The honors Biology course is designed to prepare students for AP Biology in addition to all other advanced science courses. It includes a rigorous curriculum covering the following topics:
Semester 1 - Scientific Method, Biochemistry, Cells, Metabolism, Cell Division, and Patterns of Inheritance.
Semester 2 - Molecular Genetics, Evolution, Ecology, Human Physiology, and Plants.
Because of the large volume of material to be covered, this is a fast-paced class. I promise that there will be no busywork. Assignments will include: reading and outlining of chapters, completion of worksheets, and lab reports. Students need to be self-motivated to keep up. In case of absence, students are responsible for making up assignments in order to receive credit.
