Our recommendation:

Components of Biology Matters:

The Textbook can be used in a school or home setting for 9th or 10th grade students. It can be read independently; although there are questions given in the margin for discussion. There a few review questions at the end of each chapter but for additional review you will want to get the workbooks. The focus is on human and vascular plant systems. Earth science, space science, and evolution are not covered. The text includes brief descriptions of the experiments in the practical books with a few questions which cannot always be answered without doing the investigation or a similar one. It is not essential to do all the investigations, but the program will be more complete and the questions easier to answer if some of them are done or similar investigations are substituted. There are a few Singapore-specific references.

The Practical Book is meant for a school setting and requires common laboratory apparatus and chemicals. They can be done in a home setting with the purchase of some equipment and adaptation of some activities, as well as substitution of some material. Parents/teachers need to be aware of and enforce standard safety issues and precautions. Some of the experiments do require some more expensive equipment, and can be omitted or other experiments substituted. The Teacherís Edition of the Practical Books is a copy of the studentís edition with answers printed on the pages. It does not tell you how to prepare any reagents or solvents.

The Workbook can be easily used in a school or home setting.  There is one worksheet for most chapters, but not for all chapters, and one ďModel Examination PaperĒ. The worksheets are structured like the exams in Singapore and include a multiple-choice section, a structured answer section, and a free response section. Some of the problems will be easier to answer if the investigations and practicals or similar types of activities have been completed. The Teacherís Edition of the Workbook is a copy of the studentís edition with answers printed on the pages.

The Teacherís Planning Guide is a good resource with scheme of work, detailed lesson plans, links to internet sites, and additional activities. The guide also contains answers to the textbook questions, including the reviews. (Please note that The Answer Key for Textbook Questions provides answers to textbook questions). Homeschoolers could probably find a variety of web sites themselves.

The Answer Key for Textbook Questions provides answers to textbook questions only. (The same answers are in the Teacher's Planning Guide).
