The student text for Exploring Creation with Biology, Apologia's
award-winning, college-prep biology course, provides a detailed
introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. The
high-quality hardcover book contains all student material, study
questions, laboratory exercises, and module study guides with color
photos and illustrations.
This course is designed to be the student’s first high school science
course and is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed
introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily
emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a
strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom
classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology,
molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems.
It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation.
Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared
for a tough university biology course.
