11th - 12th Grade
Credit - 1
This course examines all aspects of life science including cellular, structural, functional, behavioral, environmental and evolutionary history. Students will develop an appreciation of the biological issues that they will confront in the twenty-first century. Students will conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, and maintain a laboratory notebook or a portfolio to gain an understanding of the processes of science. The main objective is to present biology as a science and to see the process of science as a reliable method of gaining useful, objective knowledge. The key to this understanding lies in the meaningful investigation of real scientific problems. Homework assignments will require readings from periodicals, printed handouts and the textbook, Biology by Johnson and Raven. These will support classroom lectures and discussions and help students solve problems.
