BASED ON A BIBLICAL FOUNDATION
Connecting Scripture to science, Dr. Shormann teaches from a 6-Day Creation Worldview. He inspires students to DIVE deeper into science and Scripture by teaching that science is a tool for understanding God and the purpose and pattern evident in Creation. 
 
 
VIDEO SOLUTIONS ENSURE UNDERSTANDING
Video solutions are provided for the digital worksheets and lab activites. Teaching how and why, each complex concept is taught step by step on the digital blackboard. These solutions ensure your child understands each concept.
 
QUARTERLY EXAMS PREPARE FOR COLLEGE COURSES
Every 8 weeks there is an exam. Quarterly exams promote study habits similar to what a student should expect in college, where exams are given infrequently and cover a large amount of material. On the week of the exam, no other work is assigned. If you would like an AP course, we recommend giving the exams traditionally with a one hour time limit. If you prefer a regular high school course, give the exams open book, open note, or with a "cheat sheet". Of these, we like the "cheat sheet" method because it best teaches students how to prioritize and organize the information, providing an easier transition from weekly to quarterly exams.  
 
Q & A EMAIL SUPPORT PROVIDES A LIFELINE
While our program is very comprehensive, occasionally a little extra help is needed. Students and parents can email Dr. Shormann directly anytime they have a question concerning the course. Emails are answered within one business day or less.  
 
AUTOMATED ONLINE GRADEBOOK 
All the grades from the digital worksheets, quarterly exams, and facts practice are automatically recorded in an online grade book. Parents use the student login to view assignments and scores. After each assignment is completed a results page displays the questions, correct answers, missed problems, and the grade. This results page can be printed and/or emailed to the parent each time an assignment is completed. 
 
 
FREE INTERNET TEXTBOOK FOR ASSIGNED READING
To prepare for the lecture, a reading assignment is completed. This can be done using our Internet Textbook, which is embedded in the eLearning course for quick and easy access. If you prefer a traditional textbook, we recommend Bob Jones Biology, Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, or Abeka Biology.  However, since we have a reading syllabus for just about every publisher, you can choose any textbook you likeSEE READING SYLLABI on the last page of the Teacher Guide.
          
EARN UP TO 8 HOURS OF COLLEGE CREDIT BY EXAM
Upon completion, we recommend our CLEP Professor for CLEP and AP Biology, a three week course that specifically prepares students for CLEP and AP Biology exams. Not only do these exams award up to 8 college credits, a passing score can significantly boost your college admissions and scholarship applications in the selection process.

 How Do I Access the Course?

Within 1-2 business days after purchase, you will receive an email titled "Login Credentials" with a link to the eLearning campus, the student's user name, and password. If you don't receive it, please check your spam, updates, and trash folders, then contact us here

 

Start Date: The start date of your subscription is your purchase date. We no longer offer an option to select a future start date. If you are not ready to start your course now, please wait and purchase when you are ready to start or want to access the course for planning, etc.

 

 

Which Email Address Should I List?

Student Email Address

Please provide a different email address for each child enrolled in an eLearning course. For example if, Joe is enrolled in eLearning Biology and his sibling, John, is enrolled in eLearning ICP, they must have different email addresses for each of their accounts. This email address is only used to re-set the password to the eLearning account, if needed. Therefore, any working email address can be listed in the Student Email field, as long as it has not being used by another child you have enrolled. 

 

Parent Email Address

The email address listed during check out, should be the parent’s email. This is the address the the eLearning course login credentials will be sent. This is also the email address used to contact the parent, if needed.

 

Parent Login

Parents use the student's login credentials to view assignments, grades, results, etc. After each assignment is completed, the student can email the results page that displays all the questions, the correct answer and your student's answer. The results for each assignment can also be viewed by clicking on the grade in the grade book. 

 

Can a parent take the course along with the student?

If the parent would like to complete assignments, a sibling subscription can be purchased for the parent. 

 

Sample Weekly Schedule
 
This self-paced course is set up on a 32 week schedule with an average of two video lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab to complete each week. Every 8 weeks there is a quarterly exam. The lecture and lab videos average 30 minutes each, but don't forget to add time for pausing, rewinding, and note-taking. While this is a flexible self-paced course, a typical week could look like this:

 

DAY 1: DEFINITIONS AND READING ASSIGNMENT

DAY 2: LECTURE 1, DIGITAL WORKSHEET 1

DAY 3: LECTURE 2, DIGITAL WORKSHEET 2

DAY 4: WATCH VIDEO LAB (HANDS-ON NOT REQUIRED), LAB WORKSHEET, GRADE LAB WITH VIDEO SOLUTIONS 

EVERY 8 WEEKS : QUARTERLY EXAM

  1. Thank You

    Posted by Kristie on 16th Feb 2017

    Dear Dr. Shormann,

    On behalf of my kids, we want to thank you for creating the CLEP Professor and other videos. My oldest daughter has taken the College Algebra and received college credit. She took it along side her first semester of precalculus and mentioned that it also helped her with the class. Now she is excited to take the Precalc CLEP after she finished the class this spring. She would have loved to have DIVE prep for College Mathematics, but she took the CLEP and passed gaining more credit. We have also used
    the DIVE Biology and loved it. Thanks so much.

  2. Great with Apologia Science

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Mar 2016

    My daughter was struggling with Apologia Biology last year, so I decided to purchase DIVE Biology to go along with the Apologia Textbook. She is very happy because she finally understands much better the subject and she is starting to love Science again. We will continue to use DIVE with Science High School for Physics and Chemistry too.

  3. Message of Gratitude

    Posted by Cathy W. on 10th Dec 2015

    Today was one of those spectacular, praise God for home education moments, as I listened in on the above Biology lecture. My daughter loves this course, and I am wholly unequipped to teach high school sciences. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for the truthful expression of Christian truth and ideals presented in this unit. In addition, the acknowledgment and "warning" that students will not encounter these truths in secular science studies and tests, empowers students with these truths. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for your work, and that we were able to connect with D.I.V.E. Science. Truly, a grace and a blessing to my daughter's academic journey. God bless you!
