Students will investigate biological systems at the molecular,
cellular, and macrobiological level. Hands-on laboratory exercises
incorporating cellular biology, genetics, DNA technology, evolution,
and ecology will be provided to assist students in their
sdlfkjasef
understanding of biological themes. Projects and reading
assignments may be required with each unit of instruction.

Tips for Success


Notebook, pencils, internet access (phone or
computer), completed homework on the day it is due,
current warmups
Food and Drink
Food and drinks are allowed in class unless we are
doing a lab that day. Either may be taken away at the

Units
The Nature of Life & The Scientific Method
Populations and Ecosystems
Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes (Cells)
Photosynthesis and Cell Respiration
Cycles of Matter
Mitosis
Meiosis
DNA, RNA, and Proteins
Chemical Reactions
Genetics

Evolution: Populations of organisms and their


cellular components have changed over time through
both selective and non-selective evolutionary
processes.
Structure and Function: All living systems
(organisms, ecosystems, etc.) are made of structural
components whose arrangement determines the
function of the systems.
Information Flow and Storage: Information (DNA,
for example) and signals are used and exchanged
within and among organisms to direct their
functioning.
Transformations of Energy and Matter: All living
things acquire, use, and release matter and energy for
cellular / organismal functioning.
Systems: Living systems are interconnected, and
interact and influence each other on multiple levels.

You should also be proficient in the following scientific


practices:

Formulate empirically-testable hypotheses.

Interpret visual representations (figures and


diagrams)

Evaluate data and come to a conclusion (with


evidence)

Formulate an argument based on evidence

Grades will be calculated as follows:

total points earned


total points possible
as I believe that every assignment is equally
important to the overall quality of your effort
in this class. Late assignments will be given a
maximum of half credit unless arrangements
have been made with me.
Assignments include:

Lab Reports

Quizzes

Tests

In-class Worksheets (including Lab


Packets)

Warmups

Homework

Group Projects
Academic integrity: Academic dishonesty of any sort will
