Science and Worldview

Unlike math and computer science, there are world view issues that come into play with science. Try to find a science program that works for your own beliefs. We used Apologia, and LOVED it, and I believe it was fabulous preparation for my sons. One of my boys went into engineering in college and was well prepared by Apologia. My other son was able to pass a CLEP exam in Biology after using Apologia, so I also know he was well prepared in science. Apologia has an optional, all-computer textbook available, so that might be just the "fit" that your child needs. Here is a link:

It doesn't read the text to the student, but it is all computer based.

Rainbow Science is experiment based, rather than computer or reading focused. It just has general science and chemistry, though. If your daughter does better at visual learning, The Teaching Company has a high school chemistry course on video.

Although expensive right now, those programs usually go on sale once a year, and you can sometimes get it at the library or get good deals online.

It doesn't matter what I recommend, though. The philosophy is that you choose some options, then have your daughter choose the final curriculum when that's possible. That helps to fit the curriculum to you AND to her!
