study Guide questions. Tests come in a separate booklet and are perforated for easy removal.

There are a few differences between the 1st and 2nd editions. In the 2nd edition, you will find a Welcome Letter which incorporates Scripture references. The initial chapters in the 2nd edition appear less "chatty" than the 1st edition text. The textual information is similar (and much is the same) although a few sections have been expanded and clarified. Many of the "On Your Own," Study Guide and Test questions are the same. A negligible number of questions have been reworded. The 2nd edition also contains a link to a website with web-based support materials arranged by module (password included). Lab experiments appear to be mostly the same; although changes have been made in the Fetal Pig Dissection. While the 1st edition listed several websites and books as resources to walk the student through the dissection, the 2nd edition provides only six general overview steps with no additional support resources listed. For a more thorough dissection experience, we would recommend supplementing with the Photo Manual Dissection Guide: Fetal Pig (#28523) or How to Dissect (#45220). Most of the changes to the 2nd edition are found in the formatting, including text color and font type. Lab experiments are now in a contemporary font overlaid on graph paper. Other format changes include more colorful fonts and some improved graphics. Colored Tabs at the side of each page reflect the current module.

Whether you elect to use the 1st or 2nd edition of Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, your student will experience an excellent, homeschool-friendly Anatomy and Physiology course that will prepare him or her for college success. Speaking from experience, my daughter completed this course during her high school at home and graduated with her Bachelors degree in nursing four years later. She unwaveringly affirms her appreciation for the Apologia science courses in giving her success at the college level. ~ Deanne




Category Description for Apologia Junior / Senior High Science:

Written specifically for use in a homeschool environment, these biblically-centered courses by Dr. Jay Wile take a lot of pressure off the parent teaching the course. Each course consists of a high-quality hardcover student text and a paperback solution manual. The student text includes all the student reading, instructions for labs, "On Your Own" exercises, and fifteen to twenty "Study Guide" questions at the end of each chapter. Unlike many upper-level science texts, we have found these to be extremely readable! The text has a conversational tone, and concepts are explained in an easy-to-understand way. Plenty of helpful diagrams and pictures are included which add interest and break up the text. Answers to the "On Your Own" exercises are also included with discussion at the end of each chapter. The labs are designed to be done easily, and most require only household items to complete; unlike high school courses, like Bob Jones which require investing in some lab equipment and chemicals to complete the labs. Where a microscope or dissecting materials are required, a reasonably-priced complete kit of materials is available, for ease in collecting the items.

The Solution Manual contains test questions for each chapter, answers to the test questions and solutions to the "Study Guide" questions. For some courses, a separate Perforated Tests booklet is available; please note that this is only necessary if you want an extra copy of the test questions.

The recently-published Notebooking Journals are a user-friendly companion that provides space for answering On Your Own and Study Guide questions as well as for developing Lab Reports. Study helps include graphic organizers and a Module Summary for each module (fill-in-the-blank). Digging Deeper sections provide opportunity for practical applications and writing activities. For the teacher there are grading rubrics for lab reports and suggested answers for some of the graphic organizers. The History of Science module includes a nicely done timeline. Grading rubrics for the lab reports are provided in the Appendix.

Most of the courses are available on Complete Course CD-ROMs. These 2-disc sets include all of the information found in the print version of the course along with additional multimedia animations, videos, narrations, and pronunciation guides. Tests can be viewed on-screen and printed out, but are not interactive. The teacher has access to password-protected answers which they can use for manual grading. Although the program does not require access to the internet, Internet Explorer is used as the interface.

Companion CD-ROMs are also available for each Apologia textbook. Not to be confused with the CD-ROM Complete Course, these CD-ROMs offer only the multimedia features that cannot be included in a print textbook. Features include videos of experiments, close-ups of a variety of organisms, identification of different components on 3-D models, and pronunciations of words with which students are probably unfamiliar. This one would be our preference, as our family finds it easier to read a book than to read for an extended period on the computer monitor. System requirements for all CD-ROMS: Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, and 10 (not supported for Mac operating systems).

MP3 Audio CDs are also available for most courses. The audio files are in MP3 format, and will require an MP3-compatible CD player to use (these can also be run on most computers). Tests, study guides, and answers are not included - this is simply an audio version of the text.

Apologia now offers updated Video Instruction DVDs for Biology, Chemistry, and Advanced Biology. These have been remade with Sherri Seligson as your host (switching from Rusty Hughes). Sherri is an author and scientist and she energetically takes you to interesting locations, incorporating animated diagrams (over 20 hours of instruction) to help students better understand the concepts being taught. The content is more of a summary of the textual information found in each section of the modules than a narration of the text. Students will either see Sherri Seligson on location or in a lab during the speaking portions or they will see animated illustrations and examples. Sherri takes students through each lab and talks about what needs to be done and the results of the experiments. There are no pdf files with this newer edition of the DVDs just video lessons and tutorials for the experiments in 4-disc sets.

General Science, Physical Science, and Physics are going out of print from the publisher. The stock we have remaining are the Rusty Hughes edition of the DVDs (while they last). The lecture instruction closely follows the text, with lectures broken down by text section. Presented in a slideshow fashion, students will see information or illustrations and hear Mr. Hughes as he explains that concept. At the appropriate time, Mr. Hughes will perform the experiments for each chapter, explain the procedure, work through the experiment, and offer a visual of the expected outcome so that students know how to do the experiment themselves. He also makes it very clear that the demonstrations are not to replace you doing the experiments. Module notes are available in PDF format at the beginning of each module and contain all math problems from the lectures. The student will print them and fill them out as they are discussed in the lecture. A suggestion for planning your lessons for a 10-day period is offered at the beginning of the first module.

To use these DVDs, you must have a DVD drive on your computer (PC or MAC) capable of playing mp4 files; these are not compatible with a DVD player.




If only this course had been available when I was in high school! Maybe then the college biology I took would not have been so difficult. In fact, much of the material contained in this manual is identical to the concepts I learned in my first year college science course. Perhaps the reason for this is that The Human Body: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, when combined with Exploring Creation with Biology, is equivalent to one full year of college biology.

As a prerequisite to this course, the student must complete a year of high school biology (such as Exploring Creation with Biology). Authors Dr. Jay Wile and Marilyn M. Shannon, M.A. also recommend that students complete a high school chemistry course such as Exploring Creation with Chemistry.

The first volume in this two-volume set is the student textbook, which is comprised of 16 chapters or modules. The first module provides an organizational overview of the human body, as well as reviewing some basic concepts of biology such as cell structure, protein synthesis, and cellular mitosis. Subsequent modules cover histology (study of tissues), integumentary and skeletal systems (skeletal system histology and movement, muscle histology and physiology, skeletal muscle system), nervous system (neurons and neuroglia, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system), endocrine system, circulatory system, lymphatic system, digestive system, respiratory system, urinary system, and reproductive system. Featured in each module are helpful "on your own" study questions to help students test their comprehension of the subject matter. A study guide after each module allows students to review important concepts in the module as preparation for the chapter test.

The second volume is the solution manual. This manual includes module tests and solutions to study guides and module tests.

Each module takes approximately 2 weeks to complete, as long as students devote at least one hour of every school day to the study of this text. At this pace, the course should take about 32 weeks to complete. This of course is only a guideline, and would allow you about 4 to 8 weeks of flexibility in a typical school year.

This resource lays an excellent foundation for further science studies. Like the other Apologia science courses, is homeschool-friendly and does not require a great deal of expensive lab equipment. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to pursue a science degree. ~ Rachel
