This course will focus upon NYS Regents Science Standards involving the use of mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and the application of scientific concepts and theories pertaining to the physical setting and living environment. This course will address the similarities and differences found between living organisms and nonliving things. Areas of biological study will include the following: cellular biology, reproduction, genetics, evolution, biochemical processes, human anatomy & physiology, technology, statistical analysis, ecology, and current events. Less emphasis is placed upon comparative anatomy and more emphasis is placed upon applied understanding and relevance of biology as a whole.
- Scientific Inquiry
- Origin of Life
- Organization and Patterns of Life - Cellular Biology
