Miller-Levine Biology Schedule with Labs – Macaw i-Pad Edition

millerlevineI put together a chronological schedule for Miller-Levine Biology including labs.  My son will be reading the Macaw i-Pad edition and mostly using labs from the Illustrated Guide to Home Biology Experiments and the Miller & Levine Biology Laboratory Manual A
If you look on this schedule you will see “complete questions” quite often.  The i-Pad text has short quizes at the end of a section and the end of a chapter.  When my son completes the quiz on the i-Pad, it automatically scores them.  These are mostly for him to use to assess how well he has understood the material.  I don’t plan on any tests or any other quizzes.   My son learns well through reading and labs alone so I don’t find the need at the moment.  If I was using this book for high school credit I would have chapter and/or unit tests though.
