Apologia Exploring Creation with General Science

Instructors: Anitta Charlson & TBA


**We will work our way through the book over the course of the fall and spring.  The students will be provided with a syllabus during the first class.**
What to bring to each class: Students should always bring their Apologia Exploring Creation with General Science textbook, a lab notebook, and a pencil to class. In addition, they will need to check their syllabus and the supplies lists in their textbook and bring the appropriate supplies needed for that week’s lab experiments, unless directed otherwise by their instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to be prepared for class with these supplies! Some experiments may need to be started at home and then brought to class - these are usually noted on the schedule.

Lab notebooks: Lab notebooks should be 3-ring binder with loose-leaf notebook paper with enough pages for the experiments for the school year.  Students will write a lab summary for each experiment they do, and each one should be on a separate sheet of paper. The name and number of the experiment should be set at the top as the title of the page.   A section for ‘data’ should be labeled. This is where the student will write down all the data that was compiled while completing the experiment. After this, a section entitled ‘summary’ should be made. Here the student will write a brief summary report of what was done and what he/she learned during this experiment.
