Course Overview

Dr. Dan’s GENERAL SCIENCE course (Class ONLY) is a perfect introduction to the Scientific Method, Earth Science, and Life Science. It is presented from a Biblical Worldview. Semester 1 is a foundational course that focuses on the Scientific Method, Simple Machines and Earth Science (Geology), whereas Semester 2 looks at the marvels of the Human body. God’s fingerprints can be seen everywhere for those who have eyes to see. Strap yourself in for an extrordinary adventure!

Both courses of General Science (Semester 1 and 2) are self-paced, comprehensive, and combined, total 32 weeks of instruction.  In each General Science course, Dr. Daniel  Korow DVM presents the key concepts and ideas that makes General Science truly fascinating! He draws from many sources creating a total package that integrates General Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, as well as his experiences as a veterinarian.

In addition, Dr. Dan’s General Science will help your student : “Learn how to learn” and remember those facts and names that seem to be mind boggling. This course is designed to make Science understandable. Memorization may work on the short term to get that “A” on an exam, but understanding and mastery of the material will last a lifetime!
