Move over Bob Jones & Abeka; there's a new sheriff in town.

I recall the early years of homeschooling, the 80s, when good curriculum was hard to find. Then Saxon math came along and revolutionized math for those parents and children who hated math. What Saxon did for math; Jay Wile has done for science. Except I'd say Jay Wile has done it better. This is science by a scholar who knows how to break down the complicated concepts to the level of the common man. Nothing is lost in the translation except, perhaps, a previously poor attitude toward science by the student. Children who hated science before will fall in love with Dr. Jay Wile's way of teaching. The experiments are fun & use readily available items in the home one *actually* has on hand. He's won this home schooling family over for good. Move over Bob Jones and Abeka; there's a new sheriff in town.

Excellent Curriculum

This is my first year back to homeschooling and as my twins are in sixth grade and stronger in math/science than I am, I was nervous about keeping up with them and challenging them. This textbook was perfect for us! It is written TO the student and presents both evolutionist and creationist views. (The author does not fail to point out that all textbooks are biased in one way or another and admits that he believes, (as we do) that the case for creation is stronger) I have learned so much this year--the excitement is contagious. (I was only taught evolution in my science schooling) I have even facilitated the labs for our co-op and feel totally comfortable. As I mentioned, the book and labs are written TO the student. All I have to do is encourage them to have fun learning! We're looking forward to moving on to the Physical Science next year.

Makes Scientists of Science-Haters!

I do not have praise enough for Jay Wile's Science books. This book sets the stage for all the further Apologia courses with an introduction to science history, the Scientific Method, the correct process of scientific experiments, an analyzation of scientific dating processes, and the overall benefits of science via introduction to various branches. It's difficult to articulate how skillfully Wile unveils a student's OWN recognition of truth...not the student's OWN TRUTH, but his recognition of THE truth through carefully sequenced experiments or revelation of information. Wile guides through each module with a completely understandable dialogue and completely achievable experiments uncommon to most textbooks. When a student can read with understanding, perform experiments with accuracy and comprehension, discern intended outcomes through their own deductive reasoning, they are going to remember it! When a student succeeds, they are more likely to ENJOY it!! This overview course whets the appetite for more study and more than adequately prepares the student to approach the successive books with mastery of the basic process of scientific study. ONE minor warning: The first chapter is initially boring and somewhat intimidating. It gives a quick-shot overview of the history of science and covers a lot of ground and a lot of information in short order. We feared the whole of the book would be the same. We eventually discovered some very necessary information emerging throughout the module...primarily an explanation of how the church gradually became considered an enemy of science and how essential the church was in its development. I just mention this as a caution not to give up with the first module!!

I am a (...)home schooler and I love this book.

At first I wasn't too interested in science. I never even knew that there was another science side. I thought that there was only Evolution. At first I thought "eh" with science, but I was actually lovin' it when Mom bought this book for me! If a parent or kid is reading this, I recommend buying it: It is very good and it will give you a choice: Believe Uniformitarians, or Catastrophists. Those two words you will learn about when you buy this book.

Top quality science text book.

Very complete and organized. Solid foundation of general science from a Christian perspective, without being sappy. Goes into The progress of Science,Scientific Inquiry, How to Analyze and Interpret Experiments, Applied Science, History of Life: Archaeology,Geology, and Paleontolegy. The Fossil Record, Uniformitarianism and Catastrophism, What is Life? The Human Body-Digestive System,Resiratory and Circulatory Systems,Lymphatic,Endocrine, and Urinary Systems, Nervouse Sytems. Energy and Life. All Experiments can be done in the home using house hold items, and have organized supply lists for each Module.A+++++ Curriculum.
