My student has taken Biology, but can't take Chemistry because he will not be taking Algebra 2. Can he take DIVE Integrated Chemistry & Physics?

Integrated Physics & Chemistry (ICP) is designed to prepare students for Biology. Many colleges will not accept ICP as a high school science credit after Biology has been taken. However, if your student is not college bound or will not apply directly to a four year college, DIVE ICP is a good choice. Alternatively, see our other recommended options below:

Option 1: Most colleges only require 3 high school sciences for non-science majors. If your student is behind in math, take a break from science and use the extra time to catch up on math. Then, start DIVE Chemistry when the student starts Algebra 2.

Option 2: Take DIVE Earth Science as a standard high school course. Most colleges view Earth Science as a distinguished science course. Originally designed as a middle school course, DIVE Earth Science is easily modified to earn high school credit. However, it is not as rigorous as Integrated Chemistry & Physics, providing some extra time to work on math.   Learn More:  How to use DIVE Earth Science as a high school course?
