Upper School Science
Life Science provides a thorough overview of the life sciences in a new two-volume set with larger formatting and single-column text. Students will explore the living world from cellular biology and genetics to zoology and ecology.
Earth Science guides students in an examination of God’s handiwork. Affirming the young earth creationist view of the Earth’s history and disproving the evolutionary views pervading the scientific community and modern culture, the science educational materials presents an engaging study of scientific philosophies and models, meteorology, geology, and oceanography.
Biology will take students on a quest to understand God’s living world, from the microscopic world of the cells to the macroscopic world of plants, animals, and the human body. Clear scientific images help them picture the cell’s workings, and galleries of photos in every chapter give them a sense of the classification of life. Case studies, webquests, lab activities, and questions help students think like scientists and understand that biology makes sense from a biblical perspective.
Chemistry will give students the tools to build an understanding of atomic structure, chemical composition, and chemical reactions. Throughout the course, students will put these tools to work in different fields of chemistry in ways that can show them the impact that chemistry can have to help people and to wisely use God’s world to glorify Him. This contians content about semiconductors and nuclear chemistry as well as additional biblical worldview-shaping sections that help students to think through common debates among scientists.
