The Student Notebook for Exploring Creation with Marine Biology course is specifically designed to help high school homeschool students be independent and take responsibility for their science studies.
Note-taking helps increase retention of information, review for tests, and record their thoughts as they connect the ideas presented in the textbook with their own ideas.
Taking good notes can distinguish between mastering a concept and not entirely understanding it. Good notes provide the following advantages:
Students stay focused on what they are reading.
Students pay closer attention, which will increase their retention.
Students have their own version of the text to review for tests.
Students learn to connect new information to what they already know.
Additionally, a Student Notebook helps students keep a carefully organized, detailed, and complete lab notebook, recording labs they conducted using proper scientific methodology.
Apologia Student Notebooks are specifically designed to help students be independent and take responsibility for their science studies. They gain and maintain their personal abilities to create structure and logic through note-taking.
The Student Notebook contains:
A suggested Daily Schedule
Instruction in the Cornell note-taking system

Lab report forms for each experiment in the text will help your student master the process of writing a complete lab report
Illustrations that are not found in the textbook ensure that the student is indeed learning all that they can from their labs
