Course Description
This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of fundamental concepts and their applications while reinforcing and developing skills essential for continued success as lifelong learners. Biology is designed to provide the student with critical thinking opportunities to evaluate and understand science as inquiry. The course opens with the history and nature of science and how science and technology are successfully integrated. Living organisms are studied in reference to their structure and function and from the microscopic perspective of matter, energy, basic chemistry, molecular genetics, organization, and the molecular basis of heredity. From the macroscopic perspective, organisms' life cycles and reproduction, diversity, adaptation, life origins, interdependence, and behavior in the environment are explored. Living phyla, comparative morphology, homeostasis, population ecology, and nonrenewable resources support the themes throughout the course. Students will also have the opportunity to utilize laboratory simulations to reinforce the major concepts of this course.
