Full Course CD Rom is a complete multimedia course (not a supplement). This version of the course has all of the information found in the print version, PLUS multimedia add-ons such as animations, videos (which do not replace lab experiments), narrations and audio pronunciation guides. The student reads the text from the screen and follows links to multimedia enhancements. The program runs in Internet Explorer, which is included on the CD.
A Systematic Introduction to the Sciences
This course is designed to be a student’s first systematic introduction to the sciences. Although it can be used for eighth grade (especially if the student has recently left the public schools), it is typically used best in the seventh grade. The course covers such topics as the scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, paleontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Its scope, therefore, is quite wide. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household items.
Apologia: Setting the Standard
Without a doubt, Apologia has been setting standards for science textbooks for years. If you have ever doubted the thoroughness of a science text, one glance at these large textbooks will allay all fears! If your child thrives on detailed explanations and lots of information, Apologia is a great place to start.
Written For Christian Homeschoolers
The full color illustrations and written-for-homeschoolers text have immediate appeal. On closer look, the Christian worldview provides a solid foundation. I believe that a scientist who grasps the God of creation will have a tremendous head start as he moves onward into research and development, treating patients, or further study.
A Word Of Warning
These books are not for every student. They are massive, detailed and require a fair amount of math. A student who does not yet excel at math or will be overwhelmed by the textbook format may lose their zeal for science if forced to proceed down this track. Instead, we suggest looking at the Paradigm Curriculum for a gentler approach that will feed their interest without overwhelming them.
Apologia Is Perfect For…
…the student who loves science and isn't scared by math. He or she may want to pursue a career in the field, proceed to college, or simply satisfy their thirst for knowledge. Many homeschool families have found these to be a cornerstone of their student's higher education and we are sure you'll find them a worthy investment.
There is no Math prerequisite for this course.

The DVD has been really great for us because I am homeschooling four kids in three grades. It is nice to be able to use some outsourcing for some subjects! This DVD has been great because it explains things well for my son. It is a great addition to the rest of the program.
Computer based program that provides a lecture and some video examples and illustrations. Student must complete a study guide as he goes through and a lab. Labs are often shown on video so you can check your results. My son seems to like it. The labs are usually simple with household items. It is not an easy program. Seems very detailed so far but he is learning and retaining a lot.
