  1. Looking ahead to biology...I have the BJU biology book (thanks to another homeschool family whose kids are done). I have the TE and a DIVE biology disc. BUT it is just too much. Waaaay too much. I think it will overwhelm my very average high school students. I don't know what to cut and what to keep. Neither one of my current high school students will be doing honors or AP type biology. Just plain vanilla with no sauce or sprinkles. :) Miller Levine *looks* less overwhelming. I have seen chapters online and like what I see. So, here's what I need to know--which edition of Miller Levine should I start scouring for if .... * I need inexpensive--no way I can pay $40+ for just the student text. Less than $20 is ideal. * I need the TE--once again, I need a lower price point for the TE; nothing over $40, if possible. But I do need a TE or answer key of some sort. I'm a humanities girl who has forgotten the majority of my high school science. ;) I need teacher support. *I need actual physical books--videos and other online bits are nice to flesh things out, but my kids do better with real books that they can touch and flip through. Online reading is too distracting for one of mine. He needs the physicality of a book. Are the macaw and dragonfly versions so very different? I understand that new discoveries are made, science changes and books change too, but do I really *need* the latest and greatest? Could I just supplement an older version? I can find a dragonfly TE and student books much cheaper than the macaw version. Anything else I should consider about using Miller Levine?
  2. 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 summer. So... If you already have the dragonfly book in hand and wanted to use the Kolbe course plan, you might want to get it soon, while they still have copies of that version. If you are wanting a course plan for the new edition of the Miller Levine book, you might want to wait until August, when they hope to have the new plan out. Also, online honors and advanced honors biology courses use Campbell Biology. The Advanced Honors course is being submitted for review as an official AP course. (They weren't sure if it would be approved without live labs.)
  3. OK, maybe I'm just missing it but I don't see any answers to any of the workbooks, lab sheets, or tests in the Teacher's Edition or Teacher Access pack. Is this correct?
  4. I'm confused... I purchased the Dragonfly edition. This is what I've bought so far: Textbook Reading and Study Workbook A *Adapted* Reading and Study Workbook B (why "adapted?" & is it different from the "non-adapted" Reading & Study Workbook A?) Laboratory Manual A Laboratory Manual B Kolbe Course Plans & Tests Kolbe Biology Answer Key Prentice Hall Biology - Student Edition (is this a lab book?) I haven't rec'd this book yet so I can't look in it. Is this too much? Do we really need all this? I couldn't find this all on one website so I was going between two or three sites, and it got confusing...very confusing. :confused: Any been-there-done-that help would be GREATLY appreciated! And don't hold back... If I bought too much, please tell me! If there is something else I need (like, where are the answers to these books??), please tell me that, too. Thank you!
  5. 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!
  6. I am desperate for guidance on this topic. At this point, my plan is for my son to use Miller-Levine Biology next year when he is in 9th grade. However, I am a bit confused about how best to implement the course -- whether to use the Kolbe syllabus, teacher's materials directly from the publisher, or something else. I've read many threads on this topic, and I still don't have a clear idea of what to do. Having read that the publisher is not consistent in dealing with homeschoolers doesn't help. We used the Kolbe syllabus this year with Prentice-Hall Physical Science, and I felt it had some pros and cons. The most recent con was that I just graded an exam and felt that I couldn't properly evaluate my son's answers because I'm not an expert in the field (i.e., on short-answer, essay-style questions). I was also annoyed when I discovered an error in the Kolbe Answer Key early on in the course. I actually called Kolbe, and they agreed that it was an error, but hadn't included it in an errata listing. Understandably, these things happen, but when I haven't mastered the material myself, it's more than a little frustrating. My priorities in figuring out what to use are: 1) Tests should be simple to grade, with clear black and white answers (perhaps multiple-choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank?), 2) Course schedule (or syllabus) should be easy for the student to follow without much involvement from mom, 3) Labs (or virtual labs) shouldn't be difficult to implement, 4) Course should be rigorous, with an eye toward taking AP Biology in a couple of years. Am I asking too much? As a humanities person, I admit I'd laugh if someone asked me for multiple-choice exams in my areas of specialty (music, art history, lit, history). Well, perhaps I wouldn't laugh -- but I would point out the difficulty of thorough evaluation when one eliminates the essay-style question. Still, I just don't have time to master the material on top of everything else I need to do. Suggestions? Thanks, Tiffany
  7. I am searching for the ISBN numbers for the Teacher's edition - Miller Levine Biology. Either the dragonfly or the parrot. My Amazon searching isn't finding many options. :( I can find student editions, study guides, etc... but not many TE options. If you have it, please also note which year edition the numbers are for, in case the amazon description doesn't clarify. Thank you so much! We've decided to use this next year for dd, but without a te, I'm useless! Lol
  8. Hello to all using M/L Biology (Macaw) Book and Lab manual.... Another mom and I have been exchanging questions and she proposed starting a support group to share tips and tricks we've learned....so voila... It's so helpful to know when we can substitute materials as well - and sometimes more fun... I thought if people put the chapter in the heading of the post, it would help people identify more easily where an answer might be... After time is spent chasing down some detail that wasn't well-explained, it's fun to be able to share it... Any other ideas/suggestions are welcome - the value of the hive is building together... Joan
  9. I have a friend who owns the Miller/Levine Biology, copyright 2002, that she is willing to let me borrow. It is the one with the dragonfly on the front. I'd like a second student text, since both ds and dd will be doing this together in an 11-week block. I've found a 2004 edition--same dragonfly cover--for a good price. Does anyone know if a different copyright year, but the same cover, would be similar enough for us to use? Thanks!
  10. okay, which one is the best for a great entry level bio course for 9th grade. was already to do the campbell, but now found out that its dated and the company is not updating it any longer. there is a big push for the miller/levine. is there a correct answer for this??? calling all "brains" on this one!! angel
  11. I'd gotten the Miller/Levine set but my ds preferred Campbell. Since dd is a lot younger, I'm now preparing to use ML Biology with my dd next year so lining up lab equipment. BTW we really liked the Biology Labs On-Line with Campbell Biology recommended by Kathy in Richmond and will use them again, but dd is still a bit young for them. Looking through the M/L labs, some seem quite interesting without a lot of fancy lab equipment and I'm wondering if people who have used this lab book could give tips about catching planarians hydras Daphnia and finding things like "auxin paste", glucose test strips, milk digestion aids, mushroom growing kits, agar for agar plates, bromthymol blue, and other items not common in the household without spending a fortune on a Labpaq... In one of the labs, students examine planarians because the stem cells that collect at the site of an injury allow them to regenerate body parts and even grow two heads :001_huh: Also looking for any other helpful tips from people who have done the labs. Thanks! Joan
