Online College Prep Biology

Course Description

This course begins with the overall process of science, then dives right into the main characteristics shared by every living thing and an introduction to the big ideas uniting the study of biology. You’ll study the chemistry of molecules important to life and use that foundation to study cells, organisms, and the interdependence of living things and their environments. You’ll relate cell structures and parts to life-sustaining functions, such as respiration and photosynthesis. You’ll learn about DNA, genetics, and inheritance. You’ll study evolution and the evidence behind it. Charles Darwin pieced together observations and ideas to form the theory of evolution and how it shaped the diversity of life all around you. You’ll study life forms from simple bacteria to complex plants and animals. You’ll notice that adaptations accompany each group of living things to increase their abilities to thrive within their environments.

Students are given an opportunity to identify core concepts through the reading material and then apply that knowledge in review activities. Comprehension will be assessed through formative activities, multiple-choice exams, and a comprehensive final exam.
