General Description

Apologia's science curriculum by Jay Wile teaches biology from a creationist viewpoint. This course is designed to be the student's first high school science course. Exploring Creation With Biology 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.

Please note that this course does not contain a discussion of human anatomy and physiology. Most college biology professors do not consider that to be a part of a solid, college-prep biology course. Students who take and understand this course will be very well prepared for a tough university biology course. The student text contains all student material, on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides. Color illustrations and diagrams. The two-book set includes the student text and the solutions manual.
