Honors Biology

This academically rigorous laboratory science class is designed for students who excel in science and are college-bound. This course includes the following topics: cellular biology, patterns of inheritance, natural selection, ecology, diversity of life, classification, and human systems. Students will design, conduct, evaluate, and communicate about scientific investigations. This laboratory science class presents the student with opportunities for exploratory, open-ended scientific investigations. Students will also develop their skills in the care and use of the microscope, laboratory balance, and in the use of the metric system. This class may include the dissection of preserved animals. Success in Honors biology will require work outside the classroom.
