In this course, the publisher takes a bold approach by challenging popular theories through use of the scientific method, application of DNA, and recent research to point out strengths and weaknesses of scientific theories. Like all PAC courses, Biology may be completed in a classroom under guidance of a teacher, or through guided independent study with minimum student dependence on the teacher/proctor. The design of Biology texts and activities enables students to learn the material with or without oversight by an experienced science teacher. Lab projects are not required, but may easily be conducted as directed by the teacher/proctor. Laboratory experiments (actual or observations) may be added as needed to earn transcript credit. The Principles, Theories, and Precepts of Biology is laced with QR-Codes which can be scanned with a smartphone or tablet to access videos to further explain a topic or show an experiment. The videos are optional and students are not required to watch the videos to complete activities, quizzes, or tests.
The Principles, Theories, and Precepts of Biology is packaged in six soft-cover texts and six companion student activity books. This course is designed to satisfy most state requirements for one high school transcript credit. Students who complete the 90 lessons, 18 quizzes, and/or six chapter tests will have a strong foundation for college studies in science and theories about the origin of life.
NOTE: You can add our two chapters on Human Anatomy & Physiology to enable students to expand their Biology studies and/or select six of eight particular chapters needed to satisfy academic components stipulated by state standards for one transcript credit in Biology.
