The Biology course guides students through the study of living and non-living systems and how they interact with one another. Students explore the world they live in by posing questions and seeking answers through scientific inquiry. Discovery takes place through observation and data collection. The students will be introduced to the structure, function, diversity, and evolution of living matter. This is a course with real relevance. It encourages curiosity and provides opportunity for students to work on hands on lab activities and develop relationships through collaboratively learning. Engaging in the study of biological science broadens the picture of the world around us.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of foundations of biology by describing the scientific method, explaining elements of the chemistry of life, and describing Earth’s early atmosphere.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of cell structures and processes by analyzing properties of water, describing cell structure and function, explaining processes of cellular transport, and explaining cellular energy.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of heredity and cell reproduction by comparing types of cell division, describing heredity and genetic mutations, explaining the process and applications of DNA replication, and explaining the process of protein synthesis.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of ecological systems by describing fundamentals of ecology, summarizing the characteristics of the biosphere, describing elements of ecosystems, and explaining the impact of changes on ecosystems.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of evolution and natural selection by explaining the theory of evolution and describing the process of natural selection.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of classification and diversity by explaining the classification of organisms and describing the features specific to organisms in each kingdom.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of systems of the human body by describing the structure and function of the human body systems and comparing body system actions.
