Any text that uses Lego figures to discuss genetics has earned the moniker "Friendly!" Friendly Biology, with its clear, colorful diagrams and abundant photos, introduces the world of biology to high-school students in a gentle, non-intimidating manner.
Written by a homeschooling husband and wife team, Friendly Biology covers topics such as mitosis and meiosis, genetics, taxonomy, ecology, an overview of all human body systems, and much more. With meaningful lessons and spot-on lab activities, Friendly Biology will not merely teach your teen biological terms and processes, but it should also give him an awe and respect for both the splendor and complexity of living things. We were especially pleased with their tasteful and yet complete discussion of human reproduction.
Friendly Biology is available in both a religious and non-religious version, with the difference being the removal of a few Christian worldview-based comments from the secular edition. Completing Friendly Biology and all the included labs provides your child with a year's high school credit in Biology.
The Friendly Biology Set includes the Textbook, Student Workbook, and the Tests and Solutions Manual. If you are teaching more than one student you will want an extra Workbook for each student. The Textbook and Tests and Solutions Manual are non-consumable.
