Biology with Lab

Full Year Course; 90 minutes

Students work hard on a Biology dissection...

This college-prep biology course provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in creation. Students who take and understand this course will be very well-prepared for a tough university biology course.

CCT will provide microscopes and slides. Instructor will coordinate a class order for dissection materials.
