My son is going to be starting the General Science book from Apologia. This is a very big book and there is a lot in it. I want to make the most of it but not overwhelm him next year. So I want to ask a couple things.
1st he will obviously read the entire book from front to back. He will try and do the "on your own" questions and self correct them. Now for where I need to know.
Experiements - we are not a huge one on this should I just let him pick how many he wants to do BUT insist on him doing 1 or 2?
Study Guide - This one really seems closest to the test. Which makes me feel he should do this to see if he's ready for the test. Does this sound correct? Can he use the book? What if he doesn't do good on it?
Summary - This is a very conversational thing that's an option at the end of the book. Is it necessary?
Tests- The book says do NOT let them use the book is that the way you also did the tests? Or could they use them? What if they do not do well on the test?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I am a bit confused or just book size shocked on how to transittion a family science course into the self taught one that will be happening for my son. Misty
