Category Description for Friendly Biology:

Facing the high school sciences with an apprehensive learner or overwhelmed home-teacher? Check out this new Biology course from the authors of Friendly Chemistry!

With a goal of teaching high school students the complexity of living things in a gentle, non-intimidating manner, this course goes above and beyond expectations. Presenting a traditional scope of study, sans evolution and natural selection, this text contains 28 lessons, vibrant illustrations, and lab activities for a complete, year-long course. Topically, students will study the characteristics of living things; basic chemistry as it pertains to living things; the roles of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids in living systems; importance of pH in living systems; cytology; mitosis and meiosis; chromosome duplication and protein synthesis; reproduction (asexual and sexual); genetics; taxonomy, including a survey of each kingdom with an emphasis on various classes and orders; an overview of human anatomy and physiology; and the foundations of ecology.

The Student Textbook is available in a Christian Worldview version and a Secular version. Worth mentioning, content is marginally different (scripture references in the Christian Worldview version). Co-ops or classroom students could use the books concurrently with success. Lessons are expected to take one week to complete, with readings from 10-25 pages, so some lessons may need additional time to complete. Textbook readings are accompanied by lab activities. Labs are designed to be homeschool friendly and use household or easily found items. A sampling of lab experiences includes: osmosis with eggs and vegetables, creating a cell model, determining pH, and making butter and yogurt. You will need internet access for the Taxonomy activity. The Textbook includes space for documenting the lab activities although students may wish to make a science notebook. The author is in the process of developing video dissection labs; contact us for availability. No microscope is required for this course.

The Student Workbook is a vital component to this course and works with either version: Secular or Christian Worldview. The 2 worksheets per lesson contain a mix of fill in the blank questions, matching exercises and puzzles. Not reproducible, each child will need their own copy.

A Lesson Tests and Answer Keys book is also available. This contains the lesson tests, test answers and the answer key for the student workbook. Lesson tests contain multiple choice questions and photocopying within one family is permissible per the author.

This course would make an excellent introduction to the author’s Friendly Anatomy or to ease struggling students into the high school level sciences to build confidence while learning. All books are soft cover. ~ Deanne

We used Friendly Chemistry and were very happy with it, so I decided to continue with another by the same author.

It seems easy to understand.

I needed a biology text that is suitable for those who are not scientifically inclined, or for a student who had had very little formal science teaching before the 9th grade.

Worked well with oldest daughter, so will use it next year with youngest daughter when she takes this class too.

Material seems understandable and not overwhelming

I was looking for a Biology program that was approachable. The author actually answered his phone (listed on book website), and gave me advice when I had preliminary questions when searching for a program. The content is straight forward, and I see my son succeeding.

Do you need the workbook to go with the textbook or is it extra practice only?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The workbook contains the worksheets for the lessons, there are no questions to answer in the textbook. The lab activities are in the textbook at the end of the chapters. Not all of the chapters have labs activities.

The student workbook includes word finds, crossword puzzles, or fill-in-the-blank questions for each chapter of the textbook, and was helpful for my daughter to recall and apply information that she read.
