Exploring Creation with Biology-Set
The Exploring Creating with Biology-Set includes the Student Textbook and the Test and Solution Manual.
Exploring Creating with Biology assumes that God is the Creator of all life, not that life just happened or that one kind of animal evolved into a different kind of animal. While the creationist view is evident throughout the book, Chapter 9 is a 30+ page discussion of the Theory of Evolution compared to the Theory of Creation. The book is written specifically for use in a homeschool. The course is written in an easy-to-understand, conversational style, so that the instructor does not need previous knowledge in this subject. Nonetheless, it is a serious biology text; one of the co-authors was formerly a university science professor.
The book contains 16 chapters, or modules, discussing every topic you would expect in a high school biology course. Three types of lab exercises are included. First, household labs use only household equipment and should be done by all students. Second, microscope labs require the use of a 400x microscope and prepared slide set. Third, dissection labs require a dissection kit of instruments and specimens. The authors do not require the microscope and dissection labs to be done, although they believe that these are certainly beneficial. To make these labs more “do-able”, they have developed a slide set and a dissection kit to be used with this course. The student text includes all student reading, experiments, “On Your Own” exercises (with answers and discussion later in the chapter), and 15 to 25 “Study Guide” questions at the end of each chapter. The second book, Solutions and Tests contains 10 to 20 test questions for each chapter, answers to the test questions, and solutions to the “Study Guide” questions.
