The course stresses 3 themes: the nature of life, the continuity of life, and the diversity of life through the study of cellular biology, genetics, evolution, micro-organisms, plants, and animals. The focus is on the application of scientific skills and general biology concepts through inquiry based activities. Students are expected to develop solid scientific research techniques throughout the course. Students must be self-motivated. Competent writing and reading comprehension skills will be expected. Since the topics taught are addressed in more detail and at an accelerated pace, greater initiative and independence is required of the students in both the lecture and lab portions of the course. This course meets 7 periods per week in order to provide extra time for in-depth laboratory explorations. This advanced course is a good match for students expressing an interest in the Science, are "proactive" learners, and have strong critical thinking and problem solving skills.
