Apologia Physical Science

Apologia Physical Science

How much of this book do you usually do? I remember in school, we rarely finished an entire textbook, whether it was science, soc studies, math. I am used to science only taking half the year or being done 3 times a week. I am intimidated by this big, thick book!

I used the mfw lesson plans to get all of the modules done in a 32-34 weeks. Each module is about 2 weeks including time to study for module test. add in some time for quarterly tests..

here we go.. they do sell the plans separately.. 1st and 2nd edition

most of the weeks it is 4 days a week. some 5 day weeks if you do quarterly tests.

there's stuff on donna young site too

lots of easy ways to get the book done in a year's time in doable chunks.

We do the entire textbook from front to back in one year and we still finish early.

We don't however fuss with all the "added" activities, notebooky stuff, and we don't do all the tests either. I found that when the kids read the text, do the experiments, fill out their lab sheets and do an occasional test, they do just fine.

We do the entire Apologia book. Two weeks per module. He works independently, and does science approx 4 days a week.

I have this on the shelf for next year. It is hefty, isn't it?
Like Crystal, I use the MFW plans and that helps my dd stay on track and enables her to do it independently.

We used the free schedule for General Science from the Yahoo Group and plan to use the one from the Physical Science Yahoo Group this coming year. I love it. It's very similar to the Sonlight schedule lay-out.

oooh, good tips, everybody, thanks!

re: Apologia Physical Science

Thanks everyone. Looks like finishing the entire book is doable. We'll see how it goes.
