    This course is for your visual learners who need high school credit in Chemistry. Wes Olson, the host of Biology 101, will take you on a journey through the history of chemistry along with what the study of chemistry is all about. This course is divided into nineteen 20-45 minute segments and examines the world of chemistry, the periodic table, important characters in the field of chemistry, the essentials of chemistry such as neutrons, isotopes, ions, compounds, molecules, and balancing chemical equations, an explanation of the elements – non-metals, poor metals, transition metals, rare earth & radioactive metals, and the future of chemistry. This is a 4 DVD set that has a running time of 10 hours, 55 minutes along with PDF files for the guidebook, accreditation booklet, and an extended periodic table.

    To get started with this program, you will want to print off the PDF files for the guidebook, periodic table and accreditation schedule, or take them somewhere to have them printed (the guidebook is over 120 pages). Students will be starting a chemistry notebook for this program in which they will write their research and reports. You will want to read ahead in the guidebook so you can gather and prepare needed items for the next lesson, mini-labs, and reports. The guidebook also allows the student to review information covered in the lessons along with quizzes and discussions questions. Mini-labs are demonstrated in the lessons and are performed with items from around your house or are easily accessible. I think the labs are much better and meatier than those found in Biology 101 and would do a much better job of meeting the high school credit. ~ Donna

    Students watch as the instructor, Wes Olson, explains the definition of life and takes you through the days of Creation and the specimens created on those days. In order, you will learn about plants, water animals, flying creatures, land animals, and mankind, and wrap it all up with lessons about genetics. There are 4 DVDs for a total running time of 4 ½ hours. The author describes this course as a “super-condensed, fun-filled, fascinating overview of the world of biology.” If you grasp the basics taught in this program, you’ll have a solid understanding of biology. The 4th disc contains the PDF files. High school credits are based on hours spent on a course of study, and 120-180 hours constitutes one credit. This course totals 135 hours if you follow the accreditation schedule. You could add dissection labs or microscope labs for more content. Note that the activities in this course are simple labs like identifying plants and animals or watching a fish, so if you live in a state which requires lab sciences for high school credit you will need to make some additions.

    Have you been longing for a high school science course written like the Life of Fred math curriculum? Story format? Tongue in cheek humor? Cute little sidebar comments and rabbit trails that keep you reading? Dr. Stanley Schmidt has done it – Life of Fred Chemistry! Get your high school credit for chemistry in a very non-traditional way. The goal of Dr. Schmidt’s chemistry course is to teach you the “really basic stuff – such as the chemical symbol for carbon is C and that organic compounds are those that contain carbon” because to be a “well-educated adult, you probably don’t need to learn what a racemic mixture means.”

    The story begins at the chem lab down the hall from Fred’s math class when Joe didn’t follow proper lab safety and gets hurt (I don’t want to give away too much of the story). Through this scenario, students will learn about lab safety and the story proceeds from there as students learn about the size of gold atoms; weighing an atom; mass vs. weight; standard temperature; mole; scientific method and much more as the story unfolds.

    There are 36 short chapters and each concludes with Your Turn to Play. This is a set of questions (including math problems) to make sure you understand each chapter’s concepts. Complete solutions are found on the reverse side of the Your Turn to Play page. Note: there are no tests or labs to accompany this course. If you really want to do this course but need it to be a lab science, you could add the MicroChem Experiment Lab Kit (#020028). This self-contained lab kit comes with the chemicals needed and complete instructions (since no labs come in the Life of Fred Chemistry text). If you feel confident in your lab abilities, you could add the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments (#027801) or 150 Captivating Chemistry Experiments Using Household Substances (#005436). Either of these books would allow you to add labs using familiar substances rather than hard-to-access chemicals. Dr. Schmidt recommends the use of a scientific calculator with the keys sin, cos, log, and ln. These are inexpensive calculators and we have one in the Rainbow Resource inventory that meets his ‘key’ recommendation, #041918.

    Algebra is always a prerequisite to doing chemistry; this course is no exception. The math begins on page 1 of the text with simplifying algebra equations. The math isn’t heavy, but you need to know your algebraic functions. Dr. Schmidt says that you need enough beginning algebra to understand basic algebra concepts.

    Dr. Schmidt believes that if chemistry is taught right, it can be a lot of fun! Do this as your stand-alone chemistry (with lab supplementation if desired) or read it alongside your chemistry curriculum to add that humorous element and have fun! ~ Donna

    While new homeschool curriculums crop up fairly often for history, science and language arts, it's a rarity that a new homeschool health program is developed! Author Michele Spadafora has done an incredible job in pulling together this easy-to-use, thoroughly Christian P.E. and nutrition course that incorporates weekly lessons in "faith, fitness and fuel." It's an 18-week course that includes three segments on each of those "building blocks" per week, with tests included after every 3rd or 4th week and lots of helpful and inspiring video content as well. Scheduling works most naturally if you do health three days per week for one semester. Each week includes three topical reading segments (each about two pages in length), questions for the student, space to write goals for all three areas for the week, and space to journal about the week. "Faith" reading assignments focus on a biblical message, typically a goal that we could all work towards in our relationship with the Lord. These include: giving God control, replacing stress with peace, prayer, worship, loving others, serving others, making disciples, and more. Scripture references are sprinkled throughout the text, and several questions typically follow the reading. "Fitness" readings focus on the practical and include the benefits of exercising, frequency of exercising, warm-ups and cool-downs, proper form, weight loss basics, core strength, exercise gear, etc. "Fuel" readings focus on nutrition, like eating portions and proportions, understanding food labels, the importance of breakfast, avoiding sugar, the importance of whole grains, eating healthy snacks, avoiding diet mistakes, understanding eating disorders, and more. Readings on fitness and fuel typically do not have questions for the student, but are always followed by a space to write a goal for the week. The tests are fairly short and made up entirely of multiple-choice questions (an answer key for these is included at the end of the book).

    The video content is one of my favorite aspects of the program. It not only allows the author to "talk to" the student via video, but it also provides a way to demonstrate proper exercise form, workout ideas, or cooking technique. There are 32 short videos that complement the content in the book, and prompts to view them are found at the end of the readings. Students are also directed to several "Burst" videos throughout the program. These videos are about ten minutes in length and, just like the name suggests, these offer short energetic workouts to get the blood pumping. These are also found on the author's website. A DVD is also included with the book which features three full-body workouts, each about a ½-hour in length. The workout routines are fast-moving, yet simple enough to follow along with and feature upbeat Christian music from a variety of contemporary Christian artists. No fancy gear is required; while exercise bands make an appearance in several of the workout videos, and weights and exercise balls are discussed in the book, most fitness routines do not require any equipment. Whether you use the routines included or your own fitness program, the student is asked to work out at least three times a week, outside of specific assignments from the book.

    This easy-to-implement program would be perfect to do together as a family. The readings are fairly short and easy for students at different ability levels to understand. Technical details on nutrition and fitness are kept to a minimum, and the fitness routines and exercises will appeal equally to girls and boys. Compared to a full-year health course, you won't find nearly as much content on the human body or physiology here; the emphasis is truly on practical knowledge and motivation to stay fit. It would make sense to incorporate the nutritional information into the whole family's diet as well. The text is designed as a consumable, but if your students all write in their own journals or notebooks, you could use the text as a family. Christian families will especially appreciate the emphasis on building your faith while you build your physical endurance. 171 pgs, pb. – Jess

    What a wealth of information you have at your fingertips in these books! They're designed to include all the basic, important concepts vital to a full understanding of each subject, broken down into small, manageable chunks to help any student understand the subject better, and improve their grades along the way. Each chapter covers a broad biological concept, such as "Homo Sapiens: A Special Vertebrate," further subdivided into smaller body systems such as skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, circulatory and more. The chapters are fairly lengthy, and cover a wide range of topics, from the branches of biology, to cell chemistry, classification systems, basic chemical reactions, bacteria/viruses, the protists, fungi, green plants, invertebrates, chordates, humans, nutrition, diseases and the immune system, heredity/genetics, ecology, and evolution. Most evolutionary information is contained within one chapter, so you can easily skip over it - or use it as an opportunity to contrast current evolutionary thought against creationist theories!. Black and white illustrations complement the chapter information, providing charts, illustrations of organisms, life cycles, and more. Following each chapter is a series of study and review questions, including short answer, multiple choice, vocabulary, true/false, and long answer, as well as a short section on how this information pertains to real life skills in the field of a biologist, and a short chronology of the famous scientists whose work is featured in that chapter. At 370 pages, there is a lot of good, solid information here, and can be used as a backbone to a biology curriculum fleshed out with experiments and further reading, or as a handy reference to make sure you don't leave any gaps in your studies. After reviewing this book, I felt that I could have used it even in college to get some more background on some concepts that they breeze through rather quickly in college biology!
