  1. So... :D I did the same thing for high school bio that I did for chem. Remember, though, that I'm not a high school specialist in Bio so my judgments on whether something is reg or honours could be off - please feel free to correct me if you disagree with something I've posted! :) I didn't include a category for "Math background needed" for most of the bio curricula (except for AP). I don't find that a certain level of math is required for most high school biology courses beyond just basic alg skills (working with simple equations, fractions, decimals, possibly scientific notation, etc.

  3. Thinking ahead to next year, trying to plan for Honors Bio for my DS. The 2 classes I'm really considering right now are Blue Tent and Homeschool Connections. Anyone have reviews for either? Blue Tent is pricey, but it seems solid and we already own the textbook used for that one. My son took a Zoology class on Homeschool Connections last year with the same teacher that teaches their Honors Bio class, and he likes her. The class is also cheaper than Blue Tent's, but uses an old Bio book from 1989. We also looked at Schole Academy, since they're using the new Novare Biology book, and
  4. First post. My mind is very cluttered right now, just want to know whatever everyone thinks about the universe in terms of our planet. Do you think we play a huge role? What about other life somewhere else?
  5. I am looking for a biology lab kit to use with my not-very-scientifically-minded 10th grader. I prefer secular, and I prefer labs that actually work (had some trouble with mistakes in Bridget Ardoin's chem labs last year). My basic curriculum is a self-created amalgam of secular resources. I have a B.S. in biology but lack natural talent for laboratory work and time for planning it. So, I am looking for a set of experiments that comes with a kit of supplies and reagents and such. And something not too challenging. Any suggestions or experiences you can share? I will appreciate any input.
  6. My 15 yo is doing great in Chemistry. He skipped biology because he really doesn't want to do it. He loves animals very much and can't handle the dissections. Generally he complains but does the classes I request him to do, so his next science is Bio, and he is really putting on the breaks. Any other science that colleges accept in place of biology? We have no idea what he wants to do for his future, so we are aiming for college. He can take bio for non major at the community college, or Apologia Bio from the best science teacher at co-op. I would rather he have another choic

  8. I recently came across this online lab option and thought I'd post it out here in case anyone was interested. Here is the link - http://www.sciencecourseware.com/BLOL/ It's offered free by the California State University system. It states it is AP or college level.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for a secular biology course for my 12 yo dd. She would prefer to work on it on her own. We've used RSO Chemistry with her younger brother this past year and while I thought it was pretty good, she wasn't too crazy about it...so I'm not sure about RSO Biology 2, although she might like it better doing it on her own...but it's soo expensive!! Any other good secular courses that don't break the bank? Thanks!
  10. If your student has used Holt Biology, approximately how many hours a week did they work on it?
  11. Hi. I'm Kris Langman, author of the Logic to the Rescue series. I'm currently writing the fourth book in the series and I'm taking suggestions for topics to cover, both in this book and in the rest of the books in the series. (I'm planning six to seven books in total). For example, a reader asked me to include some info about the Linnean system of classification, so I added info about this to the the third book, The Bard of Biology. Suggestions can be about logic, math, physics, chemistry, and biology. I'll try to include as many suggestions as possible as long as they work with th
  12. Hi, In planning science for our son's junior year, I am considering an alternative to the standard Biology course most students take. Our son has already taken Physics and Chemistry (at our local college). While he is STEM minded, there is no strong interest in general biology itself. I am curious if anyone else has selected a different Life Science besides standard high school Biology for their student? Possibly Anatomy, Physiology, Marine Biology, etc... Just as an aside, my undergraduate degree is in Life Science and I never took biology in high school either. Anatomy and Physiolog
  13. Our son is gifted but 2E, interested in possibly going into engineering or science. He's currently in 8th. We're trying to decide now between honors or regular biology. How do you decide? What are the options for courses which give teaching materials and grading info, but where you will do the grading (i.e., no transcript). At this point we're "testing the waters". And if you buy a regular biology course, and decide to then progress further/faster, can you make it honors -- how? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!
  14. When we learned about the role of microorganisms role in decomposition my youngest son expressed some fears about microorganisms eating him...so I told him about how when we're living that our cells have ways of fighting bad bacteria and germs, and that some bacteria also lives in our body and doesn't hurt us, but when someone or something dies that our cells start to die anyways, and so the microorganisms only eat dead things. It helped him with his fears but it was off the top of my head (that part wasn't covered in the material...and I took biology a LONG time ago) so I'm not so sure how
  15. We're looking for a good, self-paced biology course and algebra course. What we really want is self-paced, with textbook (NOT all online if possible!) but also supporting materials. Something that could be started now, and completed over the academic year and summer. Our son is very bright, but does need more time and everything written -- so an online lecture class is not the best choice for us at this time. Any recommendations? We'd like something that would be well respected on college transcripts.
  16. I'm researching essential oils and from what I've been told, the longer you use them the less you need because the EOs work on a cellular level and actually help the body to heal. However, with homeopathic medicine I know you're only supposed to use whatever it is you're using for 7 to 10 days max and then give it a break for at least an equal amount of time. Anyone with a biochem backround that can help me out.
  17. Hello All, Years ago I found a book that I thought BJU had suggested using as a supplement to their biology program and now I cannot find it anywhere. Ugh! Anyhow, it's a drawing book and the intention is to reinforce what the student has learned in the readings. I guess maybe it came out before so many of the science coloring books were available. If anyone has a clue as to what I'm talking about I would really appreciate the title. Thanks! Debbie
  18. I am looking for unit studies on any of the following appropriate for a 6th grader . Ideally I would love unit studies that also could be adapted for a 8 year old as well because I'd like to combine subjects as much as possible, but my 11 year old NEEDS to learn this stuff by year after next (will be attending a public 7th grade) while my 8 year old doesn't need to study this yet. FORCE, MOTION AND ENERGY LAYERS OF THE EARTH ROCK CYCLE (metamorphic, igneous, sedimentary rock) ECOSYSTEMS BIOLOGY (Cells, Taxonomic classifications, Organisms and their Environments) SPACE Would also love su
  19. My dd is taking AP biology her sophomore year and wants to do some preparation this summer. She hasn't had high school biology, but she did take AP chemistry her freshman year (this year) and is doing well. Is there anything particularly difficult in AP biology that she could get a handle on now? Memorize the Kreb's cycle? Learn how a kidney works? Study the difference between transcription and translation?
  20. A mom of a 9 yr old messaged the person who started the #HERpers hashtag, asking how she could encourage her 9 yr old daughter, who was interested in herpetology, and she tossed it to me. This is what I came up with. I thought that maybe someone, now or in the future, would have a child interested in herpetology as well, and maybe they can use some of this. Homeschooling a #Herper-or The Perils of a Python Mom! I've written bits and pieces of this on various message boards for years, and since the #HERpers hashtag has brought up a few people who are interested in resources for their
  21. I've nearly decided on Campbell Reece Biology: Concepts and Connections. I am thinking about purchasing the DIVE downloads, primarily because it would be nice to have tests and quizzes done for me. I don't know how much we would use the lecture material. I understand there is no syllabus for this text, but I think I could make one to correlate easily enough. Questions: What are the tests like? Mainly multiple choice, or are there some that require more explanation from the student? How often is "young earth" addressed? And lastly, did you really feel that DIVE constituted an
  22. I'm considering this for my non-sciency 14yo for 9th grade. He will be about half-way through algebra when he starts it. So, those of you have used it with your kids, what did you think of it?
  23. Hello all, My oldest son is in 5th grade & we're back on biology. He was excited about doing more "real" science, but so far it's been a bust. I've been trying to follow the recommendations in WTM but I'm running into roadblocks. I'd appreciate any help. I couldn't find the right Bio Dome that was mentioned, so I bought a similar one. Smithsonian brand, but slightly different. It came with triops eggs. Only 2 things hatched, and I don't think they were triops. A bit of a dud. We bought Carnivorous Creations. So far, nothing has sprouted even though it's been 2 months.
  24. If you've taught high school biology in homeschool venues and would like to swap ideas for packing, equipment, level differentiation and learning differences, online LMS, dodging the culture wars, the minutiae of grading and scheduling, maintaining joy while slogging toward the SAT Subject Test, fetal pig strategies, "best lab ever" -- etcetera -- feel free to PM me. I've done this for a couple of years now and would love to exchange some ideas with others.
  25. Has anyone had a college require an applicant to provide dates for spine textbooks in course descriptions? Thoughts/ideas/information on "how old is too old" for listing a science textbook?
