Biology (non-lab)

Biology introduces students to the study of living things. This Biology course covers the concepts and processes that make up the biological makeup of our surroundings, such as cells, genetics, biological diversity, and ecology. Students who have concerns about studying the theory of evolution are not required to read any passages in which it is discussed, nor will they be tested on any material in those passages. For an additional fee, students may receive a laboratory kit and manual to perform and report experiments in conjunction with the exams submitted.

There are 11 examinations in Biology.  Students will choose to do Unit 11A: Contemporary Issues in Biology or Unit 11B: History of Biological Diversity (including evolution).  Online Exams are available.
