If Apologia Physical Science was taken, does DIVE Integrated Chemistry and Physics need to be taken before Biology?

Apologia Physical Science (all editions including the 3rd Ed.) does not teach all the required introductory chemistry concepts needed to learn biology. The biological processes learned in biology are driven by chemical reactions. Therefore, a good understanding of introductory chemistry is required to learn high school biology. Please be sure to read the information below:

  • If your student plans to take the AP Biology Exam, taking DIVE ICP is required. We have an Accelerated Schedule that allows students to fill in these gaps and build a firm foundation for Biology in about 12 weeks.
  • If your student does not plan to take the AP Biology exam, it is recommended but not required. We have an Accelerated Schedule that allows students to fill in these gaps and build a firm foundation for Biology in about 12 weeks.
