High School Biology w/Lab- FIRST HOUR (9th-12th)

Teacher: Donna Neely

Description: This is a 2 hour class. This is a thorough high school level course covering how living organisms are designed and classified, how they interact with one another, and how they interact with their physical environment. Throughout the course, your student will see that life is the result of design and that organisms have been given the ability to adapt to their surroundings. Concepts covered include the chemical processes for life, the structures of RNA and DNA, cell design, and photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and cellular reproduction processes. After a thorough survey of the different kinds of organisms found in nature: archaea, bacteria, protists, fungi, invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants, your student will then learn about ecosystems and the biogeochemical cycles that keep environments hospitable to life.

Students will be required to attend lecture and lab on Mondays. Weekly assignments will be given and students will upload their assignments to an online school software for grading and feedback twice a week. Tests are given over each chapter. Parents will be able to view all assignment descriptions, due dates, and grades online.

Class Length: 16 weeks, year long

Homework: 4 or more hours

Prerequisites: None

Book: Berean Builders Discovering Design with Biology
