Unfortunately, a lot of homeschool parents feel intimidated whenever it comes to teaching their children upper level science. However, with Apolgia science by Dr. James Wile, you will have no issues nor will you feel intimidated.
Apologia science covers the following topics and grades:
7th grade: General Science8th grade: Physical Science (includes experiments with materials that are easy to find)9th grade: Biology (You can easily skip those experiments that require a microscope if you need to do so.)10th grade: Chemistry11th grade: Physics
They also offer advanced courses in:
Biology (The Human Body)Marine Biology ChemistryPhysics
These books are all decidedly Christian, very interesting and well written in a conversational tone. There are also experiments throughout the book that will help reinforce your child’s understanding of the concepts that are being taught. Ongoing support is also available. They have a phone number and email address where you can easily contact them. All of the book’s concepts are easily explained so that you won’t need to contact Apologia though.
In conclusion, Apologia science is an excellent curriculum that has withstood the test of time (and quite a few picky homeschool parents too). They have also received a thumbs up from homeschool children too.
