STATE-OF-THE-ART SELF-PACED eCOURSE
with a BIBLICAL FOUNDATION
Watch the Getting Started Lesson below to see how it works.
A 21st Century introductory chemistry and physics course designed to spark
interest in science while building a firm foundation for upper level science courses.
Introductory Physics and Chemistry course
Meets the new requirements for Physical Science
- Excellent preparation for Biology, Chemistry, & Physics
Usually taken in 8th or 9th Grade along with Algebra 1
- Prerequisite: Students should have completed or be taking Algebra 1 along with this course.
New Physical Science Requirements
Because the biological processes learned in biology are driven by chemical reactions, a good understanding of introductory chemistry is required to learn and understand biology. In 2010, the colleges change the requirements for Physical Science and re-named it Integrated Physics & Chemistry. This course should now have one full semester of introductory chemistry and one full semester of introductory physics. It should not contain any Earth or space science concepts that water down the chemistry and physics required to fully understand and enjoy upper level science courses. Most colleges now require Integrated Physics and Chemistry before Biology.
During the video labs, the activity pages in the Lab Workbook is used to formulate a hypothesis, record data, make calculations, and evaluate results. This workbook is spiral bound with heavy covers. A printable PDF is included with your course. A hard copy, printed in full color and spiral bound with heavy covers is available for those who do not want to print the 182 pages at home.

My daughter is working through this ICP course right now. This is the first time that she has taken her own notes for class. She is doing excellent. She enjoys the videos and the labs. I personally think that an actual video of the lab portion would be much more beneficial compared to just pictures, but she doesn't seem to mind. Also, the computerized interactive labs are very fun and interesting for her to learn from. I also like that she can contact Dr. Shormann with question instead of from me. As much as I am involved in what she is doing, I don't really understand everything about this curriculum. It's nice to have a teacher other than me explaining what she needs to do. Thank you!

My two oldest sons have taken this course and gotten into highly ranked universities, including STEM focused colleges. They were well prepared for college science courses and sailed through. In part, I credit this course and the excellent biblical teaching that enabled them to sift through later science courses as they had to separate fact from fiction! They both love Dr. "Dave.:" I am sticking with it for my third son this year and will start my 4th kiddo with it when high school comes. It cal also be used as an honor level course!! Fantastic!!
Our son is thriving!

We are very satisfied with our purchase.
Our son is thriving in the Algebra and ICP courses.
Can't Thank You Enough!

Thank you for this absolutely wonderful program!!! After many years of homeschooling, after many different math programs, and after endless hours of research for the perfect program for our family...we have found it! My boys are both taking Shormann Algebra and we all could not be happier!
As I write this, my boys are sitting with me at the kitchen table on their computers doing a DIVE ICP vocab game. I think it's called "Space Race". Never before in the history of their lives have they ever been so excited to learn any kind of vocabulary. Seriously...I am in awe watching them learn science with such enthusiasm. Our table is shaking from them tying in answers as fast as they can. I can't thank you enough!

My daughter enjoys the curriculum and does well with it.

Dear Dr. Shormann,
Our family has just received DIVE Algebra 1 and DIVE Science ICP. I have also spent the past two weeks in intensive preparations regarding this year’s studies for our children. I try to be very thorough, intentional, organized and on and on. It is no small task. I am familiar with the effort required to put together a quality program. I mention this because I am blown away by the thorough, God-honoring, educationally superior, forward thinking curriculum you have put together. It is astounding, actually, and I am very grateful for all of your efforts. You have created a truly anointed program that will equip and affect many, many lives.
The work you have put into this, offering different textbook “spines” and the accompanying syllabi, the internet links that are direct, appropriate, and rich in material, the forward thinking CLEP and honors paths, the reinforcements that allow for actual retention…It is all just amazing and I want to thank you for all of the immense effort and time you have invested in this program.
I’m so excited to begin this year of study!

My daughter took this course as a ninth grader and really enjoyed it. She used the Bob Jones textbook and said it was the best and most interesting she's ever used. She did well in the class and had good success emailing Dr. Shormann and getting timely responses. She found a few mistakes in the course of the year which she alerted Dr. Shormann about so hopefully, those will be fixed for the future. We were so satisfied with the class that she plans to continue with the DIVE high school science lineup.

My daughter was really truffling with the traditional science (apologia) method of reading/testing. But the DIVE method of reading and hen listening has really imp ted how she is learning the material. Even though DIVE is more difficult she is actually doing much better.
Great Learning Experience

We are homeschoolers. My son is in 9th grade. We are both enjoying The Integrated Chemistry and Physics Program! No textbook needed, readings come from online sites. Vocabulary review site is fun and challenging. Lecturer is articulate and precise. Labs sheets can be printed out each week. Lab video is also easy to understand. Online testing and scoring is great. We love Science and we are learning a lot from this course. I would recommend this to all 9th grade homeschoolers.
Great program and great value!

Dr. Shormann is an excellent instructor who has put together an extremely easy to use, comprehensive course. It makes my teaching job so much easier since I know that my student is getting what she needs from this course without a lot of time on my part.
Thanks for such a great program!
