  1. I am the Mom of 2 high school boys who have chronic illnesses that are impacting their education. We're working with lots of medical specialists to control symptoms. I need suggestions for on line biology classes that are recorded by there is also grading done by a teacher. Could you please give me your suggestions? I am open to both secular and religious biology options.
  2. 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 to put together the biology books with answers so I can grade the work! I saw that there is a Prentice Hall website, but don't you have to be registered somehow? Does anyone know what Kolbe Biology Answer Key is and if it relates to either of the biology books or study guides. Please! Help needed here. I think I am in over my head! Thanks, Christine
  3. I've just finished tweaking and revising the high school level biology course (Quarks and Quirks Biology) for my younger son, 12, and his buddy. I taught the class for my older son and his friend when they were the same age, but it needed revision. I thought it might be useful to those of you with middle school aged kids needing a challenge in science. Enjoy!
  4. I'm done! I've finally finished reworking Quarks and Quirks Biology (or MacLeod Biology, as I sometimes see it linked). This is a high school level class but not AP prep. It is, however, rigorous with plenty of reading and writing and terrific labs and would be suitable for self study or a co-op class. The text books are the same as four years ago, but many labs have changed, the order is tweaked, and the website links are almost entirely new. I'll be continuing to work on study sheets for some of the subjects, and the tests will be rewritten as I go. If a miracle occurs, supply lists will also appear for each week. Please email any questions, notifications of errors or inconsistencies, or broken links to me at sdamacleod at sbcglobal dot net. I'm glad to help.
  5. The Title of this thread is a spin-off of the Chemistry thread. :001_smile: I would like a Biology that includes Human Anatomy like it did when I was in school. DD doesn't care for Biology, so it's something we want to just get through, so, the more "fun", the better. She also does NOT want to do dissection! Is that possible to get through highschool Bio. with no dissection? Is there any program out there like this? I looked at Prentice-Hall Bio., but can't figure out what I need. :001_huh: Has anyone used the PH Bio. that can tell me what I'd need to get?
  6. I'm pretty sure some one answered this once before, but I can't seem to find it... What is the difference between Campbell & Reece Biology and Campbell's Biology Concepts & Connections? Is it grade level or content? And if you know, what are the major differences between Campbell and Miller & Levine? My son is using the Biology 101 DVDs and just wants supplementary textbook reading. Thanks so much!
  7. I have been humming and haaing a lot about this! I think it would be really good for my daughter who catches this stuff so easily, to work towards the SAT subject test for Bio. next year. Some of the schools she is looking at want to see some SAT subject tests and she is thinking of becoming a midwife (so biology looks like a good one to beef up on). Anyhow, which text do you think does a good job of this? I have looked at: Campbell: Concepts and Connections Apologia: I won't use this- she needs a challenge and the chem. was so easy for her this year. The plans at Quirks and Quarks: This used the Campbell text above as well as Exploring the Way Life Works (which we own). My brother is a Molecular Biologist in France and I have been trying to get some input there- he told me not to stress about the labs, but not much else yet!
  8. FYI, it's almost ready! Here's the link to the "straight from his word processor" draft: http://www.ttgnet.com/diy-bio/diy-bio-pdf-uncorrected.zip and here's the link to pre-order the actual book http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920017691.do He's particularly interested in feedback from home-schoolers on the first few narrative chapters, in case they've left anything out. It goes to the publishers on the 31st and the hardcopy is expected to be available in April. PS. No, I'm not getting a cut from this. I just really liked the chemistry book and can't wait for this one!
  9. Does anybody know of an academically rigorous secular biology course that includes a lab component? My dd is aiming for highly selective (secular) colleges, and we are having a terrible time finding an adequate biology course. I am considering having her do PA Homeschoolers AP biology, since she had a very strong middle school biology course (in public school). For various reasons community college isn't an option, and she would prefer not to just read a textbook (she's very social, and an auditory learner--also very bright).
  10. I've read tons of threads on high school science order, and the types of science within each area. Now my questions (my head is spinning from all that reading). - Why is there a split between studying physics or chemistry conceptually vs. mathematically? - Why does it seem that studying them mathematically is "better" for high school? - Is there anything wrong with just studying them conceptually and calling that a high school course? - Would doing a mostly conceptual course in physics or chemistry be detrimental to even a science/math oriented child? As in, for later university entrance? (yes, I'll have a look at some admissions requirements, but just wondering about recent experiences out there) - Why, exactly, do some recommend going physics->chemistry->biology? - Could a mostly conceptual/optional mathematical physics course (the STG, to be specific, along with the WTM rec'd. lab manual and WTM rec'd. source reading, library reading, and writing/sketching/timelining, if you are familiar) be studied alongside Dolciani Algebra II/Trig without problems? - Are there different levels of high school mathematical physics courses? As in, some only require algebra, some require algebra and trig, some absolutely could not be done without pre-cal, etc.? - How are these mathematical physics course levels important in the consideration of future science/math study in university? I tried to find in-depth threads on the bio/chem/phys vs. phys/chem/bio debate, but couldn't find them - I know I read some good ones here within the last few years - if you could point me to some, I'd appreciate it. The reason I'm asking all this is because here in NS, high school is only grades 10-12, so I will probably do earth/space science in grade 9, and the other three after that, but am trying to work out the best order. We do WTM recs for grades 5-8 science, so I'm not sure we'll need to do this "physical science" that I see talked about here a lot (why do people do this, anyway? Is it because they haven't done chem or phys in middle grades?). My goal is to do another four-year round of those four areas, not to do a bit of something in 9th, and then repeat it more deeply in 12th. A possible plan would be: grade 8: 60s Dolciani algebra I, middle grade physics or chemistry grade 9: 60s Dolciani geometry, high school level earth/science (WTM rec'd.) high school: grade 10: 60s Dolciani algebra II/trigonometry, WTM rec'd high school physics plan (STG, lab manual, extra reading, writing) grade 11: 60s Dolciani Modern Intro. Analysis (which I'm told is pre-cal), WTM rec'd high school chemistry plan (STG, lab manual, extra reading, writing) grade 12: Calculus?, WTM rec'd. high school biology plan (STG, lab manual, extra reading, writing) What sparked all this searching and thinking is that I am trying to figure out what to do for chemistry for ds for grade 7 next year. The lab set rec'd. in my 2004 WTM is not sold anymore, and I believe the new WTM recs several labs-in-boxes, but I can't afford to buy a bunch of those. So.....I've been researching what to do - I've seen that some people use Conceptual Chemistry and Conceptual Physics in 7th and 8th grades, but I'm not crazy about doing what seems to be an in-depth textbook for middle grades - I really, really like the WTM idea of using a basic overview spine (and I'm starting to get an idea of what an overview would include - any input there would be appreciated), and supplementing with experiments, more reading, and writing. Also, I think CC and CP are too expensive for us. So, anyway, I'm researching about that (if you have any middle grade area-encompassing "spine" and lab book ideas for me - not RS4Kids - expensive, again, and I don't think chemistry is done? I would really appreciate help there, too!), and then started thinking, "If I can't come up with a chemistry plan for this year, why not do the WTM middle grade physics plan, which I already have (Reader's Digest books, create experiments from that)?" which led me down the road of researching the high school science order. Thanks for any input you can give!
  11. I'm looking for lab books or kits. We'll be using Exploring Life and Thinkwell Chemistry if that matters.
