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

Gilbert M on Aug 20, 2019
It is the most convenient way to avoid not having items on hand, or not being able to find household items at the last minute. Having each experiment packaged individually makes it student friendly. Home schooling takes place as part of a larger context of day to day living and I appreciate the peace that comes from knowing the items will be organized and ready to go. This is a gift to both student and teacher.
Toni G on Aug 20, 2019
I have used the program for another child and it was great to have all of the materials together in one place. It allows my child to be independent with the experiments.
Michelle S on Aug 12, 2019
All-in-one - don't want to hassle with gathering supplies. We will be more likely to conduct experiments with all the supplies at our fingertips!
Kristin H on Aug 6, 2019
Love having everything at my fingertips. I can skip the stress and time of finding or getting supplies for experiments!

it is easier for me if all the things i need for science are all together...i am more likely to skip experiments if i have to go looking for what i need
User on Aug 1, 2019
So excited to have an option that has almost all household supplies in one place, in labeled bags. We are trying to promote independence in learning in our rising 7th grader and feel this will help him on that path tremendously.
Karen T on May 8, 2019
Comparable price and easier to have all things at hand and together when time to complete the labs.
Cindy C on Sep 22, 2018
i've ordered these types of kits before and the time you save in hunting down items is so worth it!
Elsa C on Aug 29, 2018
I know from experience that the experiments will not get done if I have to round up all the materials my self.
Kristina C on Aug 26, 2018
My son is eager (and probably past ready) to do science completely on his own. With the kit, he doesn't need me to help him find supplies or run to the store last minute.

Lisa H on Jul 3, 2017
I decided to purchase this to make things easier when gather materials for experiments. It seems I am always missing something when it comes time for experiments.
Tara J on Jun 7, 2017
I got tired on never having all the items needed to do the experiments. The lab kits do all the work of gathering the supplies for me and makes sure I have everything I need.
Anna Marie D on May 9, 2017
To save time and be prepared for each lesson without having to take time out to find odd items. I find if we are in a hurry and haven't prepared, we end up stopping because we don't have everything we need, and I don't want to skip lessons/experiments, so everything goes on hold. If we are prepared, we move along smoothly. Having all items for experiments makes a difference in keeping things moving forward and saving me from frustration.

This kit is well worth the money. It is a time saver and eliminates going crazy, trying to hunt down specific items. You will be all set to do all the experiments.
Maria A on Aug 29, 2016
All materials are organized and ready to use. That helps to insure that experiments actually get done.
Selene G on Aug 29, 2016
I wanted to take the frustration out of "good intentions". I always think I can just plan ahead and get stuff myself. It usually never works that way.

there's very few weird or hard to find things in this, but for the hassle of going to 5 stores all over town, or finding the proper items needed in my house, AND being my first year of homeschooling, money spent to make things simple is worth it, especially to start.
Sarah C on Jul 19, 2016

BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do expect to get a lab kit for the 3rd edition soon.
Will this have everything for the experiments in the General Science 3rd edition?
A shopper on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This kit aligns to the 2nd edition. The new 3rd edition has been revised with new labs and activities, including different content. We do not believe it will align with the 3rd edition, but will not be able to compare it until the 3rd edition has been released. Please feel free to contact us at 888-841-3456 for more information.
We have a co-op class with 4 students. Would one kit be enough, or would we need 2?
User on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you want each student to do the experiments, you will need four. There is only enough material in each kit for one student. If the students shared, you could reduce it to 2 but there are some activities (like building a DNA model) that would be beneficial for each student to do. I would recommend each student have a kit and at the bare minimum sharing two. I think if you only use 1 kit, you will significantly reduce the hands-on learning experience. My daughter loves the experiments. It was her favorite part of the course!

Best lab kit out there!
This is the best science kit for the Apologia curriculum! My kids love how easy the experiments are to do when they have a kit for the experiments. I love how the kit is organized by module and include all the module items in a nice, neat package. I only need to supply pots, pans, containers, and fresh food ingredients! Thank you for making experiments organized, easy and fun!

So glad to have discovered this!
I'm not the best at getting our science tools/supplies together before a lesson, thus having a dry lesson to teach. Getting this kit has really helped with that, and now my child really enjoys science and doing the experiments. So glad that I bought this and I would recommend it to anyone else that has trouble organising their science projects.

A great help
I never seem to have something or other on hand when it comes time for science labs so I purchased this kit to use for the science lab we're hosting. So far, it's been great to just open the bag for the module we're studying and go. It is very well organized. Please note that there are still some things that you will need to shop for or have on hand (purple cabbage, eggs, etc) so do read the experiments in advance of the time you plan to do them.

I bought this because it was all inclusive and I wanted my Daughter to be able to forge ahead on her own. It was the best thing I bought this year. Well worth every dollar. She can work independently with out waiting for me to buy supplies.
