Apologia or BJU Science for Applied Thinking


Recommended Posts



We are starting 7th grade this next year and I am struggling with our science choice. 


For those that have used the upper levels of BJU and Apologia science, which curriculum did you feel did a better job of teaching applied thinking? 


Which curriculum did your child seem to retain long term?


I do not want a curriculum that focuses on rote memorization (memorize and plug it into the answers), but a curriculum that actually applies scientific principles and makes the student think about how these principles are used in the curriculum's problems, labs, and applications.  I am more concerned with my student's learning the principles that they can retain and apply to their lives as facts without application tend to be quickly forgotten.


Thank you for your input!
