Biology

Introduce student(s) to biology, focusing on biochemistry, cellular biology, genetics, DNA, and gene expression. Students should be able to discuss, display what they know/have learned through writing short reflections, and take short quizzes the next session. This is done to check that the student is comprehending and retaining the information. After completing this course, students should be able to apply newly learned concepts to classroom situations with ease.

Class Introduction

In this course, students will preview the major topics that they will see in their high schoolbiology class, from the chemistry of life to cellular processes to evolution and ecology. Students will explore the topics through readings, group work, inquiry-based activities, and notes. Within each topic, we will be doing online labs that will allow students to work on the skills that they need to be successful in high school laboratory classes.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the core principles of biology
  • Apply the scientific method, including:
    • Observe a phenomenon
    • Develop a hypothesis
    • Design an appropriate experiment
    • Collect data
    • Analyze and interpret data
  • Collaborate with partners to solve problems
  • Think critically about new situations by using existing scientific knowledge
