Life Science Origins & Scientific Theory

  • 1 Year Science
  • 1 Credit
  • 10th-12th Grade

Features: Each suggested weekly homeschool schedule has three easy-to-manage lessons which combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities including an expanded glossary for each book. Designed to allow your student to be independent, materials in this resource are divided by section so you can remove quizzes, tests, and answer keys before beginning the coursework. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials as needed in order to best work within your educational program.

Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the study guide worksheets. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. Younger students may be given the option of taking open book tests.

Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M-W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M-F. Simply adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

Course Description

This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.

Chapter Objectives: These are presented in a way that is perfect for students to answer in a notebook – having students copy the question and then answer in the notebook is even more helpful by putting the question and answer in proximity and context. These notes in combination with the chapter tests are excellent resources for preparing for sectional tests (if given) or a final exam at the end. Chapter objective can be shared with a student or students, and then kept in a binder for future use if needed. Students are also encouraged to keep these questions and answers for pre-test studying.

Chapter Exams: For each chapter, an A, B and C test is provided in the teacher’s manual. Here is how you can extend your use of this material:

  • Option 1: You can follow the instructions in the book which are designed for one student. Or you can modify one of the following options for your student, and still have enough course materials to use the course multiple times.
  • Option 2: You could have up to three students taking the course at the same time, with each student having different tests if you assign each Test A to one student, Test B to another, and Test C to a third. This insures each student has a different test and educators can better assess each student’s individual understanding of the material at each point. Alternate sectional and final exams are included in this manual for your convenience.
  • Option 3: Adjust the testing and materials to your educational program. For example, each chapter test could be used as additional worksheet material for one or more students, with only the included sectional exams to be administered.

Or even just use a final exam for testing comprehension of material if you wish to assign several essays, project, or a term paper based on individual questions of your choice from the exams and objectives or based on a chapter topic. This option would allow for additional writing and research opportunities and for some students, while engaging them more fully in comprehension and application of knowledge for this educational material.

Sectional Exams: If used for a single student, a combination of “B” tests from the teacher’s manual form the basis of a sectional exam. Alternate sectional exams are included in this package to give you added flexibility in using this course per your own educational program needs whether are teaching one or multiple students at one time, or for future use.

Final Exam: “C” tests form a 190 page final exam if you are using the book per its instructions. If you are choosing one of the alternate options discussed, you will find an alternate final exam in this packet for your convenience.
