This course is a semester-long (17-week) exploration of Biology. It is intended for high school students as their high school biology requirement.
✅ Creation Focus: Students will develop a strong defense for creation as evolutionary arguments will be explored and then dismantled by evidence for creative design.
✅ Dual Credit: This course is modeled after the CLEP Biology exam and will prepare students to take the test, obtain credits, and bypass college biology.
✅ Office Hours: Students can attend optional weekly office hours on Zoom reserved just for the people in the class.
✅ Learning Materials: Students will learn the material through short video lectures paired with rich imagery and slides. In every lesson, the slides from the videos are included for further study and review. Finally, entertaining review games, interactive simulations, and hands-on labs reinforce what was learned.
✅ Assessments: Student progress in the course is tracked with a weekly quiz. Once they have studied and feel ready, they take it. The quiz grades are averaged weekly, student progress can be tracked, and a letter grade can be given if desired. Quizzes are automatically graded.
✅ Optional Labs: Optional hands-on labs are available in the course. We have partnered with the company Home Science Tools to offer a custom lab kit. The lab needs to be purchased from them separately. Videos guiding students step-by-step through each lab are included in the course.
