Class Description:

I will emphasize the scientific method, good lab procedures, and organizational skills (including note-taking and keeping an organized notebook). In class we will do approximately half lecture/discussion and half experiments, investigations, and hands-on activities.

Study cell biology, genetics, the history of life, microbiology, botany, zoology, ecology, and human anatomy and physiology, all within a biblical framework.

 

Homework:Out of class will be mostly reading the chapters and assigned exercises in the workbook, plus a small project each quarter. I will assign 2-3 hours of outside work per week.
Evaluation:Grades are given weekly. Grades are made up of class participation, daily work, homework, extra credit activities, and chapter quizzes. I use an online grade book that you can view your child’s grades or assignments anytime on the Internet. This is a great communication tool to view your child’s progress. A "Progress Report" will also be sent home each semester as well as an end of the year cumulative grade.
