  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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

  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. I was on the phone with Kolbe Academy this morning (wonderful chat and great customer service, btw) about their Biology course. I wanted to use their homeschool course plan, but was concerned that the book they use is getting dated (dragonfly Miller Levine Biology book). They have adopted the new edition for their online course (mccaw book). So I wanted to know if they were updating the course plan soon. The word is that they are in fact updating their course plan to correspond to the new edition. The expectation is that the revised course plan will be available at the end of the summe
  10. I am trying to find out how others implement the Miller/Levine Biology. What components do you use? Do you do labs from the book or do a separate lab component? Any other supplements? Thanks for any insight. Louise
  11. I'm planning RSO Level 2 Biology for next year ... anyone used this? advice? great resources to add? I'll toss things I plan to supplement with &c onto the thread as I figure it out. TIA!! SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCES PLAN: Magic of Reality (Dawkins) with app Attenborough's Life DVD series (again! now with N. tagging along) Prehistoric Park DVD (maybe)
  12. Just wondering if anyone can give me a little information about how the "interactive" aspects of the Holt Biology kit work. I've been on their website and they really don't explain it very well. It looks like I could buy the homeschool set and get a hardcover student book, with a year subscription to the online stuff which seems to include an interactive reader version of the student text; and then lots of teacher resources and other interactive things. I registered to sample it but the sample is basically just a pdf of the book and you can't actually click on anything to see how anything w
  13. Dear Forum Folk, We hope you have found The Well-Trained Mind and these forums to be excellent resources for your home schooling efforts! We’ve been in the classical education business for over 15 years, providing homeschooling families with high-quality, ground-breaking resources that combine the best of the classical tradition with innovative teaching methods. In fact, more than half a million parents have successfully used the curricula, book lists, and methods of The Well-Trained Mind to teach their children at home. Now, we’re excited to bring you the second academic year
  14. Would anyone care to share reviews of the high school biology class offered by The Well-Trained Mind Academy? The syllabus lists evolution, so it appears it will be directly taught and not avoided. I'm curious about the coverage of evolution. Is it presented as a given and mentioned from time to time even outside of those particular lessons? Or... Is it presented as part of an ongoing disagreement with other possibilities being given equal weight? Some other variation? I know this can be a touchy subject. I'm just trying to get an idea about the class to make decisions for my fa
  15. Has anyone used CK-12 successfully? I am looking into using it for High School Biology. I like the Flexbook and I like that you can create a class and send assignments. However, I am having trouble assigning say Ch. 1 of Flexbook and then take quizzes. I can't figure it out. Am I missing something? I have considered having ds do the self study and I just watch his progress. (We are doing Biology labs seperately. My other dd is using Kolbe Biology and it is going wonderfully)
  16. An excellent video on the philosopher Aristotle's contribution to founding the science of biology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QesWw3Zz0Ms
  17. Video about Aristotle as not only a philosopher but the "founder" of the science of biology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QesWw3Zz0Ms
  18. Could someone offer advice on preparing for the AP Biology test independently? What books did you use and how did you study? (I realize that an AP Biology course would not be placed on the transcript for a self-study class.) Thank you for your help.
  19. I am really uneducated in the catagory of biology. I have been relentlessy searching for a high school biology book for my daughter to use. I have gotten down to the Prentice Hall Miller and Levine biology books. The dragonfly is a little older and less expensive and the Macaw is more expensive (Amazon) I am looking for a text with an answer key. I have searched high and low on the internet to find out what to use for the answers. I found the student text. The study workbook A and B. The teachers edition( with no explination as to what is in the teachers editions). I can't figure out how
  20. Does anyone know if virtual labs count as lab credit for high school biology?
  21. If we complete the majority of the labs included in the Apologia Biology curriculum, will that be counted as "lab" credit?
  22. I'm looking for respiratory system posters, preferably laminated. Does anyone have a good source besides Amazon or Rainbow Resource?
  23. We bought a new microscope last year and want a science program that will make great use of it. I have a 10-year-old (5th/6th) and an 8-year-old (3rd/4th), and we would like to do this together. Any suggestions for a kit, book, or curriculum that is microscope-reliant? Secular, please.
  24. Kolbe announced today that their Advanced Honours Biology class has received the green flag from College Board for the AP designation. http://kolbe.org/news/ap-biology-course/ YEAH! I'm a happy camper! PA homeschoolers didn't work for us, as my kid truly need direct interaction with a teacher, not asynchronous interaction. Here's the link to the class description http://kolbe.org/online-courses/course-offerings/2014-15-school-year/high-school/online-science-courses/wcs-bio-ap/ The class meets twice a week, for an hour each time. Monday and Thursday, 6h25 -7h25 pm Eastern ti
  25. So- I have one student who has Earth Science and Chem w/Lab under her belt for 9th and 10th. We have a couple options for 11 & 12 (all courses are intended to include labs). 1)Bio then AP Biology 2)Physics and Bio (in either order) 3)Physics then AP Bio (with no earlier Bio class) I am trying to decide if AP Bio really needs a year introductory course first or if you can jump right in. The student is leaning towards the 2 bio sequence but wants to do what is best and not have a transcript that looks too easy. This is not a future STEM major and she will have completed
