Timberdoodle's Review
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.

The Last Course Before High School Biology
Exploring Creation with Physical Science Full Course CD Rom is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology. Thus, we generally recommend it as an 8th grade course. However, your student can also use it for their 9th grade course work. The text discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton’s Laws, gravity, and astrophysics.

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.

Math Prerequisite: In order to be able to understand this text, the student needs to have completed 7th Grade Math.

    Exploring Creation with Physical Science CD

    I loved this curriculum! I wish I would have chosen to do a book instead because my son did not like to read it book on the computer. It hurt his eyes. However the curriculum was amazing! There are simple experiments in almost every chapter that use ordinary household things. In my opinion this curriculum gave my son a well rounded view of science. He learned why creation makes sense scientifically yet at the same time teaching him what many others believe about science such as evolution. I believe this curriculum prepared him to hold his ground on a scientific level when he is confronted with questions from others.


    Love the CD version! So much better than just a textbook!!
