Class Introduction

This introductory course will cover the material a student might expect to see in a first year high school biology class. We will address all scales of the subject, from biochemistry and cell biology through evolution and ecology. We will also focus on developing scientific skills like asking scientific questions, designing experiments, and analyzing data. We will use a variety of learning modalities to address these topics, including virtual labs, hands-on labs using household objects, mini-debates, and interactive lectures.


During our time together, we will work toward mastery of the material covered in a typical high school biology class. Students will also work to develop an understanding of science as a process, an ability to work effectively in small groups, and a deeper appreciation of the role the natural world plays in our daily lives.
