Recommended Course Materials

Student Notebook

The Student Notebook for Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition is highly recommended and is sold separately.

Purchase Student Notebook

Apologia Student Notebooks are specifically designed to help students work independently and take responsibility for their studies.

In the Student Notebook, students will learn to:

  • Use the author’s style to guide your notes. If the author defines a term, make sure you include that definition in your notebook.
  • Compare and/or contrast two things using diagrams.
  • Classify items referenced in the text.
  • Write notes in your own words instead of copying text word for word. This helps students make their own connections to the ideas they’re learning.
  • Look up and define new or unknown words to help build scientific vocabulary and better understand what you’re reading.

Notetaking helps students retain information, review for tests, and produce a record of their thoughts as they connect the concepts presented in the textbook with their own ideas. Taking good notes can make the difference between mastering a concept and not quite understanding it.

Additionally, our Student Notebooks help students keep a carefully organized, detailed, and complete lab notebook. Using the included lab report forms, students can record the information they gather during experiments and master the process of writing a formal lab report.
