My Father's World


7th through 12th Grade Science

(Science for grades K-6 is included in our curriculum packages.)

Exploring Creation With General Science

This course is designed to be a student's first systematic introduction to the sciences. Although it can be used for eighth grade (especially if the student has recently left the public schools), it is typically used best in the seventh grade. The course covers such topics as the scientific method, designing experiments, simple machines, archaeology, geology, paleontology, biology, and human anatomy and physiology. Its scope, therefore, is quite wide. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household items.

Students who do not have a lot of experience taking tests which require them to truly master the course material might have trouble with this course at first. However, the study skills required for this course are absolutely essential for high school and beyond. It is prudent, therefore, for the student to learn these skills now rather than put them off until later.

Format: 2 volume set:

The first book, hardbound, is the student textbook, which contains all student material, study questions, lab exercises, and module study guides with color photos and illustrations.

The second book, softbound, is the solutions and tests manual, which contains answers to module study guides, tests, and test solutions.

My Father's World has written lesson plans that give daily assignments (four days a week) for reading, labwork, and the optional CD. This makes it much easier for students to complete the course independently. We even include reminders to gather or purchase needed items such as balloons or vinegar. The lesson plans are included free with the purchase of the package.

Exploring Creation With Physical Science

This course is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology. Thus, we generally recommend it as an 8th grade course. However, if your student was recently in public school, he or she might need to wait until 9th grade to use it. The course discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. There are many hands-on experiments to do, and they all use household chemicals and supplies. It is an excellent course for preparing the student to take a college-prep high school science curriculum.

Format: 2 volume set:

The first book, hardbound, is the student text, which contains all student material, on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides. Color photos and illustrations.

The second book, softbound, is the solutions and tests manual, which contains answers to chapter study guides, tests, and test solutions. Black & White.

The optional multimedia companion CD contains video clips, pronunciation of vocabulary words, and other useful information to enrich the course.

Exploring Creation With Biology, 2nd Edition

Exploring Creation with BiologyThe course covers topics such as body systems, classifications of species, the chemistry of life, ecosystems, and genetics. Students also take a look at the theory of evolution including macroevolution and microevolution. During this study of God's creation of living organisms, the student will have the opportunity (with the optional dissection kit) to dissect an earthworm, perch, crawfish, and frog. Additional hands-on experiments are used to involve the student in this fascinating study of biology and to prepare him for college classes.

Note: Many of the biology experiments use household items. To complete optional dissection and/or microscope labs, you will need to purchase additional materials. Ordering information is provided in the My Father's World lesson plans.

Exploring Creation With Chemistry, 3rd Edition
(Prerequisite: Algebra 1)

Exploring Creation with Chemistry3rd edition coming in September. This course is designed to be a first-year high school chemistry course and gives the students a rigorous foundation in chemistry, in order to prepare him or her for a college-level course. The course covers significant figures, unites, classification, the mole concept, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, acids and bases, redox reactions, solutions, atomic structure, Lewis structures, molecular geometry, the gas laws, and equilibrium. While the laboratory experiments are designed for the home, some of them are easier with specialized equipment. All of the chemicals used in this course consist of household materials such as table salt, baking soda, dish soap, vinegar, etc. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university chemistry course.

Exploring Creation With Physics
(Prerequisites: Geometry, Algebra 2)

Exploring Creation with PhysicsThis is a two-book set that includes both the student textbook and the Solutions and Test Manual.

This college-prep physics course is designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent. It provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis; this text is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton's laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism.

The optional multimedia companion CD contains video clips, pronunciation of vocabulary words, and other useful information to enrich the course.

The Human Body - Advanced Biology
(Prerequisites: Biology, Chemistry)

Exploring Creation with PhysicsIncludes the student textbook (hardcover), the Solutions and Test Manual (soft cover), and The Anatomy Coloring Book. The Human Body is an advanced biology course, covering the anatomy and physiology of the human body's eleven organ systems in detail.

This college-prep biology course is designed for the student who has completed biology and chemistry. Completing both Exploring Creation With Biology and The Human Body gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course, covering a typical "advanced placement" (AP) curriculum, and preparing students for the AP (Advanced Placement) or CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests. The Anatomy Coloring Book is not a child's coloring book! Use of this book is one of the best ways to learn and memorize anatomical details and nomenclature. Many college and medical students use this book in their study of human anatomy.

Should I place my academically struggling 7th Grader in Apologia General Science or should I wait a year?
My Father's World recommends that all 7th graders use Apologia General Science, unless they have learning issues that will significantly limit their success. In order to prepare for high school, students need to begin learning independent study skills using a traditional textbook. Parents can help their students with this transition by guiding their students through the first few chapters of the book. Point out important information that is bolded, italicized, and in text boxes. Help them understand how to find information to answer chapter review questions and prepare for traditional tests.

If the pace of this course becomes overwhelming for your student, you may choose to complete the course during 7th and 8th grade at a slower pace. Exploring Creation with Physical Science is then completed in 9th grade. In many states Physical Science will count for high school science credit.
