This kit includes the following items:

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 COMPREHENSIVE SCIENCE PROGRAMS:

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




Category Description for Exploring Creation with Physics:

Judging by the number of Saxon Physics books we sell in a year, physics must not be a very popular course among homeschoolers. But this book could change that. Just as in Dr. Wile's other science books, he does a wonderful job of explaining complex ideas in simple, understandable terms, using common household items for experiments instead of expensive lab equipment, and discussing science from a creationist standpoint. The course comes in two parts. The "mass"ive part is the student text, which also includes "On Your Own" questions with accompanying solutions and discussions, lab exercises, end-of-chapter review questions and practice problems. Color drawings help to illustrate points on all the concepts covered, which include Measurement and Units, Motion in One Dimension, Two-Dimension Motion, Newton's Laws, Circular Motion, Work and Energy, Momentum, Periodic Motion, Waves and Optics, Electrostatics, Electrodynamics, Electrical Circuits, and Magnetism. The second part is Solutions and Tests, which includes answers to review questions, answers to practice problems, chapter tests, and test answers. This manual does include the perforated tests listed separately below. Each of the 16 chapters, or modules, is designed to take about two weeks if done daily for 45 to 60 minutes per day. Since physics involves some higher-level math, Algebra I, geometry and basic trigonometry are prerequisites for this course. The author also suggests taking other science courses, like biology and chemistry, before this course. This book was revised in 2004, and the new edition features many useful updates. Module 1 is no longer a review of chemistry, so if a student has not already taken chemistry, he will be directed to an online version of the first module of the chemistry course. This way, students can learn the basic skills needed for the physics course even if they have not taken chemistry. More topics have been added to this edition, as well as extra practice problems; cumulative tests for those who wish to assign quarterly, semester, or final exams; ten more experiments; as well as a directory of online resources for students who have the time and desire to access advanced subject matter. What do students think of the course? One wrote, "On my very first test in college physics, I got the highest score in the class. My professor said that I must have had an excellent high school physics course. He was right!"

Even though the module tests are found in the solutions and test manual (so that the parent/teacher always has a copy of them), a second set of tests is provided in a perforated booklet. This allows the student to be given the tests without using those in the solutions and test manual.

Gwen G on Jun 14, 2018
We plan to use this before digging into the Saxon physics- plus the saxon doesn't have labs so this will be a first pass of Physics for my homeschool students, then as seniors, they will go through the saxon physics. This is the same author as the Earth Science Book, and we loved that book- feel Wile, is a good scientist and good author of science books.

I have been very impressed with Dr. Wile's previous science courses and believe that he can do what I see as a next to impossible task-- leading me to a better understanding of one of the most intimidating and often dreaded of science courses--physics. Also, the price on this site was much better than on other sites I looked at.

Does the test Manuel come with this set?
A shopper on May 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This set includes the textbook plus a set of tests and a "solutions" manual which is the answer key.
Is this the 2nd edition?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, it is the 2nd edition which is used by the Apologia Academy
Trying to find out what grade level this would land in for prerequisites for college/university. My daughter is wanting to take a bachelors in nursing and needs physics 30 in an Alberta school. I googled the equivalent for in ON (Where we live) And it would be Physics (SPH4U or SPH4C), or OAC Physics. Would this physics course meet those requirements?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with the Canadian Physics courses you cite nor with Canadian requirements. This course would be considered standard, college-prep Physics (as opposed to Honors Physics or AP - Advanced Placement Physics). We always suggest that you contact the college/university you are considering for further information on what they will accept.

Great physics curriculum
My high school daughter has successfully used several of Dr. Jay L. Wile's textbooks before (good for independent study) and continues to enjoy his conversational tone. Difficult material but extensive, detailed information is discussed thoroughly, and each module of instruction contains both in-chapter and end-of-chapter problems and a final review. Also, the labs are in this book and are "homeschool friendly." The solutions manual provides an answer key with explanations.

Apologia Physics
This is a very comprehensive physics curriculum. It will prepare the kids well for college physics. I have used with all my kids the science Apologia courses from elementary science to high school biology, chemistry and anatomy. I love how the course is designed, the experiments and the work in general. My kids have learned so much from their science curriculum. Apologia does a great job with their science courses. I highly recommended for anyone looking for a strong science curriculum!

Exploring Creation with Physics
My daughter HATES math. Physics is big on math! We first tried Saxon Physics to go along with our homeschool group and she was in tears. I finally decided to switch to Exp. Creation w/Physics because she has loved the Exp. Creation Biology & Chemistry in the past. It has made all the difference. It's a very good book & she still needs to do the math in it, but it's not overwhelming in the math department.

My son has completed Apologia Biology and is now doing Apologia Chemistry He cannot wait to do his course each week (he�s in a virtual co-op) I like how Apologia has ways to learn for different learning styles You can use the text on its own listen on Mp3 files use the Windows Explorer-driven CD-rom text get supplemental videos and of course the labs have hands-on learningThe labs are easily done at home with some material sets you can purchase from Apologia or elsewhere They are top-notch high school labs which teach the proper ways to do lab reportsApologia�s content is both broad and deep If you want to teach from a creation perspective these of course are geared for that But the texts also explain the evolutionary side of things so that when your child takes standardized tests they will know and understand the evolutionary science questions�even without believing they are the truth
