Biology 1
This course is designed to acquaint the student with the concepts and processes of biology. A developmental approach is utilized beginning with life at the cell level and progressing to the most advanced life forms. Laboratory and student projects are an integral part of the course. Topics of study shall include: cytology, genetics, taxonomy, microbiology, ecology, plant and animal survey, and human systems. During the course of instruction in this class, the textbooks, audiovisual materials, and lectures will include instruction and information concerning human growth and development. These topics are designed to inform and instruct only and not to enforce or diminish the individual's personal or religious attitudes.
Biology 1 Honors
This course is designed for the student with a high interest in science and/or who intends to take further science courses. It is designed to acquaint the student with concepts and processes of biology and is a modification of the regular class. Experimentation and individual student inquiry are essential components of the course. During the course of instruction in this class, the textbooks, audiovisual materials, and lectures will include instruction and information concerning human growth and development. These topics are designed to inform and instruct only and not to enforce or diminish the individual's personal or religious attitudes.
Biology, Advanced Placement
This course examines and discusses the principles of biology in considerable detail. Emphasis is placed on laboratory experiments and individual research. This course follows the Advanced Placement scope and sequence. During the course of instruction on this class, the textbooks, audiovisual materials, and lectures will include instruction and information concerning human growth and development. These topics are designed to inform and instruct only and not to enforce or diminish the individual's personal or religious attitudes.
Anatomy and Physiology of Human Systems
Students conduct laboratory investigations/fieldwork, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and problem solving. Topics will be presented through an integration of biology, chemistry, and physics. Students will study the structures and functions of the human body and and body systems and will investigate the body's responses to forces, maintenance of homeostasis, electrical interactions, transport systems, and energy systems. Students will also analyze the relationship between anatomical structures and physiological functions of the human systems.
