Course Description: Empirical Science 3: General Biology. One of the basic divisions of natural beings is between those that live and those that do not. Biology is the study of living things. From the publisher's website: "The book starts at the atomic level and progresses to ever-larger scales: cells, genes, microorganisms, plants, animals, and human organ systems. . .. The final chapters of the book survey ecology and the theory of evolution.

As with Introductory Physics, General Biology incorporates math, history, and epistemology. The primary goal of the course is to elevate the students to a real mastery of the method and instruct them in the established concepts of biology. This is achieved by following the guidance of the Novare philosophy, embodied in their excellent books (see below): mastery, real robust labs, depth over breadth, and a Christian worldview. A secondary goal is to imbue the students with the attitudes of the true scientist: wonder, curiosity, humility, and joy in and zeal for truth. This is taught most fully through the example of the instructor. Finally, a last goal is to clearly present both the necessity and limits of empirical science, so that the students are prepared to grasp how it fits into the larger schema of wisdom presented in the TPT course sequence.

"I purchased Alpha Year last summer for my first grader, and we have so thoroughly enjoyed the program. My 2 and a half year old son even loves it!  He loves to recite the poetry and the history. What really astonished me, however, was his ability to apply the information he learned from the songs. I was talking to my husband about our history lesson, and I mentioned 'the king of Persia' and he shouted, 'that's King Cyrus!' " Camille in California
