Apologia

I have written extensive reviews of the Apologia curriculum by Jay Wile in my educator's handbook, Teaching Science from a Christian Worldview. Although about 90 to 95% of the information is correct, many of their texts contain the usual issues related to flood geology and astronomy.

That being said... I do want to say a positive word about a few of their texts. The advantage of Apologia is that they are specifically designed for the homeschool context. They are conversational in style and they offer support and supplies for the lab experiments. And not all of their texts contain young-earth ideas. Topics like physics, chemistry, and anatomy aren't generally a problem.

For this reason, some of you might want to check out some of those options. I've added them on the curriculum pages (K-5 and Grades 9-12).
