Life Science (MS) (2nd semester)

SKU EDMS.SC002.CD Categories: , ,

Course Description
Life Science (MS) introduces students to the subject of biology and the structures and functions of living things. The course begins with instruction in the scientific method and the tools used to study tiny living things. The cell is the basic building block of life, so students will examine unicellular organisms and how the structures of the cell carry out the functions of life, including photosynthesis and respiration. The cells combine into tissues, organs, and systems. Students will discover the systems of the human body. The course then moves into a discussion of the basics of genetics. Finally, students learn about the various forms of life on Earth and how they interact in ecosystems.
