How Apologia Biology and SDA Biology Align

Standard Deviants Accelerate is a fantastic online teaching supplement, but we know many homeschoolers also use other curricula like Apologia Biology.  We want to make it easy for you to use SDA Biology in conjunction with whatever you’re using as your main Biology curriculum, so we’ve gone through SDA Biology and Apologia Biology to show you where SDA topics fit best.  Apologia is a completely separate company and product, so SDA Biology doesn’t contain all the same topics as Apologia Biology, and vise versa.  We’ve done our best here at Standard Deviants Accelerate to make it easier for those using Apologia Biology curriculum to supplement with SDA Biology, and fit SDA into your lessons.
