Overview of Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, Textbook
This softcover student textbook, Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, is designed to be the student's first high school science course. It is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology.

In this course, your student will:

-See the evidence of God's creation as they learn scientific principles
-Conduct experiments in a methodical way that prepares them not just for future classes, but for life
-Take personal notes, conduct and record experiments, and be able to interpret results
-Develop skills to think through and beyond the textbook materials, and be able to create their own experiments from concept to interpretation of results
-Further develop skills in their own learning style and how they best process, record, study, and retain information learned
-Be able to hold a logical discussion on God and science based on facts and beliefs


What's Inside Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition, Textbook?

-Updated content to present the most current science
-A reorganized structure of the information, which helps students logically progress through their biological studies
-Experiments which have been updated or replaced, and the addition of new experiments
-New illustrations and infographics that help students break down and visually digest difficult concepts, in addition to updated images and illustrations
-New content, including a new section on photosynthesis and a new section on diseases.
-An overhaul of the section on genetics, including more information on DNA
-Experiments, Hands-On Activities, and Topics in Exploring Creation with Biology, 3rd Edition

In this 3rd Edition, all experiments have been updated or replaced, and new ones added. The experiments come in three types: microscope labs, dissection labs, and household labs. Household labs use only common household equipment. The microscope labs, however, require a microscope and several prepared and blank slides, while the dissection labs require an additional dissection kit with specimens.
