278461: Discovering Design with ChemistryDiscovering Design with Chemistry
By Dr. Jay L. Wile / Berean Builders Publishing, Inc

Discovering Design with Chemistry is a high-school college-prep chemistry course by Dr. Jay Wile. Designed for homeschooled students to use independently, this course features at-home experiments, a simple format, and thorough text that provides extensive coverage of chemistry from a Christian, creation-based perspective.

This course includes sixteen chapters that together cover topics such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, physical change, chemical change, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Concepts are woven together with their mathematical applications to help students learn to think like chemists.

In the Discovering Design with Chemistry textbook, each of the sixteen chapters contains the main text with important information and definitions to be memorized highlighted. "Comprehension Check" questions and examples are included throughout, and each chapter ends with a review, which is to be completed before taking the chapter test (included in the test book). Each chapter has at least one experiment; forty-six experiments are included in total, and students will average three experiments every two weeks.

042406: Science in the Beginning

Science in the Beginning
By Dr. Jay L. Wile / Berean Builders Publishing, Inc

Science in the Beginning is an engaging, exciting, hands-on, multilevel elementary resource that is the first in a planned series of books by Dr. Jay Wile.

Introducing scientific concepts in the context of history, the days of creation are used as a structure through which a wide variety of scientific topics are introduced, including: light, energy conservation, air & water, botany, the solar system, zoology, and some aspects of human anatomy and physiology.

A total of 90 lessons are included; 15 for every creative day in the Genesis account. The first 12 are "normal" lessons and the last 3 are challenge lessons. Depending on how much science you wish to teach in your homeschool, there are enough lessons to cover every other day for the length of a school year, or, you can finish the book by only doing two lessons a week (and skipping the challenge lessons).

Students will love the hands-on activity that begins each lesson. Most are experiments (that have been field-tested for homeschoolers!), and include step by step directions to keep you on track. As this curriculum was designed for all elementary-aged students to use together, the main lesson text takes a conversational, easy-to-read tone that all students can comprehend; illustrations and photographs are integrated throughout. Review assignments close the lesson; questions are grouped for "youngest, older, and oldest" students. Students are instructed to keep a notebook, and the activities include both drawing and writing type notebook assignments. For evaluation, the notebook or oral questions can be used; tests are not included, but are in the Helps & Hints book (sold-separately).

Experiments use common household goods, though for some items that may not be on-hand, a list is provided at the beginning of the book. A full materials list for each creation-day chapter is also included for easy preparation.

299 pages with glossary and index. Hardcover. Elementary Grades K-6.
