GRADUATION REQUIREMENT: Two years of science are required for graduation. Two sequential semesters of biology may be taken to satisfy one year of the science requirement for graduation.
COURSE SEQUENCE: All freshmen are required to select a science course to partially satisfy graduation requirements. Biology may be taken to satisfy this requirement. Biology may be taken as an elective during any subsequent year.
COURSE OVERVIEW: Biology is the study of life. It is of special interest for the student because it attempts to develop a realization of the true nature of life and its organization. Planned classroom and laboratory experiences will allow the students to participate in activities from which they will learn methods of collecting and interpreting facts and data in a meaningful way. Students will learn important biological concepts and ideas and will apply these concepts to our changing world. Biology will meet the state requirements for mandated materials such as scientific method, ecology, life compounds/cells, genetics, and evolution.
