Product Description:

A complete audio recording of the General Science text and "on your own" problems, as read by Candice Jones. This is a suitable accompaniment to the books for auditory learners, slow readers, and others with reading difficulties. The study guides, tests, and answers are not included on this CD, which is in MP3 format requiring an MP3-compatible CD player.
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 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.

Category Description for Exploring Creation with General Science:

From Dr. Jay Wile, this two-volume set is the first course of the Exploring Creation with... series. As such, it touches on the basics in several areas of science. The 16 modules in the hardcover student text are designed to be covered in 32-36 weeks. These modules introduce the history of science, scientific inquiry, experimentation, simple machines, archaology, geology, paleontology, fossils, the fossil record, life, classification of life, the human body, energy, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, the reproductive system, the urinary system, and the nervous system. As with the entire series, the book is written to be understandable; you do not need to be a high school science teacher to present the material. And, as you would expect from the


Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.

Using the CD will be a huge benefit to my dyslexic son! Now, I don't have to spend extra time reading the material to him, he can listen to it himself.

Helpful to my daughter who sometimes loses the meaning of the sentence when sounding out some of the bigger scientific words.
Suanne R on Sep 19, 2018
i believe for struggling readers and proficient readers alike, will benefit from auditory learning. i will have a 7th and 5th grader working together. so my 5th grader will have a jump start either way with the audio book.
Tina F on Aug 29, 2018
My daughter is taking this class on her own this year, so I thought having the audio cd playing while she followed along may help ease that transition.

For when I don't have time to read to them and for correct pronunciation of words.
Wendy F on Mar 20, 2018
My son was NOT progressing very fast. It is taking him a LONG time to get thru each section. I can't sit and read the whole thing to him. This recording should make life a bit easier. I want to complete the book by school-years end.
Leslie T on Oct 17, 2017
These CDs help so much with kids who struggle with reading big science words. The voice is nice to listen too and all of my kids enjoy these.

I bought these so it would give mom a break from having to read the sections of these books to my kids. They can be listening while eating lunch or at night. They can even read along. It helps my kids. My oldest is an auditory learner and these really help for her to understand the text.

My daughter is an auditory learner and retains more when she reads along the text as she listens to the audio.
Diane M on Oct 30, 2016
so they can be learning while in the car, doing chores, etc
Genevieve L on Oct 25, 2016
I thought it would be helpful to hear the correct pronunciation of the terms by someone who is more of an expert than I am.
Marci F on Sep 2, 2016
My Daughter is an auditory learner and I do not have time to read the text out loud to her. What a wonderful thing to find...the text on CD!!! Perfect solution!

It's required material for our home school co-op.
Victor A on Aug 26, 2016
My son has reading difficulties and I find that listening to the same text he is reading helps him get all the information. I know all the scientific words will be pronounced correctly and he can go back and listen to the lessons as many times as he wants.
Stephanie S on Aug 5, 2016
Trying to help my son become more independent, but at the same time not overwhelm him with all the reading that's coming his way. I think using the cd while following along in the book will accomplish this.
Lacey W on Jul 9, 2016
We have purchased the textbook for next year but my son is an auditory learner and reluctant reader. I am hoping reading along with the book will help his comprehension of the material.

Great for any student
Our kids enjoy Science because they like listening to the “teacher” on this audio cd. My kids put it into the dvd/blueray player and play it as a music file. No problems! I like it because it help them learn and gives me a break from having to help them with the reading. There are some hard words to pronounce, even as an adult!

I began listening to this CD the other day as I was getting ready for school. I am a bit disappointed to be honest. The person reading this is very difficult to listen to. The pauses, the tone of voice I only got through a short bit of the introduction and I was thinking "oh no.. the kids are not going to like this." Very dry. I love Apologia's materials, so we will drudge through this. I need the help, however, I don't think I would recommend it. :(

This Audiobook has it's pros and cons. I really like that there is an option for my weak reader to listen to the text being read and without me having to read it to him. I don't like that this is an MP3 CD. I really wish it could've been a regular CD. On the positive side, the files are nicely organized. The cost is affordable so that is a plus. I'm glad Apologia has the option and I will try it again.

Great help, highly recommend
I wish all texts came with an audio option. As a mother of 3 children with dyslexia this product is a huge, life-changing help. They can read, but much slower and with much lower comprehension than when they hear it read to them. This product allows them to learn and be independent with completing the reading assignments. Thank you Apologia and RR for providing this excellent resource! The voice is a pleasant sounding female.

Excellent resource!
This is an excellent supplement to the book Exploring Creation With General Science. This MP3 is a word-by-word reading of the textbook with the exception of the figures (pictures) and the text that goes with them.
