Product Description:

Contains the Teacher Guide and the Student Book.

Publisher Description:

The DNA that controls all life forms were created at the beginning by God who spoke life into being. Along with the blessings of modern tools to study life, it has become obvious that no life is simple. This makes sense because nothing that God creates is simple. This course begins with a review of chemical principles needed for biology, including the biology of water, and concludes with human origins that have huge implications as to whether or not we were created in God's image with an eternal destiny or the sum product of natural laws acting upon atoms and molecules. We know that all of the variations in humans today had their roots in the DNA of two humans (Adam and Eve) and give glory to God for this wonder of life.

  • High school science course with lab curriculum
  • Lab experiments included, with images of prepared microscopic slides
  • Based on the principle that students who can understand and apply information do much better than those who simply memorize material

This course provides important training and practice in developing skills involved in the study of biology, including observing and recognizing interactions and interdependencies of organisms in their natural environment, the use of a light microscope, dissection skills, and insights and recent advances in modern biology.

A teacher guide is available for Biology, providing this full-year science course with a detailed schedule, worksheets, and tests.

Category Description for Master's Biology:

Strong enough to be college prep, this high school course takes an average of 5 hours a week. Everything you need (except lab supplies) can be found in the Student Text and Teacher Guide. Dr. Dennis Englin, the author of Master Books Chemistry , makes this Christian worldview Biology course understandable, yet comprehensive, beginning with the basics. Students will first learn about water, then carbohydrates and lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Then building on this knowledge, students learn about cells, cell membranes and nucleus, movement through cell membranes, cell organelles, and cell division. After learning about the cellular and molecular level of life, students are now ready to go bigger with a wide variety of topics from ecosystems to human origins. With 28 total chapters, this is a one-year, one full credit high school course.

Student Text pages are visually appealing and not overcrowded. Colorful pictures, photos, and illustrations enhance the learning and hold interest. I love the logical course layout. Dr. Englin begins with an explanation of the chemical principles of biology. Understanding the basics of chemistry will help students better understand the foundation of living things, since all things are made of atoms. Every chapter begins by listing objectives. Chapters are divided into bite-size chunks of information with vocabulary words highlighted. Bible verses are also found throughout the text, using the NKJV. Chapters include labs with lists of required materials, explanation, and step-by-step procedures There are microscope and dissection labs. Lab materials may not be readily available but can be ordered from a science supplier. The Lab materials list is found in the Teacher Guide, but you can also call us and we can send the list to you before purchasing the course.

The Teacher Guide is useful for implementing this course. It includes a course description;a page of teacher instructions for the course labs; quizzes; and exams; lab supply list; sample lab report; grading sheet and a daily schedule for both semesters (18 weeks per semester, 36 total weeks); answer keys for lab reports/worksheets/quizzes/exams; and student lab pages; worksheets; quizzes; and exams that are reproducible for family use. The top of each student worksheet page is labeled with the topic, the day number, the lesson number, whether it’s a worksheet or lab page, and a place for the student name. Worksheets are fill-in-the-blank questions based on the lesson’s reading. For each lab there is a sheet of lab instructions and a place to take notes and a lab report page. Quizzes are matching and/or multiple choice, and the exams are all matching questions (8 exams total). Master Books makes biology homeschool and parent friendly!

Excellent Biology curriculum that lends itself to a classical Christian education.

Masterbooks have NEVER disappointed me!

Seemed like a more streamline book based on reviews.

Cost and clarity. We have tried numerous Science curriculums and this one seemed more appealing.
Susan T on Oct 31, 2021
I used the Masters Books Survey of Science curriculum with my 7th, 9th, and 10th graders last year. The quality, clarity, and organization was beyond any science curriculum I had used for my older children in the past. I am looking forward to the same experience with this Biology curriculum.

We needed a high school biology course and have really liked many of masterbooks other curriculum options.
Heather J on Jul 22, 2020
The book seems to cover most of what we would like to see covered, but it's also nicely formatted and organized.

Could someone let me know where to find the videos for lecture for Master Books Biology & did you find purchasing the set with it without microscope helpful? Thank you!
User on Sep 20, 2023
My son has no interest in Science and probably will only pursue community college. I want him to have a general understanding but do not need college prep material. Would this work for him?
Anita M on Aug 21, 2022
BEST ANSWER: My son and I are 3 weeks into this curriculum and I would not consider it strenuous so far. The schedule provided is reading the text and answering questions day 1-2, day 3 review and quiz, day 4 lab and day 5 complete final lab report. This repeats weekly. So far I am pleased, it's not too strenuous but it is thorough. We also are using the video lessons along with the text which helps my auditory learner, I've found the videos beneficial so far.
Is there scripture in this book?
Tiffany on Apr 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Scripture is quoted in this textbook, but on a very limited basis. However, biblical truths about creation and Christ are discussed regularly, showing students God's great wisdom displayed in creation and how we can trust Him, and consequently should align our lives accordingly.

Another great high school science resource by Masterbooks!
You need both the teacher guide and the student text for this high school science course with lab curriculum. As with all Masterbooks curriculum – it is written from a biblical worldview. The Biology Through A Microscope, published by Masterbooks, also makes a great companion for this course. All the lab images that are not in the Biology book is in the Biology Through a Microscope book. You can even get away without buying a microscope if you do use the Biology Through a Microscope to reference images of the prepared microscopic slides, although the hands-on learning with a real microscope is very valuable.
Although the first few chapters are review of chemical principles needed for biology, it doesn’t give basic explanations of things like atoms, protons, neutrons, molecules, chemical reactions etc. So depending on which science program your student used in the elementary years, you might need some extra resources to lay important foundation of chemistry, to give proper background for your child to fully enjoy and learn from this Biology resource. Masterbooks have great resources, like God’s design for Chemistry & Ecology (for grades 3-8) for this.
I enjoy the suggested daily schedule. It is very easy to follow and saves a lot of planning time. One lesson a week, with one quiz and one lab report each week. It has beautiful images and pictures. The “words to understand” can be used to make flashcards for students that enjoy learning with flashcards. And you can easily use the course objectives at the beginning of each chapter to let your student write more narration/essay type of questions.
