The purpose of Biology is to increase students’ understanding of the scientific method of inquiry and expand their knowledge of living things and what is needed to sustain life and health. They will explore human and other organic structures, the processes that regulate life functions, an introduction to biochemistry, the effects of living and nonliving factors on biological systems, genetics and heredity, and how organisms have changed over time. Students will develop questions, conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, and make conclusions throughout the course.
