Class Description: This course is designed to help your student gain confidence in his science abilities. Teaching them independence and responsibility for school work assigned. The student will learn how to take thorough notes, answer questions with logical answers and gain a solid foundation to build upon in high school.
The students will conduct experiments where they observe a problem, ask a question, formulate a testable hypothesis, and then conduct the experiment and analyze the data to see if their results support their hypothesis. It involves quantitative data that require measurements. The lab portion of Apologia guides students through this process.

Note: of the two books, the Student Notebook will be required. You may also use the previous edition for reference material. However they have rewritten the entire book from what it sounds like. The topics covered appear to be the same; however. The information may be presented differently, and I imagine there is more to the 3rd edition in comparison to the 2nd edition.
