Committed to providing every student with a Christ-centered education AoE comes along side parents to equip students to be successful and influential in their families, community, and the world, discerning the truth of God’s Word in their lives.
Beginning with an introduction to why we do science, the Physical Science Student Text, 5th ed., gradually builds the student’s understanding of physics concepts in a logical sequence. Beginning with classical mechanics, the text progresses through work and energy, wave phenomena, electricity and magnetism, and light and optics. These transition naturally into the chemistry topics, beginning with the atomic model, then to elements and compounds, chemical reactions, and finishing with solutions, and acids, basis, and salts. Every chapter shows by example why the subject matter is relevant to a Christian worldview of science.
In the Biology, students will see God’s power and glory in creation as they learn about cellular biology, genetics, taxonomy, microbiology, botany, zoology, and human anatomy. When studying topics such as Creation and evolution, human cloning, abortion, and stem cell research, students are pointed to Scripture as the ultimate authority and are encouraged to develop a biblical perspective about these topics
Chemistry, 4th ed., gives students the tools to build an understanding of atomic structure, chemical composition, and chemical reactions. Throughout the course, students will put these tools to work in different fields of chemistry in ways that can show them the impact that chemistry can have to help people and to wisely use God’s world to glorify Him. This new edition features new content about semiconductors and nuclear chemistry as well as additional biblical worldview-shaping sections that help students to think through common debates among scientists.
Physics introduces students to the world of forces, movement, mechanics, and energy in an engaging and clearly written textbook. It also lays the foundations of electricity, magnetism, and optics, and stresses a logical problem-solving approach with many examples and diagrams. Students will put their math skills to use in a derivative approach.
Your students will see how physics is used to solve important problems that help preserve human life and vastly improve the quality of our lives. These applications make for engaging and stimulating classroom discussions. Students will also work directly with real-world data sets to model physical phenomena that gives them a much better understanding of and appreciation for the orderliness of God”s creation. These activities help students build proper scientific paradigms founded on biblical principles.
Presented as an algebra-based physics course. Two years of algebra and geometry are recommended as a prerequisite. The second year of algebra may be taken concurrently.
