Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards
The second trimester of Biology (Biology 2), will begin where Biology 1 left off. The course will begin with applying what student remember concerning fundamental genetics and applying it to how our environment and the living things with in it change or evolve over time. Following evolution, students will investigate microorganisms including viruses and bacteria as well as the classification system of all the major classes of organisms. Finally students will have the opportunity to discuss the bioethical side of issues including ecology, and genetics and get a “hands-on” experience with dissection and morphology identification.
