NROC: National Repository of Online Courses offers a series of high school, AP, and intro college-level courses online for free. We’re using the AP Biology curriculum right now available here and here (different layout, same curriculum).
We have a first-year college bio textbook too (not the one recommended by this course), just in case. The videos, the nice layout, and the convenience of having answers to the tests is what made me lean towards this program for the girls. However, I like holding a textbook, since we all have to take detailed notes, charts, diagrams, etc. Yes–even this oldie with a B.S. in Biology!
I’m reading alongside my 10 & 11-year-olds as they finish this course. We don’t plan on taking any AP tests. We’re just using AP for the challenging curriculum level.
What high school curriculum are you using? What are your thoughts of this program?
