  • Course Description

This high school biology course is designed to be your student’s first high school science course. Biology includes an emphasis on vocabulary as well as critical thinking skills in order to properly prepare students to have scientific discussions. Students will develop a strong background in the scientific method, so they are trained for laboratory sciences in additional high school science courses and university studies. I hope that through this Biology course, students will see the Creator in the creation through the details and design in every aspect of life. Class time will include both lecture and lab. Quizzes and tests will be given in class.

Objectives:

Biological Classification
Students will understand taxonomy, which is the scientific study of naming, be able to define and classify groups of biological organisms based on shared characteristics using the seven-level system, and be familiar with binomial nomenclature. 

Biological Processes
Students will be able to understand and explain the basic components and processes of 
a cell, including metabolism, homeostasis, reproduction, development, and genetics. 

 

Biological Relationships
Students will study the relationship at the molecular, cellular, organism, population, and 
ecosystem levels and will understand the biological hierarchy.


Experiments and Lab Reports
Students will be able to conduct, analyze, and communicate (written and orally) 
biological experiments in order to reinforce concepts discussed in class.

  • Classwork / Homework

Class work will include discussion, experimentation, field studies, microscopy, and dissection. Lab reports and homework will be completed at home. 

Homework/time commitment: Approximately 2-3 hours per week on reading, homework, and lab reports.
