Online Biology

Course Description

Biology (General) is designed to give students an understanding of how living organisms work and the various processes needed for survival. Topics include the nature of life, ecology, cells, genetics, microorganisms, plants, animals and the human body. Students will come to an understanding of how many of these topics are interrelated; for example, how cells form organs that create systems that allow various life functions. Students are given an opportunity to identify key concepts through the reading material and then apply that knowledge in review activities. Comprehension will be assessed through multiple choice exams and a comprehensive multiple choice final exam.
