Biology is designed for sophomores ready for a challenge - to learn about all aspects of organisms from the cellular to ecosystem level. This class covers a broad range of topics while delving deep into the most critical aspects of the science of life and living things, particularly cellular processes, genetics, and ecological interactions.
In addition to classwork, homework, tests, quizzes, and labs, students will produce several small projects and papers throughout the year.
You will use hard-copy textbooks in class as needed, but are required to download a digital copy to your district-issued laptop (or other device) for use at home and elsewhere. You will need to click on the link in this paragraph, download the zip file, and then "extract" the textbook files from the zip file. If you have trouble with that, check with your classmates first, then me.
