Course Description\nLife 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.\n\nCourse Breakdown\n\n Fields of science\n The scientific method\n Theory versus law\n The light microscope\n The electron microscope\n Prokaryotes and eukaryotes\n Cells\n Organelles\n Cellular movement\n Homeostasis\n Cellular respiration\n Photosynthesis\n Calvin cycle Tissues\n Organs\n Digestive system\n Endocrine system\n Cardiovascular system\n Respiratory system\n Skeletal system\n Excretory system\n Skin\n The brain\n Reproductive system\n Mitosis and meiosis\n\nCourse Goals\n Analyze different types of science in the field.\n Describe the origins of the light and electron microscopes.\n Differentiate between prokaryotes and eukaryotes.\n Describe the cell and its different organelles.\n Learn about the importance of homeostasis.
