Biology is the science of life. In this course we will be investigating the question, what does it mean to be alive? We will study all aspects of life on earth, from cells to biomes, and everything in between.

The material covered in this course will serve as a solid foundation for further studies in medicine, ecology, public health, nutrition, pharmaceuticals, energy production, conservation, and more.

Students should come prepared for class each day with pencils or pens with blue or black ink, a composition or spiral-bound notebook, index cards, and their Biology Coach workbook. A personal set of colored pencils or markers, scissors, and glue is also recommended for each student.

We also do lots of lab activities during class, and go through a lot of gloves. Any student who brings a box of non-latex surgical exam gloves will receive 5 bonus points on the next quiz or test.
