Pre-Requisite: Algebra 1 should be completed or taken concurrently
Self-Paced eLearning Course is recommended over the CD-ROM

COLLEGES RENAME PHYSICAL SCIENCE
IN BIOLOGY, THE BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES ARE DRIVEN BY CHEMICAL REACTIONS. TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THESE PROCESSES, A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY IS REQUIRED. SINCE MANY PHYSICAL SCIENCE TEXTS INCLUDE EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE, THEY LACK THESE CRITICAL CONCEPTS.
THEREFORE, COLLEGES HAVE CHANGED THE REQUIREMENTS FOR PHYSICAL SCIENCE AND RENAMED IT INTEGRATED PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY (IPC). IPC SHOULD HAVE ONE FULL SEMESTER OF INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY AND ONE FULL SEMESTER OF INTRODUCTORY PHYSICS. IT SHOULD NOT BE WATERED DOWN WITH EARTH AND SPACE TOPICS.
DIVE INTEGRATED PHYSICS & CHEMISTRY MEETS THESE NEW REQUIREMENTS, PROVIDING EXCELLENT PREPARATION FOR BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, AND PHYSICS.
Upon completion of DIVE IPC, students will be adept at working with the scientific method, developing lab skills that are above and beyond most of their peers. They will understand the importance of the energy sources used to power our world. Most importantly, students will have a better understanding of the laws God has woven into Creation. They will gain an appreciation for the rich Christian heritage that exists in science. With special emphasis on men like Isaac Newton and Michael Faraday, students will understand the importance of studying His Word and His Works as they seek to become good stewards of His creation.
The course is set up on a 32 week schedule with an average of two video lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab to complete each week. Every 8 weeks there is a quarterly exam. The lecture and lab videos average 30 minutes each, but don't forget to add time for pausing, rewinding, and note-taking. This is what a typical week would look like:
DAY 1: COMPLETE DEFINITIONS & ASSIGNED READING
DAY 2: LECTURE 1, WORKSHEET 1, WATCH VIDEO SOLUTIONS FOR MISSED QUESTIONS
DAY 3: LECTURE 2, WORKSHEET 2, WATCH VIDEO SOLUTIONS FOR MISSED QUESTIONS
DAY 4: WATCH VIDEO LAB (HANDS-ON NOT REQUIRED), LAB WORKSHEET, VIDEO SOLUTIONS
EVERY 8 WEEKS : QUARTERLY EXAM - NO OTHER ASSIGNMENTS
- RECOMMENDED FOR 8TH/9TH GRADE
- ALGEBRA 1 SHOLD BE COMPLETED OR TAKEN CONCURRENTLY
- ALL MACS, LINUX, AND WINDOWS XP AND HIGHER
- SPEAKERS OR HEADPHONES

I like the independence and format of this product. My student likes the 4 day schedule! Also appreciate correlation with popular home school texts. Biblically based also another factor in deciding to go with this.
Wonderful resource for homeschool families!

We have been using the D.I.V.E programs for math and science for many years. Our children look forward to the lessons and have done well in those subjects. The encouragement Dr. Shoreman gives In their spiritual lives is a bonus!
Thank God for Dr. Shormann

My son is planning on going into a career heavy in math and science and I just knew I would be ill equipped to teach him. Dr. Shormann's videos make learning complicated science concepts easy.
