The Master's Class High School Biology (student text) used alongside the Master's Class High School Biology Teacher Guide work together to bring the wonder of biblical creation and science together for homeschool students. This homeschool curriculum with labs begins with a review of chemical principles needed for biology, including the biology of water, and concludes with human origins.

This course provides important training and practice in developing skills involved in the study of biology, including observing and recognizing interactions and interdependencies of organisms in their natural environment, the use of a light microscope, dissection skills, and insights and recent advances in modern biology.

Through this study of biology, your high school student will learn how we are created in God’s image with an eternal destiny rather than being the sum product of natural laws acting upon atoms and molecules. This course reveals the variations in humans today had their roots in the DNA of two humans (Adam and Eve) and give glory to God for this wonder of life.

Course Objectives:

  • Investigate the core concepts of classical and modern biology
  • Become familiar with the meaning of key terms in biology
  • Explore the fundamental concepts of cell biology and important recent developments
  • Study the development of classical genetics and modern concepts in the expression of DNA and how it varies with age and changing environmental conditions
  • Learn the coordination and maintenance of the parts of an organism
  • Study the variety of life forms and how their roles are integrated in an ecosystem
  • Explore varied views of the origin of life and how the biblical narrative is consistent with what is observed in the study of biology
  • Conduct laboratory procedures that develop important skills and illustrate important concepts
  • Write lab reports each week to further develop writing skills in a scientific context

Course Includes:

Takes the Fear out of Homeschooling High School
Review by Nikki
I think many homeschooling moms have a certain amount of fear when it comes to homeschooling high school - at least when you are tackling it for the first time. This Biology course takes the fear right out of homeschooling high school - at least for Biology!

What I love most about this particular text is the marrying of God's creation and our Biblical worldview with modern science. Students will truly have the best of both worlds and be well-equipped to tackle high level sciences with confidence and a firm foundation in truth.

Each chapter is begins with "Objectives" - which give the student (and teacher) an overview of what they will get out of the chapter and "Words to Understand" - a vocabulary list for the chapter. Beautiful illustrations and photographs accompany well-written and informative text that is a pleasant read. Each chapter ends with an experiment specific to the reading in an effort to bring home the objectives through a hands-on activity.

If you purchase the Teacher's Guide (which I highly recommend), you will also have worksheets and lab report sheets for each chapter.

The course is rigorous enough to easily be a high school science and lab credit. With minor tweaking, it could definitely be used as an honors course.

Finally, as the mom of a student that desires to be a veterinarian, I feel this course will more than prepare her for the advanced sciences ahead. It is thorough, well-organized, and comprehensive.

We will definitely be using this next year as our high school biology course.
Beautiful Science Book
Review by Amanda
I am not a fan of teaching science, only because I have never learned science in a fun and Christian way. This textbook allows my kids to be able to sit down and learn in a simple format with beautiful color pictures. They love doing the experiments and everyone gathers around during that time.

Before I was scared of teaching biology to my high school student, and the upcoming kids, but now I look forward to it! Thank you MasterBooks for a great biology course that is fun!
Comprehensive Biology Course with a Christian Worldview
Review by HSKelly
Biology can be a complex subject to study. After all, when you are diving into the study of all living organisms, there's definitely a lot to grasp and take in. It's so important to find curriculum that is going to help students connect with what they are trying to learn. What I love about this particular Biology course from Master Books is that everything is taught from a Christian worldview. The lessons encompass God's living creation, while also coupling them with modern day advances in science, so students are getting the best of both worlds when it comes to the study of biology. This makes everything all the more fun and exciting!

Each chapter in the student text breaks down the main objectives for that lesson right in the beginning. The entire course encompasses a strong hands-on approach, which is great! While you initially have your reading portion of each lesson, it doesn't just stop there. After each lesson has been completed, a lab is tied in to bring everything together. I find this to be extremely important, especially with all the subject matter that the study of biology entails. Since there is a lot to take it, just reading text and trying to memorize everything may not be enough. That is why the course challenges students with these hands-on lab activities and real life practice, in turn, giving them a better understanding of what they're learning

This also fulfills a high school science (with lab) credit requirement, which is wonderful. The course is quite comprehensive covering topics that include, but not limited to cell systems, biomes, energy, ecosystems, genetics/DNA, animal/plant classifications, and human origins. Since this is biology from a Creation perspective, there are some discussions spread throughout the lessons about evolution in comparison to God's great design. These discussions offer living proof of the Lord's purposeful plan for all life forms. The text provides detailed (and logical) examples of how evolution just simply cannot be the reasoning behind many of the events that take place in the world of science. The author does a wonderful job at settling the debates with backed up evidence, which is fantastic! The course offers a well-rounded introduction to biology, providing a solid foundation on the study of all living organisms. It's an extremely helpful course to not only satisfy the requirement for a high school lab science, but also helps prepare students for future courses and studies in related subject matter.
A Perfect Resource
Review by Cristina, A Homeschool Mom
We've been homeschooling over ten years, with three kids in high school. All I can say is I wish we'd come across this resource years ago! Master Books makes learning hands-on, fun, and aligns with Scripture perfectly; even for our oldest students. This curriculum worked beautifully.

With easy to understand, enjoyable lessons, filled with labs in every chapter; our students thoroughly enjoyed their exploration of Biology more than they have with any other text. We can't say enough wonderful things about this resource.
