Course Description

The science of biology is large, complex, and constantly changing. This course provides students with a broad and interactive experience covering the main topics of biological science. Topics range from cell reproduction to the diversity of life. Students also learn about the chemical components of life, the process of energy conversion, and life’s functions. The course explores genetics, incorporating the latest scientific research, including the use of genetics in biotechnology. Next, the course covers ecology to raise students’ awareness of the many challenges and opportunities in the modern world and how they apply to the field of biology. Finally, the course presents the theory of evolution and the evidence that supports the theory. Throughout the course, students complete lab activities that reinforce the material and provide the opportunity to apply their knowledge through interactive experiments and activities.
