9-12 Biology Lab Support
Teacher: Jen Doerr
Section: 18P21 meets on T
0 credits per semester
Prerequisites: *Recommended for students who have completed a-g Math 1A with a C or better.
This is an onsite lab support class to accompany an home study high school biology class.
This course meant to satisfy the laboratory requirement for a-g biology. Students are required to also complete an independent study biology course at home using a textbook/online course of their choice, however the lab will be following traditional biology course topics in the following order: The Scientific method, biochemistry, cell design and function, cellular energy, anabolism and catabolism, genes, chromosomes and cell division, meiosis, generics/heredity/Punnet squares, population genetics, evolution theories, classification, structure and function of bacteria and viruses, diseases and disorders, protozoans, fungi, plant classification and anatomy, plant physiology, invertebrates, vertebrates, ecology, and human anatomy. It is highly suggested to utilize a textbook resource that follows the same topics.
Each week students will participate in a hands-on lab, class discussion and have time to ask questions with regards to their independent study biology course.
Students will be responsible each week to bring a lab notebook, TI-35 or comparable (students may not use cell phones), and a writing utensil.
This is an extra-curricular class that may enrich an independent study science course.
