The Master's Class High School Biology (student text) used alongside the Master's Class High School Biology Teacher Guide work together to bring the wonder of biblical creation and science together for homeschool students. This homeschool curriculum with labs begins with a review of chemical principles needed for biology, including the biology of water, and concludes with human origins.

This course provides important training and practice in developing skills involved in the study of biology, including observing and recognizing interactions and interdependencies of organisms in their natural environment, the use of a light microscope, dissection skills, and insights and recent advances in modern biology.

Through this study of biology, your high school student will learn how we are created in God’s image with an eternal destiny rather than being the sum product of natural laws acting upon atoms and molecules. This course reveals the variations in humans today had their roots in the DNA of two humans (Adam and Eve) and give glory to God for this wonder of life.

Course Objectives:

  • Investigate the core concepts of classical and modern biology
  • Become familiar with the meaning of key terms in biology
  • Explore the fundamental concepts of cell biology and important recent developments
  • Study the development of classical genetics and modern concepts in the expression of DNA and how it varies with age and changing environmental conditions
  • Learn the coordination and maintenance of the parts of an organism
  • Study the variety of life forms and how their roles are integrated in an ecosystem
  • Explore varied views of the origin of life and how the biblical narrative is consistent with what is observed in the study of biology
  • Conduct laboratory procedures that develop important skills and illustrate important concepts
  • Write lab reports each week to further develop writing skills in a scientific context

Easy to use
Review by Megan
Both of my teens love how easy the workbook pages are to understand and complete. I just tear out the answers and put them in a binder. The kids use the teacher guide as a workbook.
Loving it
Review by Angela
This has been an excellent class for my daughter, who was reluctant to take this class. We are doing this class along with the Master Books Academy course; it is a great pairing. She is loving it and is so glad to be taking biology and learning a lot.
Great Resource
Review by Tasha
I love how this is so user friendly. It has the perfect mix of different assignments to keep the student engaged and I like how the lab sheets are easy to use and understand!
Important to complete the course
Review by Yulia
The Teacher Guide has all the quizzes, tests, assignments that the student needs to complete the course. It also includes important information for the teacher to help them to correctly asses the success of the student as well as tips how to grade it and how to perform labs.
It also includes the weekly schedule to take records of the work done and grades given.
Nicely done!
A Must-Have to Accompany the Course's Student Text!
Review by HSKelly
Biology can be a complex subject to study. After all, when you are diving into the study of all living organisms, there's definitely a lot to grasp and take in. It's so important to find curriculum that is going to help students connect with what they are trying to learn. What I love about this particular Biology course from Master Books is that everything is taught from a Christian worldview. The lessons encompass God's living creation, while also coupling them with modern day advances in science, so students are getting the best of both worlds when it comes to the study of biology. This makes everything all the more fun and exciting!

Each chapter in the student text breaks down the main objectives for that lesson right in the beginning. The entire course encompasses a strong hands-on approach, which is great! While you initially have your reading portion of each lesson, it doesn't just stop there. After each lesson has been completed, a lab is tied in to bring everything together. I find this to be extremely important, especially with all the subject matter that the study of biology entails. Since there is a lot to take it, just reading text and trying to memorize everything may not be enough. That is why the course challenges students with these hands-on lab activities and real life practice, in turn, giving them a better understanding of what they're learning

The teacher guide is a vital component to have in addition to the student text. It comes complete with instructions and tips on guiding students through the lessons. I love that there is a complete listing of supplies needed for each lab. This is provided right in the beginning, for those who want to have everything they'll need ahead of time. Other features include additional worksheets and lab journaling pages for the lessons, as well as quizzes and exams. Quizzes are to be provided at the end of each lesson, while the exams cover four chapters at a time. There's even a grading sheet to keep track of quiz, exam, and lab scores. One of my favorite features in the teacher guide (as with other Master Books courses) is the inclusion of a suggested daily schedule. This is an optional feature that breaks down the coursework in a feasible manner, and is extremely helpful for taking the guesswork out of what needs to be done and when.

This also fulfills a high school science (with lab) credit requirement, which is wonderful. The course is quite comprehensive covering topics that include, but not limited to cell systems, biomes, energy, ecosystems, genetics/DNA, animal/plant classifications, and human origins. Since this is biology from a Creation perspective, there are some discussions spread throughout the lessons about evolution in comparison to God's great design. These discussions offer living proof of the Lord's purposeful plan for all life forms. The text provides detailed (and logical) examples of how evolution just simply cannot be the reasoning behind many of the events that take place in the world of science. The author does a wonderful job at settling the debates with backed up evidence, which is fantastic! The course offers a well-rounded introduction to biology, providing a solid foundation on the study of all living organisms. It's an extremely helpful course to not only satisfy the requirement for a high school lab science, but also helps prepare students for future courses and studies in related subject matter.
The support you need!
Review by Kelly
A must-have for your Biology course is the Biology teacher’s guide. With lesson plans, time requirements, course objectives, the answer key, and a master list of lab materials (and where to find them), you will be prepared to successfully teach Biology to your high school students.
A great asset to the Biology Student Book
Review by Christina
An amazing tool to accompany the Master books Biology course student book. This Teachers Manual includes an easy to follow daily schedule, lab sheets, questions pages as well as tests and exams to help you grade this course for keeping your high school records. The teachers guide with the student book makes high school Biology open and go! Only lab supplies still need to purchased.
Review by Roshawnda
As someone with a degree in the medical field, the sciences are obviously my favorite to teach and the ones I'm most critical of.

This Biology course is simply amazing. Unlike most high school courses, it is very inviting for the student with beautiful pictures and engaging text. However, it does not skimp on information or workload/labs- it is definitely suited best for high school level students.
A Perfect Resource
Review by Cristina, A Homeschool Mom
We've been homeschooling over ten years, with three kids in high school. All I can say is I wish we'd come across this resource years ago! Master Books makes learning hands-on, fun, and aligns with Scripture perfectly; even for our oldest students. This curriculum worked beautifully.

With easy to understand, enjoyable lessons, filled with labs in every chapter; our students thoroughly enjoyed their exploration of Biology more than they have with any other text. We can't say enough wonderful things about this resource.
Very Easy to Use
Review by Theresa
Great Teacher’s Guide! It includes a suggested schedule, worksheets (to be completed from the reading in the Student Guide), all the quizzes, tests, and answers, the lab report templates, LOTS of helpful tools for grading (in the front, and again in the back Answer Key), and areas for keeping track of grades. I especially appreciate that the lab supply list is all together upfront, and the sample lab reports, so that my students can get an idea of what is expected (and I can have a better idea of what is going on, and how to grade them.)

Both the quizzes and exams are matching/multiple choice type questions, and I kind of wish the exams included essay type questions as well—but my kids will rejoice. (Many of the college science courses I took did use only Scantron tests, so this is normal.) The worksheets and lab reports do a great job in making sure the students have good reading comprehension, and have observed, reflected upon, and understood the material.

I’m very impressed with this course, and thankful for the biblical worldview.
