Completely revised and updated, the second edition of Apologia’s The Human Body will prepare your student for college-level science as well as life beyond the classroom. With dramatic new illustrations and photos, clearer explanations, and enhanced readability, this advanced biology course allows your high school student to study independently while mastering the anatomy and physiology of the human body.
Advanced Anatomy and Physiology
The Human Body, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made 2-book Set is our advanced biology course. Combined with
Exploring Creation With Biology
, it gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. In other words, these two courses together cover the entire "advanced placement" (AP) curriculum. In order to take this course, the student MUST have completed a first-year biology course AND a first-year chemistry course. It covers both the anatomy and the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail.
Apologia: Setting the Standard
Without a doubt, Apologia has been setting standards for science textbooks for years. If you have ever doubted the thoroughness of a science text, one glance at these large textbooks will allay all fears! If your child thrives on detailed explanations and lots of information, Apologia is a great place to start.
Written For Christian Homeschoolers
The full color illustrations and written-for-homeschoolers text have immediate appeal. On closer look, the Christian worldview provides a solid foundation. I believe that a scientist who grasps the God of creation will have a tremendous head start as he moves onward into research and development, treating patients, or further study.
A Word Of Warning
These books are not for every student. They are massive, detailed and require a fair amount of math. A student who does not yet excel at math or will be overwhelmed by the textbook format may lose their zeal for science if forced to proceed down this track. Instead, we suggest looking at
the Paradigm Curriculum
for a gentler approach that will feed their interest without overwhelming them.
Apologia Is Perfect For…
…the student who loves science and isn't scared by math. He or she may want to pursue a career in the field, proceed to college, or simply satisfy their thirst for knowledge. Many homeschool families have found these to be a cornerstone of their student's higher education and we are sure you'll find them a worthy investment.
Student MUST have completed a
first-year biology course
first-year chemistry course
This 2-Book Set Includes:
The high-quality hardcover student text contains all student material, study questions, laboratory exercises, and module study guides with color photos and illustrations. The softcover solutions-and-tests manual contains tests, test solutions, and answers to the module study guides. Because of the differences between first and second editions, students in a group setting cannot use both. The second edition of our Human Body course includes the following enhanced features:
High-quality color illustrations
More in-depth discussions and explanations of concepts
Online resources that explore concepts in more detail
Greater emphasis on connecting creation to the Creator
NOTE: The optional Kaplan Anatomy Coloring Book is not included though the textbook does assign activities from the coloring book.
For those of you who want to know,
the reproductive system is covered in great detail at the end of this book. Most students at this level will need the information, but if you are looking for a more discrete approach, we'd suggest considering
Precepts of Anatomy and Physiology
From the publisher:
Advanced Biology in Creation: The Human Body, 2nd Edition is a college-prep course that provides an advanced study of the human body’s 11 organ systems. This 2nd edition has updated discussions and photographs, as well as new content. If a student completes the entire course, including documenting in a lab notebook all of the labs, experiments, and dissections, it could be counted as an honors course. This course prepares students to take the Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests. The course provides the student with a solid background in advanced biology and is presented in a readable, conversational tone.
The following list of improvements apply to all of our 2nd Edition books:
Dr. Wile has been answering student questions on each of these courses for seven years or more. Those questions have allowed him to realize what sections of the books could be written more clearly. Thus, these editions of our courses are even more understandable than the first editions!
The student text has graphic icons that tell the student when there is a related multimedia presentation on the optional companion CD.
There are course websites that have links to materials which provide extra help as well as interesting news related to each field.
There are cumulative tests in the solutions and tests manual if the parent/teacher wants to give the student quarterly, semester, or final exams.
The tests in the solutions and tests manual contain a point system that aids the parent/teacher in grading the tests.
Finally, even though the module tests are found in the solutions and tests manual (so that the parent/teacher always has a copy of them), a second set of tests is also provided in a perforated booklet. This will allow the student to be given the tests without referring to the solutions and tests manual.
Because of the differences between the first and second editions, students in a group setting cannot use both. They must all have the same edition. Because of this, the first edition of the course will still be available for those in schools or support groups that use the first edition.
