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.

Lab Workbook 

During the video labs, the activity pages in the Lab Workbook is used to formulate a hypothesis, record data, make calculations, and evaluate results. A printable PDF is included with your course.  A hard copy, printed in color on 3 hole punched paper is available for those who do not want to print the 86 pages at home.  Purchase the Lab Workbook

 

 

  

QUARTERLY EXAMS PREPARE FOR COLLEGE
Quarterly exams promote study habits similar to what a student should expect in college, where exams are given infrequently and cover a large amount of material. To give the student adequate time to study, there are no assignments during the week of the exam. If you would like a Pre-AP course, we recommend giving the exams with a "review sheet" and a one hour time limit. If you prefer a regular high school course, do the exam "open note". At this level we like the "review sheet" method because it best teaches students how to prioritize and organize the information, providing an easier transition from weekly to quarterly exams. Exams are interactive and feature auto-grading and grade recording. 
 
Q & A EMAIL SUPPORT WITH DR. SHORMANN
While our program is very comprehensive and includes video solutions to all worksheet and lab exercises, occasionally a little extra help is needed. Students and parents can email Dr. Shormann directly anytime they have a question concerning the course. Emails are answered within one business day.  

 

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION
 
Credits Earned: 1 Credit of Integrated Physics & Chemistry with Lab
 
Designed for use as an honors or standard course, DIVE Integrated Physics & Chemistry teaches all the topics for the new requirement including Science and Christianity, measurement of matter, atoms, the Periodic Table, nuclear chemistry, chemical bonds and reactions, acids and bases, Newton’s laws, work and simple machines, gases and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, and light. Based on the scientific method, the video labs have many fun, engaging activities that draw students in and inspire them to learn more. Scroll down to view the full scope and sequence.

 

Upon completion of DIVE ICP, 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.
 
 
Self-Paced eLearning Course vs CD-ROM
This self-paced eLearning course offers several advantages over the CD version.
  • All homework, quizzes, and quarterly exams are automatically graded and the grades are stored in an online gradebook.
  • There is no CD to lose or damage.
  • Use on almost all computers, tablets, and devices
 
Although this is a 32 week course, the eLearning course subscription is 12 months, providing more than enough time for parent/teacher planning, illness, and vacations. However, if more time is needed, a 12 month renewal can be purchased for $22. Each sibling can take the course for a renewal fee of $22. Learn More

    Good Self-Paced Course

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Nov 2020

    My daughter enjoys this class and likes that it is laid out in a very easy to follow format. She feels that the lectures and labs are very detailed which is helpful. Her only minor issue is that sometimes she gets into a lab and finds out that something is needed that wasn't listed on the supplies sheet. As a parent I like that the review questions and tests are graded for me. I sit with my daughter for the labs, and they are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend this course.

    4th Time using this Perfect High School Science

    Posted by Bobbi H. on 10th Dec 2019

    I have used this combo chemistry and physics for all 4 of my kids! It covers the basics for both of these physical sciences, giving them a great foundation. My oldest 2 did not pursue science or engineering, so they did not need advanced courses in these subjects. They took biology and geology at a local college and scored A's. They were well prepared for the rigor of the more advanced science. It also looked very well rounded on their transcripts to have chemistry, physics, biology and then physical geology. They both got into very competative colleges with scholarships. AND I LOVE THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW!! Great conversations ensued from doing this at our kitchen counter. (I recommend doing some labs hands on...very fun!)

    great curriculum

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Nov 2019

    So far so good. Obviously, we are only halfway through the year, but it's very thought out and organized. It seems also very thorough. Online courses are often very expensive and these are so reasonably priced which I am so thankful for.

    Excellent for my dyslexic student!

    Posted by Cathy on 31st Mar 2019

    DIVE Integrated Chemistry & Physics has proven to be an excellent program for my daughter, who has dyslexia. She learns best using multi-sensory approaches, so video educational products are excellent for her. Dr. Shormann is easy to understand and he has written a workbook for assignments and labs that is a thorough coverage of the material. His labs make you feel like you're right there with him, which works great for those who can't afford the lab materials. His requirements are clear, and I appreciate that he allows the consumer the ability to print the workbook and glossary on our own.

    Great Curriculum

    Posted by Rachel A on 10th Dec 2017

    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!

    Comprehensive Course

    Posted by Babs on 27th Nov 2017

    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!!

    Can't Thank You Enough!

    Posted by Emily on 5th Nov 2015

    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!
