This is a one year class.

 

Welcome to Biology class! In this course you will learn both the basics and the latest advances in the field of biological sciences.  This class is designed to be a year in length.  Within the 2 hour class, our first 45-60 minutes is planned as an interactive lecture time.  Students should read from their book prior to class, so that we can use this time to answer any questions and solidify the content of that chapter. 

 

We will follow that with both wet and dry labs that are done in small groups.   We recommend that students form groups (either the whole class gathering outside of class, or smaller teams), to review chapter concepts and complete any unfinished lab work. 

 

This is a challenging high school level class, but we are here to help you succeed! In order to maximize the learning we will take advantage of teacher-class discussion, reading the textbook, laboratory investigation, computer activities, videos, supplemental reading, homework, quizzes, and tests.  There will be a quiz at the end of each chapter.  Tutoring is available as needed!

Extra labs have been added to this class.   We think the kids will love studying the Covid-19 virus, Crispr and the new science of gene editing, micro-arrays and more!  

This class will include the science of Biology from cell structure, photosynthesis, ecology, cell respiration, genetics, DNA, RNA and even PCR experiments!
