From Our Homeschooling Family to Yours
Biology 101 was developed and hosted by Wes Olson, Multnomah School of the Bible graduate (now Multnomah University), veteran filmmaker of 20 years, and homeschooling father. Wes guides you through the world of “biological science,” unraveling and decoding terms and ideas. This online course of study will help you fully integrate the world of biology into an accurate Biblical worldview.
Your Complete High School Level Biology Course?
It depends—homeschooling families’ approaches to teaching and learning are far from cookie-cutter in design. For some families, this set of DVDs— which are very comprehensive in scope—will be enough to provide a thorough grounding in biology.
Other families may prefer to use these DVDs as a starting point, one that provides their student with the correct foundation; an eye and mind-opening overview of biology, before beginning textbook study. A 12-page Course Accreditation Program booklet is included in (digital PDF) format, for those who want the DVDs to form the foundation of a full school year's Biology course. In either case, students will find the series captivating and informative. In fact, the entire family might enjoy watching each segment together and engaging in lively discussions about the material.
What Does Biology 101 Contain?
The 4 DVD set contains a coherent, easy to understand and faith-based comprehension of the world around us. Many modern biologists ignore God's revelation of His creation. Biology 101 presents the study of biology following the actual creation days revealed in the book of Genesis. The 9 individual segments provide a thoroughly Biblical framework and most of them run from 30-45 minutes each. An interesting and fact-filled 114-page Guidebook with quizzes covering each segment is included as a printable (digital PDF) on disc D.
