Welcome to Biology! This course is an introductory study of the living world around us. Students will actively participate in not only learning science but doing science. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the cell, the molecular basis of heredity, biological evolution, the interdependence of organisms, biological living systems, and the behavior of organisms. The scientific method is used to solve biological questions and problems. Students will further develop their understanding of the nature of scientific activity by designing investigations, using technology to collect, analyze, and report on data, use relevant library and Internet sources for research, and use appropriate communication skills to present outcomes from their research.
