Multimedia Companion CD Exploring Creation with Biology
Exploring Creation with Biology is designed to be the student’s first high school science course and is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology.
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.
Companion CD Rom Includes:
- Videos of experiments that the student would not be able to do on his or her own
- Animations used to explain some of the more difficult concepts in the course
- Pronunciations for the technical words in the course
- The textbook contains an icon of a hand holding a CD. Each time you see that icon in the book, you know that this CD contains multimedia related to the material being discussed at that point.

Apologia, great stuff! I have been very pleased with all of Apologia's materials. This CD isn't necessary, but is a bonus to have. Because of the price, I would recommend adding this to your science as a great visual and pronunciation guide.
I know it may seem like a splurge to get the CD after buying the textbook but it is helpful to bringing different concepts presented in the book to life. Animations and explanations deepen understanding, especially for students who don't love science or for visual/auditory learners.
