DR DAN’s GENERAL SCIENCE course SEMESTER 2(Class ONLY) is a perfect introduction to the Scientific Method, Earth Science, and Life Science. It is presented from a Biblical Worldview. This course also helps your student to: “Learn how to learn” and remember those facts and names that seem to be overwhelming.
NOTE: REVIEW CHARTS for selected lessons (downloadable PDFs) are provided to aid comprehension while keeping the BIG picture in view as an added value FREE of charge.
Current – Dr Dan offers a self-paced course for those students in high school who are ready to begin soon (mid-summer 2018) or at the start of the 2018-19 school year (late August, 2018).
Soon – Dr Dan may open a live, online learning opportunity! More updates on that as soon as we have them.
You’ll enjoy superior quality videos from live classes held in Western Colorado. All classes were video-taped during a 2 hour time frame once per week for a total of 16 weeks in front of real-live homeschoolers and moms just like you! Each hourly class is divided up topically into 3-10 videos allowing students to watch the entire lesson all at once or in smaller segments during the week! Class Video quizzes are provided for each lesson!
Who is this course designed for? Whether your learner loves, hates, or simply tolerates science, you’ll find that Dr Dan’s General Science course will open up a fun new way to approach the subject. Students benefit from Dr. Dan’s many years of veterinary practice and teaching experience. Your child will be amazed at the unexpected and even silly things that Dr. Dan dreams up to make general science fun and rewarding. Over 75 videos are included covering various topics over the 16 week period. Each video can be viewed more than once, paused and slowed down/sped up for note taking or study purposes. Hearing him talk slowly will make you laugh AND remember the material!
These videos were recorded in a live classroom setting and are intended to engage the student into the masterpiece of God’s design.
Dr. Dan’s General Science Course will lay a firm groundwork for students who want to take Science to the College Level. Prior students have stated that this course was really helpful for the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test and/or the Advanced Placement (AP) test. Many students also stated that they felt excellently prepared once they got to college!
However, this course is also very suitable for the struggling learner who desires to go at their own pace! Dr. Dan strives to make concepts understandable and memorable for a lifetime! Many moms of dyslexic students have been very pleased with how Dr. Dan’s material is presented to create more passion for learning.
