Welcome scientists! Science is not just a course you study, but it is part of life. We all observe, ask questions, find out ways to test and explore those questions, and come up with conclusions. I hope this year you find how you can become a better scientist and appreciate more the splendors of Earth and the laws that govern it.
Lab science, full year, required 2 credits, GPA scale = 4
Biology is a very broad science that covers a variety of topics about the world around us. This course will give students the wonderful opportunity of exploring what comprises life on Earth and how that ties into not just who we are as people, but who God is as Creator. As we touch on many known biological concepts, such as genetics and taxonomy, students will gain a diverse understanding of life processes and how they all function together. Dissection may be part of the curriculum and while participation is highly recommended it is not required.
HONORS ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY:
Lab science, full year elective for juniors and seniors, 2 credits, GPA scale = 4.5
Prerequisites: Biology, Chemistry, Physics
This honors course offers an in-depth study of the structure and function of the eleven systems of the human body, along with an examination of disease and disorder as they relate to these systems and homeostasis. This course is intensive in vocabulary and critical thinking so good studying skills are required. Some laboratory time will be included with an emphasis on dissection.
